Gateway ID47 14" laptop boasts thin screen, thin bezel panel

By on July 7, 2011, 1:00 PM

Gateway has just updated their ID notebook lineup with a new model that manages to squeeze 14-inch display into the same chassis that normally houses a 13.3-inch screen. The ID47 uses a brand new display technology from LG, dubbed Shuriken, that requires less bezel (8mm instead of 12mm) and less thickness to function. The result is an edge-to-edge display that looks extremely sleek and clean, though unfortunately the resolution is limited to 1366 x 768.

The $700 configuration comes with an Intel Core i5-2410M processor, 4GB of DDR3 RAM, integrated HD 3000 graphics, and a 500GB 5,400rpm drive, while an extra $100 gets you an Nvidia GeForce GT 540M discrete GPU with Optimus. Both include a 6-cell battery for 8 hours of endurance, an optical drive, two USB 2.0 ports, one USB 3.0, and HDMI-out.

The Gateway NV line is also getting an update with a budget 15.6-inch model, the NV55, which comes in at $629.99 and packs AMD’s new Llano quad-core A8-3500M APU with Radeon HD 6620G graphics. There's also 6GB of RAM, a 640GB hard drive, an HDMI output and a USB 3.0 port, along with hot keys especially designed for social networking use. A Canada-bound NV57 variant comes with an Intel Core i3-2310M processor and integrated HD 3000 graphics.
