    What hdmi cord will fit into my gateway laptop model GWTC116-2BL

      The GWTC116 has a mini HDMI port. It’s a compact version of the standard HDMI port you can find on most laptops and TVs. For connecting the Gateway to a screen with a standard-size HDMI port, you’ll need a cable with mini HDMI on one end and standard HDMI on the other.

  10. Question

    Micheal

    Can the ram be upgraded

    • Dan

      No, it can’t, according to Gateway in the Q and A section of the GWTC116-2 page at their official site.

      “Unfortunately the RAM can not be upgraded because it is built into the motherboard”.

  11. Question

    Ronni

    How many watts does this computer use. I am off the grid with total solar power so I am very concerned about energy efficiency

    • Dan

      I don’t know the exact number, but laptops with the low-power N4020 and small 11.6″ screens are certainly among the most power efficient ones.

    • anony mous

      n4020. 6 watt max cpu. 11″ screen.. ips draws slightly more power than tn, but well worth it.

  12. 4 out of 5 nice portabe

    Douglas Habersaat

    Great for traveling, nice and compact. Annoyances: non-illuminated keyboard, no key to change screen brightness. To change screen brightness, press the “Windows” key and letter I, display settings will show up and a slider will allow easy brightness setting. Otherwise an excellent compact system at a great price.
