I just purchased a new Gateway MX 6424, so far I love it.I chose it over the HP dv4000 because of it's battery life, AMD Turion 64 processor, and overall better reports. The HP has the least battery life of 3 units that were tested, and the Gateway was rated best. Try Costco and check it out.
Does anyone have any experience with the Gateway AMD 64 Turion laptops in regards to battery life. I am also considering the Hp Dv4000 series for the track record, internal bluetooth, speaker, etc.. It just costs 300 bucks and I can't find a review of the gateway.
