Pros: Fast, great battery life, Turbo boost, HD 3000

Cons: Not overclockable of course

Great mobile processor, low power consumption, super fast for everything I throw at it! Idles at 42* C, under OCCT it never went above 80*C over 12 hours. Supports RAM speeds of up to DDR3 1866mhz! The HD 3000 is capable of running a lot more than I ever thought it would (Skyrim for example-High textures, 16x Filtering, 2x SMAA, High decals). Idles at 800mhz when not in use so it saves tons of battery, I generally get 5 hours light use out of the Gateway on the balanced power scheme.Capable of hitting 3Ghz on a single core, 2.8Ghz dual core with the Turbo boost tech.
