Gateway Announces its Back-To-School Line of Notebooks, Desktops and Displays

Gateway announced its back-to-school line of notebooks, desktops and displays delivering popular features, proven technologies and solid performance at an affordable price. New Gateway NE notebooks meet a wide range of needs for families and students who want the latest technology for school papers, research and presentations. Powered by the latest processors from Intel and AMD and supported by up to 8GB of DDR3 dual-channel memory, students have the power to multi-task as they enjoy everyday activities, such as web browsing, enjoying apps in Windows 8 and working on school assignments. The Gateway NE lines come in models with either a 15.6-inch (1366 x 768) or 17.3-inch (1600 x 900 resolution) Ultrabright LED-backlit display. HD video and graphics are vibrant with vivid and accurate colors and superior image quality. The displays also show graphics and text that are crisp and clear. Plus, the two built-in stereo speakers and HD audio support enhance the entertainment experience with rich sound. The HD webcam and built-in microphone are great for recording video and photos for school projects as well as video chatting with classmates. The widescreen design makes room for a full-sized keyboard and a dedicated numeric keypad, a great extra for students in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) classes. The Gateway NE Series boosts usability with the connectors and ports that link it to popular consumer electronics for sharing data, photos and video. Customers will enjoy speedy file transfers on the USB 3.0 port that are up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0. The additional two USB 2.0 ports reliably connect to printers and more. The HDMI port lets customers use a convenient, single cable connection to deliver high-quality visuals and audio to a home theater or external LCD. The Gateway NE notebook line features large-capacity hard drives up to 1TB of capacity for storing large amounts of data and files. Most models feature a super-multi DVD drive that is M-DISC READY(TM) for proven permanent archival quality data. With it, customers can back up important data, such as family photos and video, to M-DISC media that is designed to last up to 1,000 years The Gateway NE Series was redesigned to feature smooth lines and a new slimmer form factor that is perfect for taking to classes and study groups. The Gateway NE5 models with 15.6-inch display measure only 1.0-inch thin, while the Gateway NE7 with a 17.3-inch inch display measures just 1.36 inches thin, so it can be easily transported in a backpack or briefcase. Gateway's newest Windows 8-powered desktops meet the requirements of today's students and families and include the Gateway One ZX all-in-one desktop, Gateway DX Series of standard mini towers and the Gateway SX Series of small form factor desktops. The Gateway One ZX all-in-one desktop integrates a PC and a stunning 21.5-inch Full HD Ultrabright(TM) LCD for convenience and space-savings. It also comes with an Intel(R) Pentium(R) Processor G2030 processor (3.0GHz, 3MB total cache) and 4GB DDR3 dual-channel memory, enough speed for completing school assignments as well as social networking, listening to music or casual gaming. It offers a giant 1TB hard drive and an optical drive as well as built-in 2.5W stereo speakers and high-def audio with 2.1-channel surround sound support. The Gateway DX Series desktops deliver power and expansion for students and families who require strong performance for games, movies and video. These practical desktops pack ample muscle in their expandable chassis with up to a fourth generation Intel(R) Core(TM) i5 or AMD A Series processor with speeds of up to 3.7GHz, as much as 10GB DDR3 dual-channel memory and a 1TB hard drive. This series provides up to two speedy USB 3.0 ports and as many as 10 USB 2.0 ports depending on model. The compact Gateway SX Series is a third of the size of standard desktops and less than 10.5-inches tall, making these desktops ideal for tight spaces such as dorm rooms, bedrooms and studio apartments. They may be compact but they still offer solid performance with up to a third-generation Intel(R) Core(TM) i3 or AMD A Series processor with speeds of up to 3.40GHz, as much as 8GB DDR3 dual-channel memory for efficient multitasking and up to a 1TB hard drive for archiving a wide library of class work, music and more. They also provide up to 8 USB 2.0 ports depending on model. All Gateway desktop models provide an HDMI port for connecting to a TV or monitor via a single cable, an optical drive for backing up data and burning CDs or DVDs, and high-definition audio with 5.1 channel surround sound support. They also come with 10/100/1000 Ethernet LAN and a Gateway multimedia USB keyboard and mouse.
