Gateway M460 review

 

Gateway M460 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)

Good performance; long battery life; up to five-year optional warranty.

Lax security; flimsy keyboard.

It may not have the latest components or top security, but the Gateway M460S offers top performance, long battery life, and a choice of displays to satisfy corporate users of all stripes.

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...

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 processing power to kick your workday into high gear.

Fast processor. Vast selection of connectivity ports.

Below-average screen. Plastic material is not scratchproof.

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.
