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.

  1. Does anyone know where I can purchsae one? I know it’s an old model, but I would really love to purchase one as a present for someone!

  2. Brad this great netbook alternative is available in Canada at FUTURE SHOP FOR $499 CAD, so this US price is a rip off…

  3. “thin and light” – I always have to smile when I read this and then look at the pictures and read the specs 🙂

    Even better are the so-called “ultra-lights”, which are still thick and 3+ pounds…

    Yeah, definitely better than the classic 15 inch bricks which are still called “laptops” (though most people wouldn’t want to balance these monsters on their laps for a longer time ;), but still the words thin, light or ultra-light are somehow riduculous.

    The Vaio X with about 700g for 11.6″ is maybe the only notebook which really deserves to be called thin and light.
