The Gateway NV51B05u is a bargain if your computing needs are simple (or simple with a bent toward movie viewing). This laptop isn't for anyone with gaming aspirations, but otherwise its features are first-tier--and you can't argue with the price.

We don't like cheap laptops, but we love inexpensive ones. The difference is one of degree; a cheap laptop looks and feels shoddy, and woefully underperforms. Taking a CPU intended for an 11-inch ultraportable and sticking it in a midsize system can potentially be a recipe for disaster. Gateway's 15-inch AMD Fusion-based NV51B05u avoids any major problems, but it could be better.

Let’s face it: Most of us will rarely use all the processing power that today’s typical dual-core laptop can deliver. So with the Gateway NV51B05u, parent company Acer is betting there’s a market for a mainstream notebook with good-enough performance at an eye-poppingly low price. If a big screen, a roomy keyboard, and a low price are more important to you than sexy looks and sizzling performance, the NV51B05u is for you.

15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.6 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
