Reviews for the Gateway NV77H05u
Source: PC Mag Archive.org version
The Gateway NV77H05u is a solid performer when it comes to day-to-day tasks, but outside of that there's not much else this budget laptop offers. If you're willing to part with $20 more, then the Editors' Choice Asus U56E-BBL5 will provide more wireless features (WiDi 2.0 and WiMAX) as well as a better processor.

Gateway;s NV77H05u will appeal greatly to a very specific segment of buyers. That would be those looking to get a low cost laptop that features a larger screen with a higher resolution. At $600, it is very affordable and offers some surprising features including 6GB of memory and a USB 3.0 port. This is great for those that don't need high performance or 3D graphics.

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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
In former years, this weight was representative for laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal. Nowadays, 17 inch laptops weigh less than that.
