Gateway takes their NV series of laptops and gives them an even more affordable makeover with the NE56R12u which can typically be found for under $400. The system is certainly affordable and is sufficient for many that just need basic computer needs. Heck, it has the same memory, hard drive size and battery life as system that cost nearly twice as much.

This particular variant (B812G32Mnks) of the Gateway NE56R is priced at Rs. 22,999. It’s one of the best looking laptops in the segment, with its dual-tone colour scheme and glossy accents. The NE56R comes with a one year warranty and the service is taken care of by Acer India. If you’re planning to buy an entry-level laptop for a budget of up to Rs. 25,000, this model deserves serious consideration. The feature set is good and the price includes a Windows 7 Home Basic license.

70% Gateway NE 72206u review: An affordable, but not so swift, big-screen laptop
Source: PC World English
The NE72206u is a lot of laptop for $500, even if it’s not the swiftest or lightest. Weighing 7.7 pounds with the AC adapter, it’s not for weak shoulders. It is great for working around the house and for playing movies and casual games—but darn, I wish that second drive bay had a SATA connector.

The Gateway NE72206u is an affordable desktop replacement laptop that will meet basic user's needs, but mediocre performance and a dated feature set leave some things to be desired. While the price of the Gateway NE72206u may fit your budget nicely, there’s more to a laptop than price.

While the price of the Gateway NE72206u may fit your budget nicely, there's more to a laptop than price. The NE72206u offers passable battery life, a decent feature set, and a large display, but other competitors offer better value. The Editors' Choice Dell Inspiron 15 (I15RV-6190 BLK), for example, offers similar performance for nearly $100 dollars less, and the Toshiba Satellite C875-S7340 offers better performance, which will translate into a faster, more enjoyable experience.

Living with the Gateway NE72206u for a few weeks has convinced us that we probably overbought with our past few family PCs. The Gateway NE72206u shows just how high you can reach on a low budget in today's laptop market. Yes, it's missing some creature comforts and performance overall is merely adequate, but if you want a 17-inch bargain with great battery life, you'll want to check it out.

Gateway reviews


Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel HD Graphics 3000: Integrated graphics card in the Intel Sandy Bridge processors (Core ix-2xxx). The HD 3000 is the faster (internally GT2 called) version with 12 Execution Units (EUs).

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

AMD Radeon HD 8400:

An integrated GCN-based GPU with 128 shader units and no dedicated VRAM. It is typically clocked at 600 MHz and paired with AMD Richland A6 "Kabini" processors.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Pentium:

B950:

Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. Due to the Pentium brand, many features of the Sandy Bridge core are deactivated.

Intel Celeron:

B815:

Entry level dual core processor for laptops with integrated graphics card (faster compared to the similar Celeron B810) and reduced features of the Sandy Bridge core (no Turbo Boost, AES, ...). 

AMD A-Series:

A6-5200: Quad-core APU for low-end laptops, codenamed Kabini. Based on the Jaguar architecture. Integrates an Radeon HD 8400 graphics card.


» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.5 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.

3.2 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.


66.67%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
