gateway ne56r34u reviewGateway are very well known for their affordable yet useful laptops. The NE56R34u is a mid-range laptop that falls in the same category. This model is meant for all the easy works one could think of in a portable laptop. Though the laptop, for its size, has a low price point it does not disappoint users who need something a little more than basic.

Let’s start with the looks. The 15.6 inch screen is neatly done. The picture quality is pretty good and the 1366 x 768 resolution is sure to grab some eyeballs. A lot of people will be satisfied with a 15.6 inch screen and they are sure to have good movie experience.

The inside is as good as the outside. The NE45R34u is powered by the 2.2 GHz Intel Pentium processor B960. There is 4 GD RAM which adds a lot of power to the user and they have also given a lot of space in their 500 GB hard drive. This will definitely not be your gaming device with a graphics card of 128 MB. There is also a dual layer DVD burner and 3 USB 2.0 ports to enable file transfer to and from the laptop. There are also a HDMI port which serves its purpose successfully.

That’s it for the spec side. The user experience is very neat in this laptop. The media experience is enriched with built in features and their special media control keys. The social media integration is a real plus here with multi gesture touchpad lending a very helpful hand.

The device comes loaded with Windows 8. And if you are a fan of this new operating system then you have an exciting prospect. As far as the battery is concerned, it gives a good performance. Though you can’t expect the 4.5 hours they have mentioned, it really stands tall depending on what you are doing. To be honest this actually doesn’t feel like a budget laptop, especially with all the features that come with the same.

To conclude things, this laptop is a basic device that can perform all your day to day activities. If you are looking for a device that you can use it to play games all day or some excessive multi tasking then this is not the right choice. This is best choice for you if you don’t have any problem going basic.
