Gateway’s new MC Series of laptops are for those of you who demand better a better-than-OK multimedia performance from your laptop. That’s why the Intel Core 2 Duo-based line has a 16-inch (1366×768) glass display (like the new MacBook, just not LED-based), 512MB ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650, 4GB RAM, built-in HDMI 1.3, Draft N Wi-Fi—we’re still only at Draft N?—and an LED backlit keyboard.

Oh, and it can be configured with a Blu-ray drive. (At least that’s what the main info site says, but I’ll be damned if I can find out how to configure that option.) That’s something the MacBook can’t do, at least not without a third-party external drive.

Other than that, it looks to be your standard issue multimedia-friendly laptop. Which, I think nowadays, can be used to describe nearly every laptop out there.

Also, since Gateway its own merchandise, you’ll need to buy it from a Best Buy or whatever, with prices starting at $949.
