Gateway P-171XL gaming notebook tested

Posted on Thursday, February 14 2008 @ 09:11:04 CET by

ExtremeTech has taken a closer look at the Gateway P-171XL notebook which is designed for gaming:
Okay, so we're exaggerating a bit. If you're serious gamer on the go, even 15 pounds for a fully self-contained unit is workable. Now, Gateway brings a sub-10 pound gaming laptop to the table. Even the version loaded up with two hard drives weighs less than ten pounds, while the single drive versions come in at just under nine pounds (not counting the 120W power brick.)

Gateway has also put the cost on a diet as well. You can buy a model that includes Nvidia's GeForce Go 8800 GTS 512MB graphics and a 2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo for $1,599. The high-end P-171XLFX we tested had a RAID 0 array, a Core 2 Duo X7900, 3GB of RAM, the 8800 GTS, and an HD DVD drive for one penny under $3,000.

All of this mobile PC goodness comes in an attractive black package with orange accents, a full size keyboard (including numeric keypad), and nifty touch-sensitive transport controls.
Read the full review over here. Overall the reviewer seemed to like this notebook, it looks good, has good performance, a nice keyboard and HD DVD support.
