With its laptops, Gateway has consistently put performance over design. The T-140X however, signals a change of pace. This 14-inch widescreen’s slick looks, complete with a choice of colors and designs laminated into the lid and palm rests, will appeal to the style-conscious. But to keep the price low, Gateway went with weak processing components, hurting performance.
The T-140X's Intel Core 2 Duo T5250 CPU runs at a modest 1.5 GHz. There's only 1GB of RAM (not enough for Vista Home Premium); moreover, the integrated graphics grab some of the system memory. Consequently, the T-140X produced low SYSmark 2007 Preview and multimedia scores. Also, the 49-Wh (six-cell) battery lasted just 2 hours 5 minutes running down a DVD.
Gateway did add a few nice components, including a 160GB hard drive, a dual-layer DVD burner, and a 1.3-megapixel swivel webcam. We also liked the full-size keyboard, which is solid and responsive. But although the T-14OX is a handsome laptop at a low price, for the cost of upgrading you could get a better system like the Dell Inspiron 1420.Gateway T-140X: $899Check This Out:Toshiba Satellite P205-S6237: Bargain Laptop ColossusAlienware Area-51 M9750: Top of the Gaming HeapLenovo ThinkPad R61: A newly Graceful ThinkPad
