Irvine, Calif. — Gateway is adding new notebooks and desktops for the back-to-school season.
The company’s new notebooks include:
the Gateway P-series desktop replacement with a 17-inch widescreen;
the Gateway M-series with a 15.4-inch widescreen; and
the Gateway T-Series “thin-and-light” notebook with a 14.1-inch widescreen.
According to a release, several of the new notebooks feature Intel Centrino Mobile technology and Intel Core 2 Duo processors. They also come with integrated Wi-Fi and Web cams.
The devices feature DVD burners with LabelFlash to burn text and images directly onto a disc label.
Several models are said to offer HDMI compatibility.
Other key notebook features include a multimedia panel integrated into the keyboard to provide easy access to frequently used audio and video functions.
The M-Series and T-Series are available in garnet red, Pacific blue, silver and gray.
On the desktop side, Gateway has also made a new introduction to its existing “value gaming” FX Series, added two retail-only models to its DX Series for digital media, and added a GT Series that the manufacturer said is well-suited for both work and play.

The DX4710 has an Intel Core 2 Quad Processor Q6600, Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit and 6GB of memory and is available at a suggested $1,000. It comes complete with a two-year warranty and a Gateway 22-inch widescreen high-def LCD monitor.
The DX4200 features an AMD Phenom 9500 64-bit Quad-Core processor and 6GB of memory. It also offers ATI Radeon HD 3450 hybrid graphics all at a suggested retail of $750.
Finally, the GT5692 and the GT5694 are part of the company’s new GT series; each retails for $550 and $650, respectively.
