Posted 7:53 AM by Mezhal Ulao in Labels: , , , ,

Gateway has been producing great new models for the past couple of months ever since the revolution of the netbooks started. Now with the power of the new CULV chips in the market they have come up with a series that is both beautiful and bold without the heavy feeling one gets in their pockets when they purchase it.

The newly launched EC series of Gateway gives their consumers the power to choose between the 11.6" models to 13.3" models that they boast can last well over 8+ hours with heavy computing and a video card from Intel that promises to deliver High Performance 3D graphics.

Here are the things that the EC Series 11.6" models have to offer:
