Reviews for the Gateway NE56R12u
Source: Comp Reviews Archive.org version
Gateway takes their NV series of laptops and gives them an even more affordable makeover with the NE56R12u which can typically be found for under $400. The system is certainly affordable and is sufficient for many that just need basic computer needs. Heck, it has the same memory, hard drive size and battery life as system that cost nearly twice as much.
