Reviews for the Gateway NV55S22u

80% Gateway NV55S22u 15.6-inch Laptop PC
Source: Comp Reviews English
With street price of right around $600, the Gateway NV55S22u is one of the most affordable laptops available with strong multimedia features including the AMD APU for near dedicated graphics performance and a Blu-ray compatible drive. It is nice to see a few extras such as 6GB of DDR3 memory as well which helps the quad core processor for those that like to multitask.

AMD Radeon HD 6620G: Integrated processor graphics card (in the A-Series of Llano APUs) without dedicated graphics memory.

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

A8-3520M:

Llano quad-core APU clocked at 1.6-2.5 GHz (Turbo Core) featuring an integrated Radeon 6620G (400 cores, 400MHz) graphics card.

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.
