The Gateway W350A laptop was created in 2009 as an affordable computer that was made well but lacked some of the hardware that many users expected on mid-range laptops sold at the time. Compromise for the sake of affordability is not necessarily a bad thing though, and Gateway designed the W350A primarily for users that don't require an extremely powerful computer. The Gateway W350A has a sleek, attractive design and can accomplish most tasks that laptop users might want to do.


The Gateway W350A laptop has two color schemes to choose from: a red casing with a black keyboard or a black casing with a silver keyboard. The casing has a shiny polished finish that catches the eye and looks elegant. The laptop has a small footprint with only a 14-inch monitor and it weighs just nine pounds, making it lightweight and ideal for portability.


The W350A laptop is equipped with an AMD Turion 64 processor that runs at 2 Ghz and 2 GB of memory. This combination of processor and memory makes the laptop capable of fast Internet speeds and multitasking. The internal hard drive provides 240 GB of storage, which is adequate for a decent collection of programs, documents and multimedia files.

Media Capabilities

The W350A laptop is equipped with two USB ports allowing the connection of a mouse as well as a webcam or an external hard drive. The audio system is embedded, making it easy to plug in a set of external speakers or a microphone for online chat. The image display is crystal clear for enjoyable movie viewing. The internal modem makes connecting to the Internet easy with wireless technology.
