Gateway's Ultra Slim Notebook is one of the best budget laptops you can get. It features a 15.6-inch 1080p display, 1.0-GHz Core i5-1035G1 quad-core CPU, 16GB of RAM, and 256GB SSD.
As detailed in our Gateway Ultra Slim Notebook review, we like this PC for its solid performance, colorful design and decent speakers. In one test, we launched 40 Google Chrome tabs and five 1080p YouTube videos simultaneously. There were no signs of slowdown in the laptop's task-handling.
In our lab's Geekbench 4.3 overall performance test, the Gateway 14.1-inch Ultra Slim Notebook scored 15,785. It beat the category average for mainstream laptops ( 15,108) and its competitors. It wiped the floor with the Acer Aspire 5 (12,109) which houses the same Core i5-1035G1 CPU.
For a slender laptop, the Gateway Ultra Slim Notebook supplies you with an array of ports. You get with two USB Type-A ports, a USB Type-C port, an HDMI port and a headphone jack. There's also a microSD card reader and security lock slot built-in.
With a weight of 4.1 pounds, and measuring 14.8 x 9.6 x 0.8 inches, the Gateway Ultra Slim is more portable its competitors. It's lighter than the Dell XPS 15 (4.5-pounds, 13.6 x 9.1 x 0.7-inches) and HP Spectre x360 (4.5 pounds, 14.2 x 9.8 x 0.8 inches).
If you're short on cash, the Gateway Ultra Slim Notebook is a budget-friendly choice.
