If you are of a certain age, you may remember the name of Gateway and its computers that were shipped in black and white cow print boxes. Gateway has returned as a line of inexpensive laptops and tablets at Walmart. But you won’t find any of the models on store shelves in their iconic cow packaging; the new Gateway laptops are only available online. This 14-inch Gateway laptop features a 10th Gen Intel Core i5 CPU and 16GB of RAM. You get a 256GB SSD for storage – average capacity for the price, but the amount of memory is double what is generally offered. And you get a Full HD screen (1,920 x 1,080 pixels), which is better than the 1,366 x 768 pixel panels found in other budget laptops. There is also a fingerprint reader for easy and secure logins. The green and black models are out of stock, but you can get it at a deep discount in blue or pink.
Take the older model, expand the screen from 14.1 to 15.6 inches and get a whopping $ 350 savings. If you’re working or learning from home and traveling less, the extra screen space outweighs the added weight and volume. Discount applies to all four color options.
