Gateway’s latest entry into the crowded gaming notebook market, the $1,999 P-172X FX [17" TFT, 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo T8300, 4GB DDR2 RAM, 2x160GB hard drives, 512MB nVidia 8800M GTS, Vista Home Premium] is significantly cheaper than its big brother, the $2,999 Gateway P-171XL FX. Even after the $1,000 price cut, the P-172X FX is still a well-optioned machine, delivering performance that’s on par with that of much more expensive portable gamers on the market.
..The Gateway P-172X FX is a steal. If you want a gaming notebook with serious performance and you don’t want to spend a ton of money to get it, we highly recommend this system.
