File-It-Under: Techies on a budget By: D.F.Skin
Gateway computers,yes the Gateway computers which still have computers on the market surprisingly are launching a line of budget touch screen laptops starting at $330. Now if you been a frequent reader of this website,you know that I have major issues with touch screen laptops,I mean you just can't have both,but that's just me.But surprisingly touchscreen laptops have been in big demand lately and touchscreen laptop are slowly replacing standard laptops,more and more models are giving way to touchscreen support. Now you're starting to see low cost touchscreen laptops creep up on the market. That's the case with Gateway which has a few budget friendly models they want to sell to you (US) consumers,from the 10-inch LT41P to the 15-.6-inch NV570P.
The 10-inch smaller model (LT41P) features a 1366 x 768 display resolution that's powered by Intel Celeron processor as an option, 2GB of DDR3L memory, up to 500GB storage capacity, 802.11n WiFi, two USB 2.0 ports, a USB 3.0 port, and a SD card reader. Also add on the basic standard HD webcam, and yes it comes with Windows 8.
Then we have Gateway's NV570P which starts at a $450 price point and sports a much bigger HD display that measures at 15.6-inches, it has the 3rd generation Intel (I'm assuming its the new Haswell CPU) Core processor options, up to 8GB of DDR3 RAM, up to 750GB storage capacity, and added DVD burner (no Bluray), 802.11n WiFi, two USB 2.0 ports, a USB 3.0 port,SD card, and yes the standard usual HD webcam, Windows 8 as your operating system.
Both of these models are now available for sell.
