If you're looking for a super-slim, ultra-compact portable that you can easily slip inside your briefcase or handbag and carry around like a notepad, you've come to the wrong place. If, however, you want a beefy, full-featured mobile computer that might well blow the doors off your stay-at-home PC, the Gateway M675X Notebook may be just the ticket. Power-packed and beautifully equipped, the Gateway M675X is one of Gateway's most capable notebooks to date and perfectly suited to those who need a state-of-the-art desktop replacement.

Measuring 15.75 by 10.63 by 1.52 inches and tipping the scales at 8.8 pounds, the Gateway M675X is clearly larger than the norm yet not nearly as bulky as some competing desktop replacements. Yet it's just as potent. Driven by a high-end 3.0 GHz Intel Pentium 4 processor with Hyper-Threading Technology for more efficient CPU usage, 512 MB DDR SDRAM memory and an ATI Mobility Radeon 9600 8x AGP graphics accelerator with 64 MB of dedicated DDR video memory, the system delivers ample power for even the most complex computing situations. Extremely sophisticated state-of-the-art 3-D computer games may exhibit slight frame rate issues, but not so much that they aren't playable. Using the Gateway M675X, you'll certainly never need to squint. Equipped with a massive 17.1-inch viewing screen -- one of the biggest in the business -- the system displays its huge images in resolutions up to a crystal clear 1440 by 900 resolution. The unit features several other hardware perks, including a modular DVD--R/-RW/CD-RW optical drive though which you can play and burn audio CDs, backup data to long-lasting digital media, play the latest Hollywood blockbusters and transfer your home movies to DVD. Gateway has also included an accommodating 60 GB hard drive to give you plenty of room for your applications, files and music or video library.

Connectivity is offered in a variety of forms, including a quartet of high-speed USB 2.0 ports for fast interaction with external devices such as digital cameras and scanners, an IEEE 1394 FireWire port (typically used for downloading data from digital camcorders), SPDIF ins and outs for high-quality audio, and much more. Communication options include an integrated 802.11g wireless networking card for those times when you can't plug in, an ultra-fast 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet LAN port for stunningly fast networking and Internet access, and a standard 56K dial-up modem. A full-size keyboard with a convenient EZ-PAD pointing device and several handy one-touch multimedia controls complete the hardware picture. Bundled software includes Microsoft's Windows XP Home Edition and Microsoft Works 7.0. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars The 2 month computer.
It's a nice computer, great specs, but when the power supply
failed it became an expensive doorstop.
My M675 worked fine for two months when the power supply was
bathed in the cold winter air at floor level, but when spring
arrived the power supply overheated and failed.
I plugged in the second power supply I received with the
port replicator. It failed after 20 minutes.
Gateway customer support was minimally helpful. They sent me
a new power supply ( I had to give them a credit card number ???). I attached the port replicator (a difficult feat)
and used the power jack on the replicator (to see if the jack
on the computer was the problem). The 3rd power supply
failed after 10 minutes. The power supply say 150 watts
maximum on its case. The computer says 150 watts of power
on its case, so the power supply is operating at its maximum
capacity, and apparently beyond. After calling customer
support again I was told the power jack was the problem and
I would have to send the computer to Solectron for repair,
although I had told the technician the computer was working
without any problems. Since I feel the problem is an inadequate
power supply, I am reluctant to commit my unblemished computer
to the mirkly uncertanties of Solectron, and I am left to find
a dependable power supply on my own.

5-0 out of 5 stars Once skeptical, now a believer
I've always used HP notebooks and had what I considered "typical" glitches (periodic crashes, screen freezing, network connections being dropped). I started researching the M675 because Money Magazine reviewed it highly and TechEdge gave it Editor's Choice. I've never used a Gateway and always considered their products more consumer focused, not everyday workhorses. I've had this machine for 2 months and it has made me a believer. I've never since experienced the glitches from before and it truly has more power than my new desktop. Unlike the other reviewers, any questions I've had were quickly taken care of on their live chat or in a Gateway store. I give their service a 5-star as well as the product.
What's hot:
-full size keyboard WITH a 10-key and real function keys
-scroll wheel below the touchpad for quickly navigating web pages
-ports out the ears: 4 USB (2 in back, 1 on each side), firewire & s-video
-hot keys for mail, web, and to switch on/off wireless-g
-awesome screen for watching DVD's
What's not:
-It's a beast to carry. Don't plan on much traveling unless you have a sherpa
-The fan is noisy, when it runs
-The touchpad gets bumped during typing and skips the cursor (or it could be my oversized hands)

Bottom-line, the reviewers who do this for a living are right, this is a choice system, and Gateway backs it up with good service.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good system, but Customer Service.....
I agree with the previous reviewer that Gateway customer service is lacking. In my case, I ordered the PC from the Gateway website with their "order by 12/19 to receive by 12/24" which was missing the fine print that the shipping guarantee didn't apply to desktops or notebooks. I contacted Gateway on 12/24 when the PC didn't arrive and was notified that the guarantee didn't apply and they were sorry. Later I tracked my shippment and it was direct shipped from Singapore and I received it on 1/2.

After I got it, I will say that it is a very impressive system, almost an equal to my HP desktop. Not everything works well on a widescreen monitor, but with a little tweaking everything will work. The 54g built in wireless works perfectly with my Linksys network and there is an "on/off" button for the radio if you are using batteries and don't need it. My only complaint with the PC is the short battery time and lack of location to add a second battery. Considering that this stays plugged in 99% of the time it isn't a huge issue, but I like to have options.

Even though I like the system, I will think twice before buying a PC from Gateway again. ... Read more
