  1. IRVINE, Calif., May 13, 2010 - Gateway today debuted its
    newly-updated Gateway NV Series of notebooks with new models featuring
    the latest technology to boost productivity, first-rate cinematic
    entertainment and seamless social networking capabilities.
    The Gateway NV line features models in two different sizes - the NV5
    Series with a 15.6-inch display and the NV7 Series with a 17.3-inch
    display. All models feature a High Definition Ultrabright LCD widescreen
    display with resolutions that deliver vivid lifelike details, vibrant
    color and superior image quality.

    The first model in the new series is available now - it is the Gateway
    NV59C09u, with a 15.6-inch HD Ultrabright LCD display, Blu-ray drive,
    Intel Core i3 processor and an integrated HD webcam for only $799.99.
    Additional models in the line will be available at retailers nationwide
    over the coming weeks.

    The new Gateway NV Series includes models ranging from all-around
    performance for students and families on a budget, to systems bursting
    with the latest technology for video editing and casual gaming. In all
    cases, the new Gateway NV Series models are well-equipped to deliver
    excellent performance with processors from Intel or AMD.
    "Mobile entertainment means something entirely different today than it
    did just a few short years ago -- more often it comes in the form of
    video clips, photos and updates on friends' and fan pages by using
    popular social networking sites and tools," said John Nguyen, senior
    product marketing manager for Gateway notebooks and netbooks. "The
    Gateway NV Series notebook line is well-equipped to let customers have
    quick access to their entertainment and social networks with easy-to-use
    technology, such as the latest Wifi and HD webcam."

    Ready for Entertainment, Social Networking
    The Gateway NV Series features an integrated "social networking" button
    that allows customers to access their social networks, including
    Facebook, YouTube and Flickr, with a single touch of a button. With it,
    customers can see real-time network updates on their status feed, as
    well as provide updates to their own sites with information, images and
    video.

    The Gateway NV Series' High Definition LED-backlit TFT Widescreen
    displays deliver compelling lifelike video with vibrant images that are
    crisp and detailed. The NV5 15.6-inch display models boast a 1366x768
    resolution, while the Gateway NV7 Series will impress viewers with its
    image-enhancing 1600x900 resolution. Both provide a true cinematic
    viewing experience thanks to their 16:9 aspect ratio that is perfect for
    HD movies and video. Support for high definition audio and two built-in
    stereo speakers further enhance the overall experience. Also, the HDMI
    port lets customers use a convenient, single cable connection to deliver
    crisp high-quality visuals and high-fidelity audio to a home theater or
    external LCD.

    Select models in the new Gateway NV Series feature extras for even more
    entertainment capabilities. Blu-ray video players are featured on select
    models in both the NV5 and NV7 Series lines for movie-viewing in
    incredible detail, paired with DVD and CD recording capability. Also,
    the Gateway NV7 Series will feature models with ATI Mobility Radeon HD
    graphics for enhanced graphics capabilities when viewing the latest PC
    games.

    To further customers' ability to have fun and stay in touch with their
    social networks, the Gateway NV Series comes with 802.11b/g/n WiFi
    Certified connectivity. The integrated High-definition webcam allows web
    chats and video emails in incredible clarity thanks to its 1280x1024
    resolution. Also, Gigabit Ethernet LAN connectivity ensures a fast wired
    online connection.

    Latest Technologies, Including Easy-to-Access MyBackup
    The Gateway NV line delivers the latest in technology and features,
    starting with reliable processing technology including Intel Core i3 and
    Core i5 processors as well as AMD Athlon and AMD Turion processors. The
    notebooks have up to 4GB of DDR3 memory that is upgradeable to 8GB, so
    performance is further promoted. The notebooks also feature media card
    readers that accept popular media cards (Secure Digital, Multimedia
    Card, Memory Stick, Memory Stick Pro and xD) as well as large-capacity
    hard drives ranging from 320GB to 640GB of capacity,(1) so customers
    will be able to easily and quickly access, download, store and share
    their digital media content.

    To protect these media files, photos and video while on the go, the
    Gateway NV Series includes MyBackup functionality that gives customers a
    way to quickly and easily back-up all important files. Easily accessible
    with the integrated software, customers can conveniently back up files
    to another location such as a USB drive, external hard disk drive, or
    another hard drive partition. The notebook line is incredibly easy to
    use with a multi-gesture touchpad, touchpad lock, and dedicated numeric
    keypad.

    Ergonomics Meet Stylish Elegant Design
    Designed with special attention to ergonomics, the Gateway NV line has a
    slim and sleek profile that is easy to enjoy and transport. The
    glossy-black interior houses a comfortable palm rest and keyboard
    surround. The intuitively recessed touchpad provides the right amount of
    feedback and control for customers' web-browsing, photo-editing and
    extended typing. The multi-gesture touchpad further enhances control,
    allowing customers to scroll through documents, pinch to zoom in and
    out, as well as rotate and flip photos and other media files. The wide
    size of the notebooks provides room for an ample keyboard and dedicated
    numeric keypad.

    Ideal for today's style-conscious mobile PC users, the new Gateway NV
    Series models feature an elegant and modern design that is crisp and
    uncluttered. The systems feature a subtle wave pattern on the matte
    chassis lid. Plus, the combination of matte and glossy finishes create a
    contemporary blend of contrasts.

    Gateway NV Series Availability, Price and Configuration
    The well-equipped NV Series will be available in a variety of
    configurations to meet a range of budgets at manufacturer's suggested
    retail prices starting at $529.99. The first model to be available will
