NotebookReview reviews Gateway M225-E laptop and concludes that “the M255 is a physically attractive notebook with a good screen, and it’s easy to tote around. Based strictly on price, screen, size and build quality, it seems like a good choice for users looking to save money. This particular machine proved capable during basic use, such as email, Internet and document creation, but performed poorly under stress, and the keyboard consistently lacked expected responsiveness, making its presence known in ways it shouldn’t. While performance under stress would likely be addressed by an additional 512 MB of RAM, it’s impossible to say whether the keyboard problems are of a particular or general nature, or, for that matter, if further use would have resulted in user adjustments to diminish or eliminate responsiveness issues. There is also the very real possibility that another user would like the keyboard. One thing I do know: If I were to purchase one or fifty of these notebooks, I would insist on first testing with additional RAM, and if it were a bulk purchase, I would want additional opinions on the keyboard.”
