Gateway NE56R37u Laptop Review
Gateway is known for its laptops that are priced less than other market leaders. They have also made sure that doesn’t mean a compromise in quality. Their latest offering the Gateway NE56R37u , also follows suit with the same philosophy. Let us see if this laptop can emerge victorious in this category.
The Gateway NE56R37u is a classical laptop that comes with a 15.6 inch screen. The look isn’t anything new from Gateway and since it sports only a standard sized screen the laptop weighs a little less than many other models in the market.
The laptop is powered by an Intel Pentium B960 processor which has a clocking frequency of 2.2 GHz. This processor is good and can run any application. Though it doesn’t match the latest third generation Intel processor it can support the light users easily with all its strengths.
The moderate processor is well supported by the 6 GB DDR3 RAM. The amount of memory can be very useful if the user is trying to perform multitasking and this can also allow almost all of the applications to be installed in the laptop which is an advantage for hobbyists and gamers. The Intel HD graphics card runs most of the games which makes this laptop a gamers’ delight.
The hard drive comes with a capacity of 750 GB. This is better than the standard capacity of 500 GB and gives you more space to store your favorite media and other important information you might want to preserve for years.
The device also comes pre installed with Windows 8 which is the latest offering from Microsoft. If you are not a fan of the latest operating system you can always revert back to the previous and successful Windows 7. The battery life is also pretty decent at 4.5 hours and this could prove very crucial to those who do a lot of traveling.
There are 2 USB 2.0 ports and also a HDMI port which enables the user to connect to their HD television or their Blu Ray player.
There aren’t many problems in this laptop barring the mediocre processor and the absence of USB 3.0 ports. Having said this, you can still enjoy a good user work and play experience in spite of all those minor issues.
If you are in a budget and still would go for a neat laptop then Gateway NE56R37u can be a very good option to consider.
