Good Valued laptop-Remember folks a Laptop is only as good as what you want to use it for.,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Gateway NE56R12u 15.6-Inch Laptop (2.1 GHz Intel Pentium Processor B950, 4GB DDR3, 500GB HDD, Windows 7 Home Premium) Black (Personal Computers)
This laptop offered what I was looking for in a full sized one. I was looking for a laptop that was rsponsive and had a comfortable weight as I sometimes I need to carry a full-sized laptops to present multimedia presentations when my smaller notebook won't suffice. The system,hard-drive space, and internal memory are all pretty standard. The graphics component is solid for Powerpoint and general ops though not game ready.The trackpad (mouse) and keyboard is sensitive enough even if not so much on more complex programs like games.I disagree with the reviewer who stated the keyboard felt cheap.I think it is smooth enough as to not make unintentional errors. I agree that for people who expect to run multiple tabs to runs 4 or more programs they need to toggle through you might want to get an external mouse. While it's no Sony Vaio or MacBook it's a great value for students, casual freelancers,writers and people who are just looking for a laptop that does what it says.Don't pay under $500 and expect $1700.00 worth of performance after all- A laptop is only as good as what you need to use it for so spend accordingly!
