Gateway, a wholly owned subsidiary of Acer Inc., today debuts the Gateway P-7811FX notebook PC, the latest in its P-Series FX Edition line for gaming, entertainment and digital media hobbies such as photography and video editing.

The Gateway P-7811FX is designed to meet the needs of consumers who want a solid mobile enthusiast platform without the price premium typically associated with such PCs.

The Gateway P-7811FX uses the latest NVIDIA GeForce 9800M GTS graphics solution with 512MB of GDDR3 discrete video memory to deliver outstanding graphics performance and real-time 3D visuals. Combined with the Intel Core 2 Duo P8400 processor (2.26GHz, 3MB L2 Cache, 1066MHz), the NVIDIA GeForce 9800M graphics card results in first-class mobile performance and vibrant, realistic video displayed on the 17-inch widescreen (1920×1200 resolution).

Further enhancing the consumer’s entertainment experience, the Gateway P-7811FX is loaded with extras.

The illuminated multimedia keys are integrated into the keyboard surround to allow access to frequently-used audio and video functions, while the touch-control volume slide provides convenient control.

Staying in touch is easy with the P-7811FX thanks to its 1.3 megapixel webcam that lets consumers enjoy video conferencing, video emails, voice over IP and still photos. The notebook also features 802.11 Draft-N with expanded wireless features, so consumers can communicate more effectively on the go. Plus, consumers have ample ways to connect to electronics, peripherals and digital media with the notebook’s 5-in-1 media card reader, three USB 2.0 ports and an IEEE 1394 port.
