Gateway continues to groove in the mobile market, this time with a new line of midrange laptops. Kicking off the company's new compact and lightweight TC series are the TC7306u (black) and TC7307u (burgundy) models.

Both notebooks sport the same internal configuration, which consists of an Intel Pentium Dual-Core Mobile T4200 (2GHz, 1MB, 800MHz frontside bus), 4GB of DDR2-667 memory, Intel GMA 4500M graphics, 8X DVD burner, 320GB hard drive, and Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit. Other specs include a 14-inch 1366 x 768 (16:9) LED backlit display, 1.3MP webcam, WiFi (Draft-N), a multicard reader, and three USB 2.0 ports.

To the power users who will pooh-pooh the processor choice, Gateway says future configurations can include Intel's Core 2 Duo CPUs, as well as an HDMI port and up to a 500GB hard drive. Gateway further indicated that future models might also come equipped with a Blu-ray optical drive and Nvidia's GeForce 9300M graphics depending on demand.

Both the TC7306u and TC7307 are available now with an MSRP set at $650.
