Reviews for the Gateway NV73A10u

Call it a living-large laptop for limited budgets: Gateway’s big-screen NV73A10u is one in a series of newly designed 17-inch notebooks geared toward entertainment, but with an eye on value. With its stylish lid, big display, and discrete graphics, this machine is a good deal for anyone seeking a general-purpose desktop replacement on a budget. Gamers and media mavens should look elsewhere, however.

At just $800, the Gateway NV73A10u is a pretty amazing value. While the performance isn't going to be earth shattering, the AMD processor is able to keep up with similarly priced Intel models. Unlike the Intel laptops, it comes with a well performing 3D graphics processor. To keep the costs down though, the battery life does suffer as does ports for peripheral expansion.

This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
