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...

Gateway M460 Notebook (2.13-GHz Pentium M, 512MB 533-MHz DDR2)

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.

Expert review by:

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.

Expert review by:

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.

Gateway M460XL

 

First off the how fast the compute is unblievable in my opion, I noticed no diffrence in processing power when pludge in or when on the battery. I say pay extra $40 dollars for the 12 cell for great battery life, when gaming last about 2hours and 36...

Gateway M460X

 

The default setup was a very pleasuable. I have a Pentium M 735 vs. the 740, which Gateway has MANY different config's in this model. Gateway has excellent screens for the price in their lower to mid-grade laptops. I put in an extra 512 to get myself...

Stylish, GREAT screen, nice features

Slow hard drive, wish it had XP Pro

Gateway M460S

 

I have the M460XL-QS, which somes pre-configured with 512K high-speed RAM, a fast (5400 rpm) 80 meg HD, and an ATI 128 meg video card that supports a WXGA+ display that is simply STUNNING! Better than my Dell 1905 LCD display with very sharp resolution...

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.
