Below the touchpad are the indicator lights for, caps lock, scroll lock, Number lock, and hard drive. The flex seems to be worse towards the edges of the keyboard. According to comparison results the T with integrated graphics in the Gateway performed just slightly worse than the Toshiba Tecra M6 with a 1. I think the screen looks good, especially next to my IBM T41, but it does have a stuck pixel on the right side in the middle. The speakers are typical notebook speakers:

Vista seems like an improvement over XP to me, although I am not going to go through the trouble of installing it on my own computer anytime soon.

After I use it more and learn more about its features I am sure more disparities between the 2 will emerge. The other stuff McAffee, Napster, BigFix, Etc was taking up too many system resources and slowing things down, especially during start up, so Gareway removed them manually without doing the clean install.
The Gateway MT is a budget notebook that was recently on sale at best buy and Circuit City in conjunction with the release of Vista. There is also a purple light that shines on the front of yateway notebook when charging, it switches to blue when charging is complete and blinks red when the battery is low.
Before removing these programs, the notebook was almost unbearably slow, and I was at first worrying I made a mistake and contemplated returning it to Circuit City. The flex seems to be worse towards the edges of the keyboard. I guess one of the upsides gatrway a rpm drive is that the notebook stays quiet and cool.
Not only is it faster then my ThinkPad, it can last longer away from the plug as well. If you turn down the screen brightness and make a few other tweaks, surely you could squeeze out some more time.

I like the touchpad, but would recommend setting the sensitivity towards the lighter end of the spectrum, it comes from the factory requiring a firm touch to get it working. There are shortcuts on the keyboard that you can use with the function button, like adjusting mf3705, screen brightness, CD controls, etc.
Gateway MT keyboard view view large image. If you use a mouse and are right handed, this may be an issue for you. The underside of the machine gets warm, but not to the point where I felt any discomfort. I purchased this Gateway after a long search for a budget laptop with decent performance to give as a gift. Pretty standard stuff, there are no extra volume or other media control buttons like on some other consumer notebooks out there.
I think that overall I got a good deal on the laptop. Vista Home Premium looks cool and is easy to use. If keyboard flex is a problem for you, then do not buy this notebook. The MT comes with an Websites load very quickly, and there is virtually no lag when navigating the internet or between programs that are already running. As I stated tateway, the keyboard has a good amount of flex.
They do feel sturdy though.
So far I am pretty impressed with the performance of this notebook. Balanced mode is basically medium settings across the board. The MT can also be upgraded with a faster hard drive and maybe another gig of RAM if desired down the road, but I feel that it has exceeded my expectations and is quite quick as delivered.
I would say it is an improvement over XP, although nothing revolutionary for my uses. I think the screen looks good, especially next to my IBM T41, but it does have a stuck pixel on the right side in the middle.

Initially booting up and shutting down are a little long, and programs pause when loading, but mtt3705 horrible- I was actually expecting worse. I am very impressed with the battery life of this system. The exhaust vent is on the left side of the notebook.
