Gateway revamps NV series for 2010

Gateway today overhauled its NV series with both cosmetic and speed upgrades. The notebook backs away Gateway's usual glossy design in favor of a matte, textured shell. Performance comes through the addition of Core i3 and i5 processors as well as versions with dedicated Mobility Radeon video, although GMA graphics (on Intel versions) as well as AMD's mobile Athlon and Turion chips will be available for frugal users.

Only one configuration, the NV59C09u, is available on launch. It sits in the mid-range with a 15.6-inch display, 2.13GHz Core i3, Intel graphics, 4GB of RAM and a 320GB hard drive, but is a relatively inexpensive movie viewer with a Blu-ray drive included in its $800 price. Besides different tiers of performance, the NV7 will have a 17.3-inch display while other versions will have up to 640GB of disk space.

The new model should be available today, with other versions coming in the future. Gateway's least expensive system with the new design will cost $530 but hasn't been detailed.
