Gateway Creator Series 15.6" FHD Performance Notebook, AMD Ryzen 5 4600H, NVIDIA 1650 GTX, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD, Xbox Game Pass for PC, HD Webcam, Cortana, Windows 10 Home, Google Classroom Compatible
I absolutely love this laptop. It is great for doing work. It is perfect size and has a very sleek design. I love the fact that it has the number keys on the right hand side like a normal keyboard. I dont see very many laptops with that. The computer its self is pretty fast and the graphics are nice and crisp. Setup was a breeze! I was able to use voice commands and set it up within 5 minutes. You can get an Xbox game pass for $1 which is pretty cool as well and worth the money. Overally it is a very nice laptop and I would recommend 100%
I Love This Laptop!
This laptop is sleek, lightweight, and easy to set up right out of the box as it guides you through the set up right when you turn it on the first time. It does not come with a cd or manual,, but it does provide a website and phone number contact. I love that it looks very clean, the display has a very thin black outline and the resolution is super sharp. The keys have a very soft touch. One cool feature is that the keyboard has backlighting that can be set to any color you like or it can just go through colors automatically. You can adjust the amount of the backlight or turn it off. I love this feature. Sets it apart from all other laptops I've owned. Computing speed is good, but i don't have much on it yet, so we'll see about that. It is very quiet, unlike my other laptop that you can hear the hard drive and fan spinning at times. The only critique I have is that I work from home and do a lot of number entry by touch. The keyboard has the 0 right under the 2, so I am not able to do 10 key by touch with it, but I use a wireless desktop keyboard, so that is not an issue for me, but thought I'd mention it in case it's important to you. So over all I love it and would absolutely recommend it to anyone.
I want one!
The intended purpose of this laptop is a gift for my college student because the one here got for high school graduation is just too slow and he's always borrowing mine. Of course we got it out and set everything up. I guess I didn't notice the backlit keyboard in the description. It's BLUE! I LOVE IT! It took less than 5 minutes to set up and it's lightning fast. Plus it comes with an Xbox Game Pass subscription. Bonus for my gamer. I want to keep it for myself, but I know my son is going to absolutely love this.
Sleek and fast
I grew up using gateway computers so to see them back makes me happy. This gateway laptop came very well packaged and secure. It was very easy to set up and begin use. It has cortana which is a voice activate service that you can speak to the computer or it can speak to you. The screen is the perfect size and the keyboard lights up. That is very helpful for when you using it in not the best lighting. It has plenty of hdmi and USB ports that there is no issue. It is very lightweight so holding it or carrying it for long periods of tine is not a problem! Overall I love this laptop and glad to see gateway back!
Perfect laptop for gaming!
The Gateway Creator Series 15.6" Performance Notebook is awesome! There are so many cool things about it. I am a gamer and I immediately installed Steam and downloaded my most played games. My games run with no issues and I can even host local when playing with other gamers online (Left 4 Dead 2, Team Fortress 2, Portal 2, etc). The fully customizable keyboard works really well - I have it set to continue changing through the colors. I enjoy gaming at night after the kids go to bed and it makes it so much easier to find the keys when playing. I LOVE that the power cord insert is located in the back of the laptop as previous experience, especially with children, means a snapped off power cord from the side. My husband still can't wait to get his hands on this laptop so he can play Rainbow Six Siege because of the gaming specs. The video card in this laptop is better than any other computer in our house! - considering we have 2 fully customized gaming pcs, and several laptops, that is amazing. The quality of the video is so clear and I can play on highest settings depending on the game. One oddity I found was that the web cam is located on the bottom of the screen instead of the top so it took some getting used to for video-conferencing but no big deal. The sound quality is also great. The volume adjustment is perfect. On my old laptop, the highest possible setting, it was hard to hear anything with the slightest noise in the background. Again, not the case here. I've adjusted it several times when streaming videos, gaming or working and had no problems. I also love how secure this laptop feels. I'm used to a plasticky-feel and this thing is nothing like that. It is sturdy and I feel comfortable transporting it from room to room without concern. Given the price on this, I would definitely recommend to any gamer looking to buy a new one. I promise you'll love the video quality!
I love love it! I always want a laptop that is reliable when it comes to performance

Multitask, playing games is a plus too! The size and weight is

I highly recommend it, it is such a great investment!

This is a great product
This is a great notebook. It is very easy to set up. You can use your voice to set it up. You can set it up for games. This is great for gamers. The sound is awesome to hear everything. It works well with. The internet we have. No lagging at all. It also comes with windows 10. It's great for office work or school work and great for just personal use. A gateway was my first computer. And this one will not disappoint.
Worth It - Surprising Performance
I figured this would be a cut down model in some way or another, so far that's not the case. The following is true as it relates to this model: -The keyboard backlight IS present in this model (online pics make it look like it isn't). You can adjust the color of the backlight, too, with a wide array of colors, timings, and light intensities. -The ram IS upgradeable on this model (3200mhz DDR4). Note there is a warranty sticker over one of the screw holes. -Performance is available and you can switch between basically browsing mode and gaming mode. Couple that with changing power option to high power and you're looking great. -There is very little bloatware on this model, very surprising. -The Ryzen5 is not cut down or slowed in any way - 3.0ghz right out of the box. -I'm already gaming at 1080p and games that support 120hz refresh have noted it as available with this model. This was great at $599. Consider you will add another stick of ram for about $30 and another drive (up to $100), and your cost of entry isn't terrible all things considered. So far so good!
Amazing laptop for the price!
I just got this on sale for 599 and it's insane how good it is. I highly recommend it! I'm using it for office work and light gaming. If you can get it on sale, do it! It's probably a better build quality than the cheaper gaming laptops from Dell/HP/Lenovo as it's a Tongfang chassis.
This notebook has a lot of great features. The audio (it also has thx) is very clear and the graphics are amazing. This laptop has two modes, Office and Gaming and allows for a seamless switch at the touch of a button. The keyboard is backlit and there are tons of different colors to select, you can also set it to continuously change colors. There are vents on all four sides for better air flow and you have the option of increasing the fan speed. This notebook is lightweight and thin so it can easily travel. I have had a movie streaming while running a first person shooter without a drop in the frame rate. I have also been able to multi task by being in a virtual meeting while emailing and searching the web with no issues. The battery fully charged shows a run time of 5 hours. This notebook is a great multipurpose tool and entertainment device all in one. The downside for me was that this laptop does not have a disk drive.
5 stars for unbeatable price to performance.
I was a bit hesitant at first when I saw "Gateway", but this laptop is amazing. Aluminum chassis, 120hz IPS screen, dGPU w/4gb of VRAM, 2 M.2 NVMe ssd slots, 2 RAM slots with 3200mhz RAM in dual channel that Ryzen CPU's love, and I hit the $599 sale. There are other brands like XMG using the same basic set-up, just some better options but at much higher price. Can't wait to add the 2x8gb kit of G.Skill and more storage. If this was branded Asus or MSI the only difference would be $200 on the pricetag.
great gaming/every day desktop replacement
this laptop is great with only a few minor things for improvement
the ryzen 5 works great in here with both the 1650 on game mode or the vega 8 on office mode neither one run the fans too loud i have tested this on many games in the med to high settings destiny 2/warframe/csgo/ fortnite etc and all run between 60fps to 150+fps the game pass is free for 3 months then $5 a month after i already owned so not a big deal its has a nvme 256gb hard drive with expansion for 1 more i added a 1tb one off newegg the only minor issue is it has 1 8gb stick of ddr4 3200 memory i added another 8gb ddr4 3200 so it runs in dual channel and it makes a huge difference especially with ryzen quick $30 upgrade and now runs even better then it did this can easily replace any desktop except a high end gaming pc for every day use
only 1 weird thing is camera is on bottom of bezel camera does work great just seems a little weird in placement
very easy to get into for upgrades only 1 sticker has to be broken for 1 screw other 7 are right there free memory slot and free nvme2 slot makes this a great laptop
screen is crystal clear and colors are spot on
speakers sound great best ones ive had in at least 10 years on any laptop
keyboard feels nice and a lot of changeable rbg or you can take off if you like
has the game/office button right next to power so easily change modes
NO BLOATWARE only added are the gateway control center for lights/modes etc and 6 months of nortons NO bloatware at all
another thing this actually has a power brick something most laptops do not have any more battery life is about 7 to 8 hours on office mode and 3 to 5 on gaming mode on full high destiny 2 game mode i got little under 5 hours on Netflix streaming non stop for almost 6 hours so battery life is good for a dedicated graphic card laptop
i have a msi gaming laptop with i i7 and gtx 1650 in it and this laptop runs better and benchmarks better then that by far also sounds better and plays much smoother then the msi one
BUY THIS YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED
Happy as a Lark
l Iove the computer it is very easy to set-up, the speed, graphics and sound are outstanding. You can always get assistance from Cortana.
the specs look good but i still haven't tried it its taking a while to ship.
Best Laptop for the price!
Got on sale for $599 and this is the best laptop you can get for the price. You will not find another laptop with these specs with a screen refresh rate of 120hz. It's just unheard of. This laptop will run all new games as 60 fps at medium to high graphics. (Black Ops Cold War, MW, madden 21, 2k21, forza horizon etc.) Great bang for your buck if you are thinking about it, do it. I have desktop gaming pcs that can't perform as well its pretty amazing.
5 stars !
Fantastic product. Very user friendly and Great battery life. Highly recommend it! So happy gateway products are back.
Great for video editing
Its been very easy and fast editing videos with the creator series. This was a good purchase
