Reviews for the Gateway NV57H54u
Source: Techreview Source
The Gateway NV57H54u is a 15.6-inch powerhouse laptop that offers great performance, a comfortable keyboard and long battery life all without a high price. It does suffer from a mildly dim display and some touchpad issues, but other than that, it's a solid buy.

The $499 Gateway NV57H54u offers solid performance and endurance along with one of the better-looking and more comfortable keyboards we've used in this price range. What holds this 15-inch laptop back is its friction-heavy touchpad, stiff mouse bar and somewhat dim display. Overall, we prefer the HP Pavilion g6x in the under-$500 category, but if you're looking for a notebook that can do social networking, word processing and light gaming with long battery life at an affordable price, the NV57H54u is definitely worth considering.

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).
65%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
