You get a good, but not great processor and a healthy serving of memory. The LCD lid is the color of red wine with a metallic racing stripe down the middle. Build quality seems solid though the bottom of the case was not perfectly level, causing the front right corner to drop a fraction when pressure was put on it, which in turn, caused the display to shake for a moment.
The versatility of the laptop is extended by a nice selection of external ports. The system does not have external SATA. Inside the notebooks users will see a full-sized keyboard without a numberpad and a trackpad surrounded by more of the glossy plastic. The trackpad is actually rather smaller thanks to the plastic surrounding it and the relatively huge buttons.
Along the right side of the keyboard is a touch-sensitive panel with sound and media controls. The left side has the same glossy space, but only has the power button there.
It would be nice to see the display be able to get a bit brighter as well, especially considering that the MDu has media ambitions. Another issue is that gloss, which will cause glare under certain lighting conditions.

This is helped out by the use of integrated graphics, but testing revealed the MDu to have a battery life of about five hours, excellent for a notebook this size and price.
It has all the features that people buying at a big box retailer will be looking for, plus throws in the added perks of a display and an attractive exterior.

Shop The Gateway MDu is part of a new affordable notebook line that shares most of its components with the high-style MC series. This notebook offers many of the same features as its more expensive brother; like the touch-sensitive hidden multimedia keys, classy styling, and excellent build quality. To lower the cost Gateway removed some features that not everyone needed, like the leather palmrest, all-glass display, and backlit keyboard. Does this new notebook still impress us as much as the MCu? Read our review to find out. The only visible queues that someone familiar with both models would notice is the lack of quick launch program buttons on the left side of the keyboard, no leather palmrest, lack of backlit keyboard, and missing all-glass display.
