The Gateway M460 notebook was designed to provide maximum battery life and the widest range of advanced battery options. It provides from four to seven hours of battery life on a single charge with one of the primary 6-cell, 8-cell and 12-cell Lithium Ion batteries. Also, the notebook has a modular hot-swap bay, so an optional modular 6-cell battery can be used with the 12-cell primary battery to achieve up to ten plus hours of battery life for all-day computing. When combined with the notebook’s thin-and-light design — starting weight is less than six pounds and it measures as little as 1.31 inches thin — the battery life and other features make the Gateway M460 the obvious choice for professionals looking for a powerful, portable PC.
The Gateway M460 can be customized with a wide range of features, including displays, processors, memory, hard drives and optical drives, so each organization can choose the configurations that best fit their needs. As a result, it can be configured to meet almost any budget or performance specification. This flexibility saves IT departments’ time and money by letting them standardize on a single notebook platform, regardless of the varied end-user requirements. Further protecting Gateway customers’ investment, the Gateway M460 promises image stability and a long managed life cycle like its predecessors, the Gateway M405 and Gateway 450.
“The Gateway M460 addresses professional organizations’ needs for a flexible, powerful notebook,” said Greg Memo, Gateway’s senior vice president, products & operations. “This single platform can be customized for use in a range of environments, making it easier for IT departments to manage. It also provides investment protection thanks to its new powerful, industry-standard technology and long life cycle.”
Based on the new Intel 915 chipset, and available with high performance Intel Centrino mobile technology, the Gateway M460 delivers a multitude of benefits for customers. The M460 supports the latest Intel Pentium-M and Intel Celeron-M processors for optimized mobile performance. It also utilizes PCI Express, which provides faster performance and improved graphics. DDR2 memory further improves system performance.
The Gateway M460 incorporates a range of options that enable it to scale to meet a range of requirements. The notebook is offered with either a 15.4-inch widescreen display, which is ideal for departments such as accounting or graphics design, or a 15-inch standard display, for employees undertaking general computing tasks. The modular hot-swap bay supports removable optical drives, a second hard drive, a second battery or floppy drive.
