Reviews for the Gateway NV59c66u

70% Gateway NV59c Review
Source: Digital Trends English
With prices between $579.99 and $799.99, it’s hard to overlook the NV59c’s potential as an affordable around-the-house entertainment machine. Especially if you opt for the Blu-ray variant. But don’t plan on taking it too far. Its bulk, poor battery life and ding-prone lid would make the NV59c a poor choice for travelling.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

370M: The Core i3-370M is a fast clocked Core i3. The TurboBoost, AES, VTd, and Trusted Execution functions are deactivated in the i3-series. Therefore, it always clocks with max. 2.4 GHz (of course Speedstep is included). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
