Gateway Kicks Up Chic Styling on Revamped Gateway ID and Gateway NV Series Notebook Lines
New 14-Inch ID Series Pioneers New Ultra-Compact Chassis; Stylish Designs Complement Social Media and Entertainment Features
IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 07/07/2011 -- Gateway today introduces the revamped style of its two lines of Gateway notebook PCs -- the Gateway ID Series and Gateway NV Series. Both updated lines feature incredibly stylish designs in the most in-demand sizes, powered by the latest in mobile technology.
The Gateway ID47 Series breaks new ground by fitting its 14-inch HD widescreen back-lit LED display with full edge-to-edge glass into a chassis typically used for smaller 13.3-inch models. The Gateway NV Series features a new sleek design with a large 15.6-inch display and instant social media connections. Both feature USB 3.0 for fast transfers and device charging.
Gateway ID Series for Creativity, Mobility with an Attitude
The Gateway ID47 Series' ultra slim design and 14-inch HD widescreen LED display with eye-catching sleek edge-to-edge glass delivers maximum enjoyment and usefulness in an ultra-compact design. In addition to the larger display, customers will be able to enjoy an integrated DVD drive. Customer usability was top-of-mind when designing the comfortable keyboard and wrapped edgeless touchpad, which is more than 20 percent larger than the previous generation, giving customers more room to navigate and use multi-gestures.
In addition, the Gateway ID47 Series gives quick access to digital media with capacitive touch media keys for easy control of features such as play, forward, pause and volume control. The Gateway ID Series boasts High-Definition audio support with Dolby Home Theater v4 Audio that delivers crisp and clear sound through its full-length mesh speaker bar. All of these capabilities fit into the ID47 Series' slim chassis that measures only 12.97(W) x 8.95(D) x 0.85-1.13(H) inches, so it is comfortable to carry and fits easily into a briefcase or book bag. The notebooks are powered by second-generation Intel® Core™ processors.
"Notebook PCs are a constant companion in today's mobile savvy culture, as we transition through recreation and productivity," said Steve Smith, senior product marketing manager, for Gateway notebooks. "The stylish new Gateway ID and Gateway NV Series deliver very useful extras for entertainment and social networking and a big boost in performance wrapped up in elegant designs. They are ideal for customers who want the latest in chic, modern style and don't want to compromise in performance."
NV Series Elegant Design with Cinematic Entertainment
The new Gateway NV Series models feature an elegant and modern design that is ideal for today's style-conscious mobile PC users. The system features either a subtle geometric pattern or the digital wave pattern on the matte chassis lid. The interior is clean and uncluttered with a comfortable chiclet-style keyboard and corresponding pattern on the palm rest.
The new NV57 Series provides excellent mobile performance with second-generation Intel® Core™ processors with Intel HD Graphics 3000 with 128MB of dedicated system memory. The new NV55 Series provides great performance while maximizing battery-life with new AMD A-Series processors.
USB 3.0 for Speedy Transfers and Additional Connections
Both the ID Series and NV Series are ideal for entertainment and productivity, providing all the ports customers need to connect to their devices such as camcorders and digital cameras, printers and more. They feature HDMI 1080p output, so customers can use a convenient single-cable connection to deliver HD video and audio to an external source. The notebooks feature media card readers that accept popular media cards.
Social Networking, Connectivity and Long Battery Life
Keeping up on social networks is incredibly easy with the connectivity options in the new Gateway ID and Gateway NV Series. The notebook PCs come with integrated 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi Certified for a fast, reliable connection to hotspots and wireless networks. Plus, the integrated HD 1.3MP webcam provides top-quality audio and video recording for crisp and clear high-resolution images for online chats and capturing video and photos.
