Re: Gateway M-6823 Notebook
The 15.4-inch widescreen LCD display is the most common size for a budget system and does a good job. The newer Intel GMA X3100 graphics do help improve video playback on the screen and does 2D graphics just fine, but like most integrated graphics lacks any performance for 3D applications. Gateway has even included a 1.3 megapixel webcam into the bezel of the display.
