Gateway has launched a pair of inexpensive notebooks with ten-point multitouch displays, aimed at students and small business users. The smaller LT41P range sports a 10.1-inch 1366x768 display and ships with Microsoft Office Home and Student 2013 pre-installed, while the NV570P opts for a 15.6-inch HD widescreen version and is available with higher-specification models
Gateway today announced its new Gateway One ZX4270 all-in-one desktop series for the holiday shopping season. This new series, designed for Windows 8, offers a 19.5 inch "HD+" non-glare LED display, USB 3.0 connectivity, and a dual-core processor for an entry-level price.
Taiwan computer manufacturer Acer is discontinuing its eMachines brand. The move, which will see the brand's operations come to a close, forms part of the company's overall move away from budget base models and towards ultrabooks and similar form factors, something CEO JT Wang started in late 2011.
PC maker Acer and sub-brand Gateway have revealed a couple of new PCs, the Predator AG3620 and the DX4860-UR14P, respectively. Both lines will offer Intel's latest Ivy Bridge processors. Acer will get the new chips first, however, starting with the 3.4GHz Core i7-3770.
Gateway has taken the Acer Iconia Tab A500 and rebranded it as its own, calling it the A60 in the process. Specs remain largely the same, with a dual-core 1GHz Tegra 2 for a processor, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of integrated storage. The Android 3.1 tablet is still framed around a 10.1-inch, 1280x800 screen.
Consumer Reports' refreshed notebook rankings [sub. required] gave Apple the top spot in virtually all notebook rankings. As of late May, the updated MacBook Pros led the 15-inch category with 76 to 78 points versus Dell's XPS 15 at 73 points, while the 17-inch models just edged ahead of the HP dv7 (79 points) with 80 and 81 points. All of the 13-inch models placed second at 70 to 72 points, but they were only topped by Apple's own 13-inch MacBook Air, which leapt ahead at 76 points.
Intel's launch for Sandy Bridge Core processors has been preempted this week with discoveries that at least one Malaysian retailer, Compuzone, was selling the desktop chips early. Four Core i5 chips, ranging from the 2.8GHz 2300 model to the 3.3GHz 2500, are on sale alongside the 3.4GHz Core i7 2600 variants. ASUS' matching P8P67 mainboards and equivalent Gigabyte boards were on sale at the same time, Lowyat found.
When questioned about netbooks, Apple's chief operating officer Tim Cook said the company had "a couple of interesting ideas" about tackling a segment that has focused on bargains over speed. We've now seen what was meant by the plurality in that statement: after the iPad, we now have the 11-inch MacBook Air, the smallest Mac ever. But is this Air providing a better direction, or is it simply the closest Apple will ever get to a netbook or a CULV notebook? Our MacBook Air review finds out.
Apple achieved a rare feat and outsold Acer in the US this summer, new IDC estimates showed today. The company is estimated to have shipped almost exactly 2 million Macs just to the US in the quarter, beating out the combined Acer and Gateway's 1.95 million. Apple grew more than twice as quickly as any other US vendor, reaching 10.6 percent of the market after it shipped about 24.1 percent more Macs over the same time last year.
Gateway this morning reworked its FHD and FHX displays to get a significant makeover, including one big break from traditional design. The FHD2303L has a rare asymmetric neck and a very thin base that creates the appearance that the display is floating in mid-air. It and the others are based on TN panels but run at a native 1080p and are LED backlit with a very high 12,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio and 250cd/m2 brightness.
