Gateway’s EC14D series notebook has an 11.6 inch display and Intel CULV processor — which does absolutely nothing to set it apart from a dozen similar models from Asus, Acer, Dell, HP, and Lenovo. But here’s one thing that does set it apart: This laptop has a built in DVD burner.

The Gateway EC14D07U went on sale in the US earlier this month. And now you can pick one up in Canada, although north of the border they like to call it the Gateway EC14D01h. And much to my surprise, it turns out the laptop is actually cheaper in Canada than the US. Canadians can pick one up for $579.99 CAD (about $571 US), while it sells for about $630 in the States.

The specs appear to be the same wherever you purchase the EC14D. It has a 1.3GHz Intel Pentium SU4100 dual core processor, Intel GMA 4500MHD graphics, an 11.6 inch., 1366 x 768 pixel display, 4GB of RAM, a 320G hard drive, and an 8X DVD Super-Multi drive. It sports 802.11b/g/n WiFi, a 6 cell, 5600mAh battery, HDMI output, a multitouch touchpad, and runs Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.
