Editors Didn't Like

  • Touch pad takes getting used to; fixed-in-place battery; too much bloatware
  • Plastic click touchpad needs a do-over, Battery is not removable
  • Cluttered software package, Highly reflective screen covering
  • The Gateway ID47H02u lacks Bluetooth and dedicated graphics, and plenty of other 13- and 14-inch competitors offer similar features for a similar price
