Gateway M460 Review (pics, specs)


The Gateway M460 series is designed to be a versatile and surprisingly mobile desktop replacement notebook, based on the wonderful Intel Centrino package. Configuration options allow you to balance price, performance, and mobility. At the low end, the...

Near perfect, gorgeous screen Great performance Outstanding battery life Good value Very Customizable Sleek design

Noisy and sporadic fan

The Gateway M460XL has proved to be a surprise for me. I am becoming sold on Gateway. They offer a very competitive product with little to complain about. The Gateway M460XL is a great all-around notebook for someone who wants a wonderful and large...

Gateway NX550XL Laptop


The Gateway M460X's wide-screen resolution of 1200 by 800 pixels may not be able to match the detail that higher-resolution 15.4-inch wide screens can produce, so you won't squeeze quite as many spreadsheet columns onto the M460X's screen at once or...

Offers loads of USB ports

Pointing stick difficult to use

Gateway has pared its once lushly detailed and illustrated printed users' manual down to a small, plain booklet, with networking tips relegated to a separate Acrobat manual on the hard drive. The documentation may not be as cohesive as before, but it...

Offers loads of USB ports

Pointing stick difficult to use

Slim laptop has 4 USB ports--more than most laptops have. It has a problematic pointing stick device, however.

Gateway M460X


Though it's well designed, the M460X has a disappointing keyboard.

The M460X is light and snazzy looking for a 15.4-inch wide screen, but don't consider it if you're set on using a pointing stick.

Gateway M460


The Gateway M460 has all the right components and power to get your workday started, but it lags behind offerings from Dell and HP in terms of IT-friendly software tools and overall design.

Fast processor. Vast selection of connectivity ports

Below-average screen. Plastic material is not scratchproof

The Gateway M460 has all the right components and processing power to kick your workday into high gear. Yet its bulky, less-than-durable design and slim software and security offerings make it a B-list competitor.

Product Specifications

Widescreen display and long-lasting battery make this notebook the perfect traveler. The new M460 Series features a modular bay so you can add an extra hard drive, a floppy drive, a CD-RW or DVD drive, without powering down. Mobile Intel Celeron and Pentium processors give you longer-lasting mobility at a great value.
