Gateway NX860X Evaluation


Recommended Posts

Given the NX860X's somewhat hefty weight of 7.7 pounds, we're definitely not looking for road-warrior mobility in this desktop replacement. Battery life is, of course, a concern, but when you’re dealing with desktop replacements, you’re not talking about a machine that you would throw over your shoulder while jogging through an airport terminal.

We’ll be looking at the power of our Core Duo (especially when running on batteries), graphics, ease of use, and, of course, support. How much of a current desktop PC can you cram into an inch-thick clamshell? Can you make the NX860X do double duty at home and at work - and maybe even triple duty at a LAN gaming party? How much does the 1440x900 "cinematic" display improve the movie-watching experience?

Gateway has listened to us in the past, for which we give them a lot of respect. They’ve fixed their bloatware, anti-virus, and recovery issues (wow, by the way), but they’ve still had misses. Can they take this one to the bank, or will they fall short?
