If you buy the Gateway P-7808u FX rather than a high-end gaming notebook like the m15x, you give up some bling for sure. What you don't give up with the Gateway P-7808u FX is gaming performance and usability -- the machine offers those in spades. With a price under $1,800 the performance of the Gateway P-7808u FX bested the m15x on some benchmarks.
As with any 17-inch gaming notebook, the only real downsides to the machine are the size and weight of the notebook. If you can lift the thing, you will not be disappointed with the Gateway P-7808u FX. If I were spending my money on a gaming notebook, the Gateway P-7808u FX is hands down what I would buy.
