Gateway launches laptops for the holidays

Two new desktop-replacement laptops for Gateway: the P-6301 and the P-6822.


Every year they arrive earlier and earlier: press releases touting new products "for the holidays." One such release arrived this morning from Gateway, with news of two new P-series laptops for holiday giving. The 8.3-pound laptops include a 17-inch display with a 1,440x900 native resolution, a full-sized keyboard with numeric keypad, and a DVD burner with LabelFlash (which lets you burn labels onto special discs). Both new models run Vista Home Premium.

The lower-end configuration, the $800 Gateway P-6301, features a budget Pentium Dual Core processor built on Intel's previous-generation chip architecture and carrying 1GB of RAM, integrated Intel X3100 graphics, and a 160GB hard drive. The higher-end Gateway P-6822 features the Intel Core 2 Duo T5250 processor plus 1GB of RAM, integrated Intel X3100 graphics, and a 250GB hard drive. The P-6822 also adds a built-in 1.3-megapixel Webcam and an HDMI connector, all for the price of $950.

Both fixed-configuration P-series models will be available only in stores (not on Gateway's Web site) starting October 14.
