Gateway has been known for their budget laptops and now they’ve added two new models in their Gateway ID line, which are powered the Core i3 and Core i5 processors, pack decent specs and but still stick to the budget price range of the Gateway series.
The two Gateway ID models are powered by the NVidia Optimus for their graphics and they’re equipped with a touchpad that glows softly. The two models are namely ID49 and ID59 which has a screen size of 14-inch (1266 x 768) and a 15.6-inch (1366 x 768) respectively.
