When it comes to notebooks there are a few general classifications of systems. You have gaming notebooks (like the recently reviewed Alienware Area-51 m15x), netbooks, multimedia machines and basic notebooks as a few of the gross category types.
Of the available machines, the gaming notebook and multimedia notebook tend to be the most powerful and expensive machines you can buy. While the gaming notebook focuses on discrete graphics capable of driving video games at high refresh rates, the multimedia notebook focuses more on what the fan of movies and music would need in a machine.
Today I am looking at the Gateway MD7826u notebook computer. The machine is a multimedia PC that offers good looks and good performance that will get you through just about any media task you need. If you are in the market for a notebook capable of doing just about anything you can throw at it, the Gateway MD7826u may be just what you need.
