Reviews for the Gateway NE56R02I
Source: Tech2.in.com Archive.org version
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.

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

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
With this weight, a laptop is rather heavier than average. Devices in this range shine more with screen size and performance than with mobility.
Gateway: Gateway, Incorporated. is a computer hardware company based in California which develops, manufactures, supports, and markets a wide range of personal computers, computer monitors, servers, and computer accessories. AOL acquired Gateway.net, the online component of Gateway Inc., in 1999. 2007, Acer completed its acquisition of Gateway for approximately US$710 million. The market share outside of the US market is rather low.
In 2014 to 2016, Gateway did no longer belong to the Top 10 laptop manufacturers/distributors. Newer devices from Gateway are hardly reviewed by specialist media any longer (as of 2016).
70%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
