Gateway ID49C04u


$750.00 Released June, 2010

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Keyboard is comfortable to work with, has a nice response. More USB ports than you'll typically need. Plugs directly into an HDTV with the HDMI port, no setup required.

The Cons:Generates a lot of heat when pushed to perform. Ships with a large collection of software that isn't very useful. Screen doesn't always come back when you open it, needs to be closed and opened again.

The ID49C04u is one of three 14" notebook computers in Gateway's ultra-thin ID Series, which targets students and other highly mobile consumers. Without sacrificing performance, it offers up to 6 hours of battery life and a form factor under an inch thick, with a weight just over 5 lbs.

A webcam, stereo microphones supporting noise suppression, and built-in Wi-Fi are also standard. The top-end 14" model is the ID49C08u, which features a faster processor, discrete graphics, and more storage capacity.
