In pictures: Gateway's fashion-forward notebooks

We take a look at the new Gateway notebooks, which will hit Australia on 15 August

P-79 Series FX

We can't really say Gateway's most expensive notebook is "fashionable" in a traditional sense. In fact, we'll go with downright gaudy. However, if you're after the same geeky bling found on Acer's Predator gaming desktops, you need look no further than this gaming notebook/desktop replacement. Starting at $3999, the P-79 Series FX has a 17in screen, 1TB of storage (comprising two 500GB hard drives), Dolby sound and a Blu-Ray burner. The power-hungry can configure the P-79 Series FX notebooks with an Intel Core 2 Quad Q9000 notebook, 4GB of DDR3 memory and a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260M graphics card with 1GB of dedicated DDR3 memory.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
