Gateway Adds M320 And M520 Laptop Lines

From Gateway’s press release:

Gateway is making it easier for students, consumers and professionals to take their show on the road with two new notebook lines — the Gateway M320 and the Gateway M520. Ideal for the back-to-school season, the two notebook lines are available today through Gateway’s direct sales channels for customers who like to shop online or by phone.

Although the new PC lines are very different, they are both ideal for students going back to school. The Gateway M320, starting at only $1,099, combines the best features of mobile computing for students who want to bring
their notebook to class or study groups and take advantage of wireless computing on campus.  The notebook’s key features include a thin-and-light frame that weighs only 5.5 pounds, integrated wireless, enhanced battery life and Intel Centrino technology.  Plus, the Gateway M320 is one of the lightest notebooks on the market with large 14- and 15-inch displays. 

The new Gateway M520 is a full-featured notebook that rivals desktop PCs in performance. The notebook line offers a 15- or 15.4-inch widescreen display, Intel Celeron or Pentium 4 processing with Hyper Threading (HT) technology and advanced multimedia capabilities.  For a limited time, the Gateway M520 CS is offered at only $699 after $100 instant and $100 mail-in rebates totaling $200 in savings. 

“Back-to-school is the time of year when students get serious about their studies and these new notebooks will help them get to work,” said Ed Fisher, Gateway’s senior vice president of product planning.  “At the same time, they
offer great entertainment features — like widescreen displays, memory card readers and ample ports for connecting to external devices.  Our new line of notebooks addresses a wide range of students’ computing needs, from
performance and multimedia to mobility and battery life.”

The Gateway M320: Thin and Light with a Huge Display

Boasting a thin-and-light design at a great price, the new Gateway M320 notebook combines the highlights of mobile computing — slim size, wireless connectivity, enhanced battery life and excellent mobile performance.  Even
though the notebook is only about an inch thin, it is available with a 15-inch display — one of the largest for a thin-and-light notebook. 

Optimized for the demands of mobile computing, the Gateway M320 notebook PC includes an Intel Celeron M processor or Intel Centrino Mobile Technology with an Intel Pentium M processor.  The new PC also offers integrated 802.11g wireless to let consumers, students and business users take advantage of wireless computing at campuses, hotels and other WiFi Hot Spots.  Making it easier to remain productive on the road, the notebook line offers up to
4.5 hours of battery life using a 6-cell Lithium Ion battery.

The Gateway M320 comes with either a combo DVD-ROM/CD-RW drive or DVD burner, large hard drive and a 4-in-1 media card reader (MMC, SD, Memory Stick, Memory Stick Pro).  The new computers are offered in several
