Gateway has added one-touch access to social networking sites such as Facebook, YouTube and Twitter on its new NV and ID series laptops. The move backs a trend among mobile PC makers to remove buttons from their business-class laptops.
The ID47 series laptops have an edge-to-edge 14-inch screen, which allows them to use a 13.3-inch chassis. Weights start at 4.6 pounds (2.08 kilograms) and the PCs offer up to eight hours of battery life, 4 GB to 8 GB of memory, and up to 750 GB of hard drive storage.
