Gateway M210

Gateway M210 review


Gateway M210X Editors' note: In early September 2005, Gateway changed the names of many of its laptops. Read our explanation to learn how to make sense of the new names and where to find CNET's reviews of Gateway laptops. (10/6/05)

Portable, wide-screen design; affordable; competent performance; includes all the ports and connections most users need.

Inferior battery life; USB 2.0 ports bunched together; only one year of toll-free tech support.

The Gateway M210X delivers performance in a portable, wide-screen package, but it has insufficient battery life for regular mobile users.
