Gateway NV Notebooks Now Offer One-Button Social Networking

Acer subsidiary Gateway has updated its NV line of notebook computers with two new models with boosted entertainment and social networking capability: a “social networking” button on the models lets users tap into their social networking sites (like Flickr, Facebook, and Twitter) with a single tap to see the latest items and post their own updates.

“Mobile entertainment means something entirely different today than it did just a few short years ago—more often it comes in the form of video clips, photos, and updates on friends’ and fan pages by using popular social networking sites and tools,” said Gateway’s senior product market manager for notebooks and netbooks John Nguyen, in a statement. “The Gateway NV Series notebook line is well-equipped to let customers have quick access to their entertainment and social networks with easy-to-use technology.”

The Gateway NV5 series will feature a 15.6-inch 1,366 by 768-pixel display, while the NV7 will step up to a 17.3-inch 1,600 by 900-pixel display; both will feature high-definition LED-backlit LCD widescreen displays. Both lines will be available with Intel Core or AMD Athlon/Turion processors; they’ll also feature HDMI output for hooking up to a big screen TV, 802.11/b/g/n Wi-Fi, gigabit Ethernet, and a high-definition webcam. Select models will also feature integrated Blu-ray players for expanded high-def entertainment options. The NV5s will run off integrated graphics, while the NV7s will have an option to step up to ATI Mobility Radeon HD discrete graphics.

The first model in the NV line will be the NV59C09u; it sports the 15.6-inch display, an Intel Core i3 processors running at 2.13 GHz, 4 GB of RAM, a 320 GB hard drive, 4× Blu-ray drive, a multi-in-one media card reader, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, and a 6-cell battery Gateway says will offer up to 4.5 hours of use—it’ll also have a two-year warranty. The NV59C09u will carry a suggested price of $799.99; however, selected NV configurations will run as low as $529.99
