In our Gateway Ultra Slim Notebook review, we liked its solid performance, color design and decent speakers. Our 14-inch test model had the same hardware CPU/RAM chipset as the 15-inch laptop in this deal.
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.
Despite its slim design, the Gateway Ultra Slim Notebook has a decent amount of ports. It's equipped 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 on board.
Weighing in at 4.1 pounds, and 14.8 x 9.6 x 0.8 inches, the Gateway Ultra Slim is more portable than competing 15-inch laptops. 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).
Overall, the Gateway Ultra Slim Notebook is worth considering if you want a cheaply priced laptop with good performance.
