Multimedia loving 15.6-inchers
Gateway has been very busy these couple of days and have also announced its new NV series 15.6-inch notebooks. The series will start of with two models, one base on AMD and other on Intel platform. Both systems will use the same 15.6-inch LED-backlit screen with a 1366x768 resolution and will come with Windows Vista Home Premium OS.
The US $499.99 priced Gateway NV5214u features a 2.1GHz Athlon 64 X2 QL-64 CPU, 4GB of DDR2 memory, Radeon HD 3200 integrated graphics via AMD RS780MN chipset, 320GB of hard drive space, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Gigabit LAN, 8x DVD SuperMulti optical drive, four USB ports and D-Sub and HDMI output.
The second one has identical specifications, except of course the fact that it is based on Intel's platform with Intel Core 2 Duo T6500 working at 2.1GHz which is paired up with Intel's GM45 chipset with GMA 4500MHD. This one also has a bit higher US $599.99 price tag.
Both drives have the same 372x250x26-37mm (WxDxH) dimensions and both will come with a 6-cell Lithium Ion 4400mAh battery. The weight on the other hand is not the same as according to the specs, the cheaper AMD based one weighs 3.1kg while the other one is a bit lighter at 2.65kg.
