Intel Core i5 2430M 

Released October, 2011
  • 2.4 GHz
  • Dual core
6.1 Out of 10

The HD 3000 is capable of running a lot more than I ever thought it would (Skyrim for example-High textures, 16x Filtering, 2x SMAA, High decals).

Reviews Word on the street for the Intel Core i5 2430M


9.1
Idles at 800mhz when not in use so it saves tons of battery, I generally get 5 hours light use out of the Gateway on the balanced power scheme.
