Gateway 450X Laptop Review (pics, specs)

eschatonik

...Other machines I considered during my research were: The IBM Thinkpad T41 (too expensive with the same features), the Dell Inspiron 600m (very nicely priced, but the 450X s 15 LCD beat out the 600m s 14.1 ), and the Sony Z1 series (way too expensive with the feature set I needed)....The 450X maxes out at 1024MB (1GB) via 2 user-accessible SDRAM slots, which should be more than enough for most mobile computing applications. ...Along the left side of the machine you will find a port bay containing the following: (1) Microphone jack (1/8 ) (1) Line in jack (1/8 ) (1) Headphone jack (1/8 ) (1) Firewire (IEEE-1394/iLink) (2) USB 2.0 ports left side of Gateway 450X (view larger image) Right next to that is another bay containing the 450X s PCMCIA interface. ...
