Gateway T-6836 review:

 

Note: This review is part of our Back to School 2008 roundup , covering specific configurations of popular laptops that can be found in retail stores.

Strong performance and battery life, particularly for the price; attractive, sturdily constructed case; beautiful display that's great for video without being too reflective.

Case finish easily picks up fingerprints and smudges; shallow key travel; lousy speakers.

A standout among budget midsize laptops, the 14.1-inch Gateway T-6836 marries strong performance and battery life with a compact, well-designed case.

Gateway T-6836

 

The value-priced Gateway T-6836 ($800 street) is a capable midsize laptop that can complete everyday computing tasks but can also handle more-processor-intensive jobs like photo editing. Thanks to its large hard drive capacity, this notebook is...

Spacious hard drive. 4GB of system memory. Good performance

Surprisingly heavy system weight. Video output limited to VGA

The Gateway T-6836 is a standard notebook that offers decent performance and features. However, there are other alternatives from Dell, HP, and Lenovo that offer more features (and flare) for around the same price.
