Combining a top laptop CPU and graphics card for less than the competition, the Gateway P-171XL FX jumps to the top of our favorite gaming laptops list, even if you get stuck with an HD DVD drive.
We loved the pitch for the Gateway P-6831 FX: a 17-inch laptop with 3GB of RAM and Nividia's GeForce 8800 graphics card for only $1,350. But keep an eye on price changes to get the best deal.
A standout among budget midsize laptops, the 14.1-inch Gateway T-6836 marries strong performance and battery life with a compact, well-designed case.
Gateway's affordable multimedia laptop, the MD7818u, has some high-end design touches, but is a little too big for travel.
A large-screen laptop with very good performance, the Gateway NV7802u is an attractive choice for home or office.
The Gateway NV7901u has a large screen, a Core i5 processor and very good graphics at a reasonable price, but leaving Blu-ray out of the package might be a deal-breaker for some.
The Gateway P-6860FX offers GeForce 8800 gaming muscle and plenty of memory in a midprice laptop, making it a great choice for gamers who fall just short of hard-core.
The 11-inch, AMD-powered Gateway LT3103u does well on price and performance, but drops the ball on battery life when compared with the competition.
You could do a lot worse than the Gateway NV55S05u for a solid RAM-hard drive combination and an all-around decent processor in a 15-inch laptop, provided you can live with poor battery life.
With high-end performance and graphics, the Gateway M680XL is a power user's dream come true, but it lacks both the security that businesses demand and the multimedia goodies home users want.
The Gateway 450's solid features and battery life make it a dependable thin-and-light travel companion for both business and home users.
The Gateway M520X Plus lacks flash but offers good performance and features for a fair price.
Gateway's new P-172X FX offers high-end perks in a midpriced laptop, making it a reasonable choice for gamers who fall just short of hardcore.
Far heavier than traditional convertible tablets, the wide-screen Gateway CX200X adds pen functionality to a powerful midsize notebook.
It may not have the latest components or top security, but the Gateway M460S offers top performance, long battery life, and a choice of displays to satisfy corporate users of all stripes.
