Gateway EC14D07u Ultraportable Notebook is…highly portable

Netbooks have had a nice effect on portable computer manufacturers. They’re putting out newer designs up and down their product lines which sport energy efficient hardware and slimmer form factors which people that have to lug their machines around are quite happy about.

Gateway’s EC14D07u ultraportable notebook takes the trend towards small to heart by using a low-voltage processor and 11.6″ display yet, somehow, manages to slot in an optical drive. TweakTown has the review:

The Gateway EC14D07u is a rarity in the ultraportable world today in that Gateway crams an optical drive into the machine. The drive is a DVD player and can burn both CDs and DVDs if needed as well. Typically, you don’t get an optical drive in this class and this is what makes the Gateway EC14D07u really stand out in a crowded market.

Of course its wireless N connection could transfer files over a network faster than you can read from a DVD but it’s still a nice feature to have.
