Machine can run every pc game in 2011 smoothly on recommended settings. With regards to 2012, max out the ram (16gb) I believe and it should do 90% of all current games. This thing is a monster for the price.
AMD a8 is a 3rd generation processor. It is meant to compete with the intel i5; though many say its not as fast, a minute difference at best, realize one thing both are coupled with a videocard. AMD's is far superior; simply put amd is for gamers.
Style wise, the pictures aren't great on the website so it feels like a gamble. If you want a good idea, youtube it, you should get this single video where in it the guy has random dumb images appear as he unpacks his laptop, this is it. Too lazy to do that, then imagine the red gateway laptop with the amd a6, just black with a metallic gray keyboard.
The sound is pretty good, and the image quality is amazing, better than my lcd desktop monitor.
With regards to the battery, it says it maxes out at 5 hours, But that's probably on a dark screen playing solitare. For movie watching or surfing on powersaver it should be around 3.5-4 hours.
Material wise, its a solid laptop, its really solid plastic, with a metallic keyboard background to prevent things from intruding inside. I find it way better than the quality of my old dell.
Style wise I love it, it has a geometric pattern on the black portion and the lid closed looks like other nv's when closed.
If you still want more review on the laptop, look at the Acer Aspire V3-551-8469 15.6-Inch Laptop. It has 32 reviews, and is from what I find the exact same laptop, just acer branded, and 25$ more. Realize Acer bought Gateway in 2007, and gateway is a branch of it.Read more ›
I purchased this Gateway NV52L15u a year ago and I targetted the purchase to see what lower cost laptops could provide. Unforuntately my experience with this Gateway has been bad from the start. When I first received the unit I could not get the wireless working. I had tried several steps to fix it like upgrading to the latest drivers and I was even advised over the phone to reinstall the operating system. At the end of it I had to ship the unit at my own expense and the issue was that it needed a BIOS update.
After that was resolved I thought it would be smooth sailing, but then when Windows 8.1 launched the unit gave me problems with the upgrade.
The final straw to all of this is that the power button has failed and of course right after the 1 year warranty expires. Like other reviewers this is my last Gateway that I will ever purchase.
I have realized that by purchasing a lower cost laptop you get what you pay for. The plastics feel cheap, the touch pad is marginal, and like other reviews sound quality and the resolution for the display is bad.
I thought I would be able to over look these things but for a machine to only last 1 year it is unacceptable.
Buy another product you will thank yourself in the long run.
