A few days ago we noted that the Gateway EC14D07u laptop was available for pre-order. Well, today it looks like at least one retailer has the laptop in stock. B&H is selling the Gateway EC14D for $629.99.
This laptop’s claim to fame is the fact that while at first glance it looks like yet another 11.6 inch laptop with an Intel CULV processor, this model also makes room for an 8x SuperMulti DVD burner.
The disc drives does make the notebook a little heavier than similar laptops from Gateway’s parent company Acer. The Acer Aspire Timeline 1810TZ, for example, weighs 3.1 pounds, while the Gateway EC14D tips the scales at 3.6 pounds.
While that’s heavy for an 11.6 inch laptop in this day and age, it’s still a lot lighter than most 14 or 15 inch laptops.
Rounding out the EC14D’s specs are a 1.3GHz Intel Pentium SU4100 CPU, 4GB of RAM, a 320GB hard drive, 11.6 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display, Intel GMA 4500MHD grpahics, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, and Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit.
