Product Description

Amazon.com

Featuring embedded wireless support, reduced power consumption and enough fast-access Level 2 cache to noticeably accelerate your day-to-day multitasking, Intel's innovative Centrino technology is the sophisticated centerpiece of Gateway's 200Xa Notebook PC. A fast and capable machine that houses an impressive number of upscale amenities in its miniscule 12.4 by 10.2 by .94-inch, 4.35 pounds frame, the Gateway 200Xa will appeal to anyone prioritizes portability yet needs a full-service notebook.

Driven by a 1.5 GHz Pentium M processor incorporating Centrino technology, a perfectly adequate 512 MB of main memory and an integrated Intel Extreme Graphics 2 graphics chipset with shared (not dedicated) video memory, the Gateway 200Xa isn't ready for high-end 3-D animation or taxing 3-D games but will make quick work of most common desktop applications. Furthermore, Gateway hasn't allowed the system's subcompact frame to limit data handling options, equipping it with a midsize 40 GB hard disk and a convenient DVD/CD-RW drive through which you can burn and play audio CDs, archive data and enjoy the latest Hollywood blockbusters. In its stock configuration, DVD burning is not supported.

The unit features an impressively generous 14.1-inch XGA TFT active matrix display screen (1024 by 768 resolution) and stereo speakers. User controls include a full-size keyboard and EZ Pad pointing device. Other helpful amenities include two high-speed USB 2.0 ports for external devices such as scanners and optical drives, one IEEE 1394 "FireWire" port (commonly used for fast data transfer to and from digital camcorders), an S-Video port for feeding your display to a TV and an S/PDIF high-fidelity digital audio output. When you need to communicate, you can do so via high-speed LAN, low-speed modem or through the integrated 802.11b Wireless Networking card.

Your Gateway 200 Series will ship with pre-installed copies of Windows XP Home Edition and Microsoft Works 7.0.

The scrolling wheel is pretty small so it is slow, but if the finger is rubbed against the right corner of the mouse pad then it moves much faster.

The 1.5GHz 200X looks nice inside and out and is amazingly thin and light.

This computer is spectacular, it looks great and also runs well. It is very small, but the keyboard is of usable size and has a good feel to it (my old gateway notebook definitely had a bit of a flimsy feel to it).
A few things:
1) GET THE HIGH CAPACITY BATTERY. The stock battery is awful, but such is life. Don't order it from gateway though, check out other places, such as a particular online warehouse with a three letter name. I got mine for almost 1/2 the price Gateway was charging there, and the service was a lot better.
2) The speakers suck too. The computer is less than 1" think. What do you expect? They're finally beginning to come out with wi-fi products that will use your connection to stream music from your computer to your stereo. I can't wait to get my hands on one, until then, plug it into to your stereo or use headphones.
3) Adding more RAM is highly recommended. I added an additional 512MB that I got from a well-known auction site for $50. The difference is immediately noticable; XP devours RAM.
4) Download iTunes. Seriously, even if you don't want to download music from them, it has to be the most user-friendly (not to mention free and visually pleasing) music library managment software on the planet.
5) STAY UPDATED. Every time you read about an attack, its because people don't update their OS, antivirus, and firewall software/hardware. It takes a few seconds every few weeks, and any decent company will alert you to the updates automatically. This will also eliminate 99% of problems people may experience with their wi-fi connections; the software updates usually fix glitches that weren't anticipated when the product was manufactured (I use a D-Link DI-624 router, and it's been phenomenal).

Verified Purchase
I wanted a sleek looking little laptop with a decent size screen and 512mb of ram... and I got all that and more! It does everything I need, never hiccups, it's lightweight... I'm really glad I bought it. It's beauty is not only skin deep, have a look at the specs :) It's great. The only complaint... buy a backup battery... the standard one runs out so quickly.

Post script... June 12th, 2006 (original review was made circa August of 2004 - thank goodness Amazon lets you edit reviews!): I would NOT recommd this machine AT ALL. Exactly 12 months later, a week after the Gateway warranty expired the CD drive went kaput. Three or four months later, the fan started screwing up. Also, the machine doesn't wear well. What once looked sleek and sexy, looked plasticy and cheap after a year of wear. My friend's Mac looks just as fabulous as it did the day he opened it. So guess what? I bought a Mac. Don't waste your money with this cheap Gateway. You certainly get exactly what you pay for!!!

The 200X has an ultramodern design -- sleek silver case, cool blue keyboard all in a slim lightweight package. Plus is has insides to back it up -- a quick 1.5Ghz Pentium M, DVD drive, 14.1-inch screen and built-in wireless. There are three buttons above the keyboard you can program to launch your favorite applications and a fourth button shines with a blue light when the integrated wireless is activated. Very nice. It also has an extremely comfortable keyboard.
The only bad news was the short battery life. Buy the optional, high-capacity battery. Armed with the new battery, the Gateway 200X lasted nearly 4 hours. With enough juice, this is a great notebook. Easily more for the money than any of the other systems I've looked at in this price range.

I'm going to cover what hasn't already been written about. So, here are things that make this laptop stand-out or stink-up.

Pros:
- The Centrino Chip clocks at 1.5MHz; I have heard that this translates to a P4 2.5MHz processor. This part is confusing; just know that games and applications work fast.
- Screen checks in at 14.1" which is a good working size - slightly more to carry than those 12" screens, but much more useable and it leaves room in the chassis for a full-sized keyboard.
- Comes with internal DVD/CDRW which I find really cool (as opposed to external, which would be a pain to carry).
- AC adaptor is pretty cool. It's made so you can wrap the cord around it neatly when you're not using it, and then there is a little snap thing on the plug so the cord doesn't get unraveled.
- Lots of useful external ports (2 usb's, firewire, ethernet, modem, PCMCIA slot, video out, S-video out, etc). I especially like the optical out, which I don't use, but I still like it being there.
- Wireless works well. Go Centrino technology!
- Comes with many programs inside (Windows XP, MS Works, Picture It!, Jukebox, etc)
- The battery looks cool. If you take it out, there are some little led lights and a button you press that shows how much battery life is left.
- This is one of the sleekest designs and coolest looking notebooks around. If you want to stand out from all those other black books in the airport or commuter train, you won't go wrong with the 200.
- It comes with a comprehensive hard-copy user manual (yes, printed on real paper -- not a CD or web address).
- The battery is upgradeable.
Cons:
- Yes, battery life and speakers suck. Use the high-capacity battery and a pair of headphones.
