The Gateway M151X Artic Bloom Laptop was launched. From what we can tell, this is one horrible laptop you don’t want to buy since it comes with Vista with only 2GB of memory.
We’d do a more comprehensive analysis but by doing our 3 seconds look at the specs and the $849.99 price tag (for the most basic setup), the Gateway M151X has horrible specs.
FIrst, look at their 15.4″ LCD display which boast 1280×800 pixel maximum resolution, is that a joke?
Even most laptops off the shelve come with 1400×1050 pixels. If you are gonna buy this laptop for your 6 year old, it might be a good buy but otherwise, just stay away!
