Gateway MX-3228 W323-UL1 Laptop - Vintage - one owner - Works:
Gateway MX-3228 W323-UL1 Laptop - Vintage - one owner - Works! Vintage - last-of-a-generation "Desktop-Replacement" Gateway Laptop from 2006.One owner and in excellent shape. I used it for many years as my "desktop replacement" with its 14.1-in "wide-screen" and its re-writable DVD+/- RW CD-R/RW drive.
This is a last-of-a-generation of 32-bit single-core CPU laptop manufactured by Gateway, just before the advent of mainstream multi-core 64-bit processing finding its way into consumer laptops. Rugged, reliable and highly up-gradable, this laptop is easily serviceable with its internal electronics accessible via access-panels and removable covers. It has been upgraded from the stock CPU: this system has a 2.00-Ghz Pentium-M M755 "Dothan" single-core CPU with its increased 2-MByte L2-cache. The Dothan architecture was a precursor to the Core- and Core-2 micro-architectures. Memory has also been upgraded in its single-DDR2-slot to its maximum 1-GByte DDR2 PC2-4200 (533Mhz) capacity.
Be aware of what you are purchasing: while this is completely working and functional machine, judged by today's standards, this laptop is more suitable for studying vintage computers, "retro-computing" and the challenges of "tinkering" - either with its highly accessible and upgrade-able hardware, or by installing a variety of Operating Systems. Originally a Windows-XP machine, I've tinkered with it, installing hardware-upgrades and operating systems including Window-7 to present-day MX-Linux. This has been a fun "tinkering" machine, after retiring it from day-to-day service.
