LAPTOP Magazine – March 2006 – 3 out of 5 stars – The NX100 is the lightest 12.1-inch widescreen ultraportable on the market and also the most affordable. We have some changes on our wish list, but if you want a good-looking, lightweight machine on a budget, it’s a solid choice.

CNET.com – March 2006 – 6 out of 10 – If you’re looking for an extremely portable and stylish laptop and can do without a built-in optical drive or security features, the Gateway NX100X is a solid, economical choice.
