Gateway just announced the NV series of laptops that feature both AMD and Intel processors, so you’ve really got a choice to make there. When it comes to size you can get either 15.6” or 17.3” displays. The main feature is a social media button that gives you direct access to things like Facebook, YouTube and Flickr. There’s a couple different configurations available with options like Blu-Ray drive and HD Webcam with prices staring at $529.99.
The first model in the new series is available now – it is the Gateway NV59C09u, with a 15.6-inch HD Ultrabright LCD display, Blu-ray drive, Intel Core i3 processor and an integrated HD webcam for only $799.99.
