A few days ago, Gateway (ACER) introduced its new ID47, NV55 and NV57 notebooks with USB 3.0 for the U.S. and Canada.
Both updated lines feature incredibly stylish designs in the most in-demand sizes, powered by the latest in mobile technology.
The Gateway ID47 Series breaks new ground by fitting its 14-inch HD widescreen back-lit LED display with full edge-to-edge glass into a chassis typically used for smaller 13.3-inch models. The Gateway NV Series features a new sleek design with a large 15.6-inch display and instant social media connections. Both feature USB 3.0 for fast transfers and device charging.
The fashionable look and feel of the new Gateway ID Series comes in two designs – the “Infinity Blue Liquid” design resembles tranquil water, while the “Brushed Platinum” design conveys an industrial modern feel. Both designs come in an aluminum cover with a stainless steel laser-engraved logo.
The Gateway ID47 has ultraslim design and 14-inch HD widescreen LED display. An integrated DVD drive, comfortable keyboard and wrapped edgeless touchpad (which is more than 20 percent larger than the previous generation and with multi-gestures support).
The Gateway ID Series boasts High-Definition Dolby Home Theater v4 Audio, that delivers crisp and clear sound through its full-length mesh speaker bar. Everything fits into the ID47 Series’ slim chassis, that measures only 12.97(W) x 8.95(D) x 0.85-1.13(H) inches (ease and comfortable to carry and fits into a briefcase or book bag).
The notebooks are powered by second-generation Intel Core processors.
The Gateway NV Series balances exceptional performance and a large 15.6-inch HD widescreen LED-backlit display for cinematic widescreen viewing. The new Gateway NV Series models feature an elegant and modern design that is ideal for today’s style-conscious mobile PC users. The system features either a subtle geometric pattern or the digital wave pattern on the matte chassis lid with clean and uncluttered interior and a comfortable chiclet-style keyboard.
The new NV57 Series provides excellent mobile performance with second-generation Intel Core processors and Intel HD Graphics 3000 with 128MB of dedicated RAM. The new NV55 Series provides great performance while increasing battery-life with new AMD A-Series processors.
Both Gateway ID and NV lines features USB 3.0 port (charge USB devices when asleep, in hibernation mode, or when turned off) and USB 2.0. The notebooks are ideal for entertainment and productivity, providing all the ports customers need to connect to their devices. They feature HDMI 1080p output, (to deliver HD video and audio to an external source) and media card readers.
The notebook PCs come with integrated 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi Certified and integrated HD 1.3MP webcam for crisp and clear high-resolution images and online chats. In addition, PowerSmart Technology provides extra long battery uptime. The Gateway ID Series can provide up to 8 hours of battery life, while the Gateway NV Series provides up to 4 hours of battery life. The Gateway ID and Gateway NV Series notebooks feature MyBackup.
InCanada, the Gateway ID Series is also available with a large 15.6-inch HD widescreen LED backlit display. In addition, select models of the ID Series feature NVIDIA Optimus graphics technology, which intelligently balances the notebook’s use of dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GT graphics or integrated Intel HD graphics (ensures that battery life is extended for longer enjoyment).
The new Gateway ID and Gateway NV Series notebooks are ready to use right out of the box with Windows 7 Home Premium.
The Gateway ID notebooks are available at retailers now in the United States and Canada, at Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Prices starting at $699.99 USD and $799.00 CAD. The Gateway NV notebooks are available at retailers now in the United States at MSRPs starting at $529.99 USD and in Canada at $499.00 CAD.
