The Gateway P-7808u FX Edition Gaming Notebook
The notebook is an attractive little machine with the orange and grey that we are used to seeing on all FX series notebooks since they first debuted.
This is a shot of the rear of the P-7808u with a massive battery sticking out far enough to make Sir Mix-a-lot proud. His anaconda would want some, trust me.
The right side of the machine has the HDMI out, eSATA, VGA out, RJ-45, a single USB port, FireWire port, ExpressCard slot, microphone jack and headphone jack.
There isn't much to see on the front edge of the notebook other than the shiny button that releases the screen and the switch that turns Wi-Fi on and off.
The right side of the notebook is where the DVD burner with Lightscribe resides along with a large cooling grate to keep the quad-core beast cool, and a couple USB ports.
The bottom of the P7808u FX has the doors that give access to internal components of the notebook.
Flip the lid open and you get your first glimpse of the large keyboard with attached numeric keypad. You can see the WASD keys get a different color font to set them apart from the rest of the keyboard.
The screen on the P-7808u FX isn't as glossy as the one on the Alienware M15x I checked out recently and has less resolution, but it works well.
