Gateway unveils HD-ready M- and T-series notebooks

Gateway M and T Series

Breaking out from the company's conservative gray notebooks, Gateway on Thursday launched a major redesign of its portables. The 14-inch T-series and 15.4-inch M-series all feature colored top and bottom shells as well as a sleeker design; owners can pick from a safe slate color as well as blue and red. More important is HD video support, Gateway says. Every notebook comes with HDMI output to pipe video to modern flat-panels at up to 1080p; options also exist to equip either notebook line with a Blu-Ray or HD DVD drive. The larger M-series also gets the option of a Mobility Radeon HD 2400 XT for faster HD video decoding, and a 1920x1200 display that can play 1080p video at full detail.

Buyers of either system will also be able to count on having a 1.3-megapixel webcam, Santa Rosa-era Intel Core 2 Duo processors, and stock 802.11a/b/g wireless. More demanding users can pick out 802.11n or Bluetooth for higher-speed networks and wireless peripherals, in addition to a fingerprint reader for body-based security.

Full specifications for the new PCs have not been released, though the company has established a baseline price: the M-6816 and T-6815 will start at $900 and should be customizable through Gateway's own site and shipping in several preset configurations for retail shops by July 22nd.
