Gateway drops a $699 laptop
The new Gateway NX570 costs $699!
Looks like the holidays have come early for cheap-laptop hunters: Today Gateway announced a 15.4-inch notebook that will cost just $699 through December 28. At that price, the NX570X comes stocked with a 1.6GHz Intel Core Duo T2050 processor; 512MB of swift 667MHz RAM; an 80GB, 5,400rpm hard drive; integrated Intel GMA 950 graphics; and a CD burner. That's not exactly a mind-blowing configuration, but it is quite respectable, considering most laptops in the sub-$800 range cheap out with generations-old components and missing features.
All the models in the NX570 series will include a 15.4-inch WXGA display and will run on
