Color: Cashmere Red Verified Purchase
The laptop is good I purchased a black one and this red unit. I needed a good laptop at an excellent price and these fit the bill. The processor is adequate, not as fast as some of the laptops that I have owned, but it has yet to stall out on anything. It seems to take some time to launch programs when Windows is first loaded, this is probably due to a smaller cache on the processor. Once Windows has fully loaded this computer has handled every task that I have thrown at it so far. The battery life is over 3 hours almost every time that I have used it on battery power. When I watched a movie it seemed more like around 2.5 hours, but then again I didn't have a stop watch going. The Blu-ray player is a huge bonus, I haven't watched any blu-ray movies besides the bundled feature disc, but I have used the HDMI to hook the laptop up to our TV and it worked great.
I was afraid that the red laptop would be an unattractive computer, but it is not. It's more of a burgundy than a red, as a matter of fact it matches perfectly with my wife's LG enV3 cellular phone.
The plastic case feels cheap. I'm not sure if this is because of the fake wood grain pattern on the unit or the actual material used, but this laptop is one of the lightest full sized laptops that I have owned. (Probably because of the plastic type) One of my favorite laptop quality test is to grab it with one hand by the corner with the screen open to see if it is rugged enough not to flex. I owned one lightweight laptop in the past that flexed/bent and made a cracking sound every time that I held it with one hand. This one is sturdy.
The laptop came with the new free version of MS Office, that is feature limited and supported by ads.

This my first non-toshiba laptop, and I have to say that I'm really impressed...first of all the price, I feel like a thief buying such specs for less than $550, but you have to take every deal you can!!! (the actual price for this laptop in the official website is around $750)
I confess I'm a techno-geek and before buying anything regarding laptops I look around like 1000 times, mainly in other brand but somehow I found this Gateway and the thing that convinced me to leave the other brand was the Blu-ray drive and hdmi port.

With 4gb Ram, 500gb Hard Drive, a neat and superb look, integrated webcam, full 101 keyboard, multigesture touchpad, great video resolution (up to 720p on laptop screen, 1080p in capable tv via HDMI port), Blu-ray combo drive, this laptop has met my gamer needs an d my wife's business needs too. This is a heavy weight champion in a light to medium weight body.

I have this baby for 3 weeks now and I'm in love...no regrets so far, i'll update this review in a few weeks...

Overall 5 stars

The Gateway NV55C19u is a great deal. This laptop has 4GB RAM, 500GB memory, Windows 7, Blu Ray, and calculator keyboard for $100-200 less than any other. It is also aesthetically pleasing with exterior texture and simple, elegant design. So far (had it for about a month), so good. I'm able to view blu-ray, copy DVDs, view Internet, and work on basic files. This computer is mainly used for home and minor business use at this time. The battery life is okay. The scroll pads works well for purposed use, but occasionally if touched while typing the Internet or doc page rapidly scrolls down. I have to touch the pad again to get it to stop. To avoid this minor nuisance, I got a wireless mouse and have no issues. The only things I would improve at this time are 1.) moving the USB ports from the front to the back of the laptop, 2.) improving the battery life, 3.) making the scroll pad less eager. But for all these features, for this price, these are minor issues in my book. I would purchase again.

Color: Satin Black Verified Purchase
I bought this just before Valentines Day when it was going for $550. It's gone up every day since. But for $550 it was definitely the best deal at the time. You've seen the specs above. You can get other laptops with those specs for around the same price ($550) but what put this one over the top was the Blu Ray and HDMI. A Blu Ray player goes for $100 so it was saving me some cash from having to buy one of those.

The laptop is solid otherwise. Feels light but firm when you pick it up. Comes with a few add ons that are easy enough to remove. Some are just internet shortcuts to sites like NY Times, Netflix & B&N. The first boot up takes a little while to configure but then it's pretty quick. With the i3 processor and 4GB of RAM I should be set for a couple years.

The biggest issue with this laptop is the pad where you rest your wrist when typing. Way too often I find that the mouse has moved to a different area on the screen because my hand touched the mouse pad or something. But it's been a week and I'm still using it without an external keyboard or mouse. The "gesture" movements do get you sometimes as well. I looked quickly at the different gestures you can use and it looks like they all take 2 fingers. But some how I'm making the movement which makes the font size smaller or bigger for the web page you're on. It even happened while typing this.

One other quirk - the fan. It doesn't run consistent. It goes on and off, on and off in short bursts. Just not used to that I guess. My Dell would stay running for some time.

Other than that this is a really good deal....or was at $550.
I've had 3 different Dells in the past at work where I was in tech support for 9 years. So I've seen a few laptops in my time.
