Gateway NV59C57U NoteBook with Intel Core i5

This Gateway is powered by the Intel Core i5-450M processor.  This is a 64-bit dual core CPU with 4 processing threads.  It runs at 2.4GHz but can use TurboBoost to get up to 2.66 GHz when it needs to. This is a 35W processor.  The laptop comes with 4GB of Dual-channel 1066MHz DDR3 RAM gives you the memory you need to multitask without a worry. It can hold a maximum of 8GB.

The screen is a 15.6″ HD Widescreen Ultrabright™ TFT LCD display with a resolution of 1366×768.  The screen is driven by the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470 graphics engine. This chip has 512MB of dedicated video RAM. This chip has support for Microsoft DirectX 11 and Shader Model 5.0. It should be able to play modern games in at least low to medium settings, so not too bad for a laptop gaming machine. This is coupled with the Mobile Intel HM55 Express Chipset.

For storage you get a 500GB Serial ATA (SATA) hard drive rotating at 5400RPM.  That seems fast, but really it’s the lower end of drives these days.  The size though is plenty big.  The optical drive is a 8x DVD-Super Multi Double-Layer drive.  The media reader is a multi-in-1 which supports Memory Stick™, Memory Stick™ Pro, Multi Media Card™, Secure Digital™, and xD-Picture Card™ formats.

For networking you can use the built-in 10/100/100 Gigabit Ethernet LAN adapter through the RJ-45 port.  On the wireless side, which is what you’ll use most of the time, is a 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi certified adapter for compatibility with just about every wireless network.

External ports include 3 high-speed USB 2.0 ports, 1 VGA port, 1 HDMI port, 1 headphone, and 1 microphone port.  Other features include a built-in HD webcam (1280×1024) and microphone for your video chatting needs.   Also included are built-in speakers with High-Definition audio support.

The laptop comes installed with Genuine Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit Edition.  Other software includes Microsoft Works, Microsoft Office Home & Student 2007 (60-day complimentary trial period, Cyberlink PowerDVD, Nero 9 Essentials, Adobe Reader, Adobe Flash Reader, Gateway MyBackup Solution and Norton Internet Security 2010 (60-day trial).

The laptop measures 14.99″x9.96″x1.22″-1.34″ and weighs 5.72 pounds.  The 6-cell Lithium ion battery (4400 mAh) can provide up to 4 hours of unplugged power.
