Does anyone think this is any good: Gateway mx6635b notebook, Intel Pentium processor 740, 100gb hard drive, 1024mb ram all for £699 at staples?

I bought this laptop from Staples on Sunday 13/11 and I have to say you're not going to find many laptops in the shops at that price with that spec. it is a high end laptop with a budget laptop price. i think it's a brilliant laptop. thin and light as well

it also uses the new DDR2 memory and you get a a gig of it to boot!

So why is the mx6635b Laptop not recognised by Staples on line? It doesn't even recognise any Gateway products.
Yet I saw Staples advertising the Gateway on TV last night.

Pretty poor show from Staples if you ask me.

I'd imagine Gateway are not too pleased either.

I know I only found out about the machine in a flyer in my local paper, I to went to Staples online, if you go onto the Gateway website you get a link to Staples.

Hey I can't find the details of the mx6635b on the website.

Can anyone provide me with a link?

I'm looking for a cool laptop for University, and this beast seems like just the ticket. Is Gateway a reliable company?

Just got one meself - Very happy with the build quality & I found that the HD is the Hitachi 5K100 & is 5400rpm not 4200 . Battery life seems very good too.
Not sure how I feel about the X-Black screen. Photos look really great, but there's a lot of reflection & in daylight it can seem a bit duller than other non-reflective screens.
Noise wise it's totally silent - I've not heard the fan or HD at all yet.

All in all a great laptop for the money...
