Works for me!
Been a Gateway user for years. Only PC/laptop I’ll buy, even though Acer bought them out. Great power, memory, and storage for the money. Fast 2GHz quad core processore! Cannot downgrade to Window 7 from 8 since there are only a few available drivers. Installed third party user interface to make it look and act like Windows 7. Works great. My wife is happy with it, and, if she’s happy, I’m happy.
Light, Sleek and fast!
I’d had an HP laptop for six years. Originally, loved it, but it became a chore to haul it around. It was way too heavy and it’d gotten old and slow. This Gateway NE72206u is a racehorse. It boots up quickly, has a nice long battery life and I love every aspect of it’s use.
Excellent laptop at an unbeatable value
I didn’t have a huge budget for a new laptop, so this one was a great find. It’s everything I needed for work and school, and still powerful enough for mobile gaming and high-def movies. Also, surprisingly light for a widescreen laptop.
This was a gift for a young lady who now needs one in middle school. It is more than whe needs at present but is fast enough and capable enough to serve her for a few years.
Review my laptop
I’m not sure why I have to review this weekly it seems it’s a good laptop. Says to download what you need to do a backup at the beginning but it doesn’t do a backup file to anything say for 28 hours thinking
Laptop yeah Windows 8 Nay
It’s exactly what I Expected. It seems a little big for a laptop but we wanted the larger screen. And we’re happy with its size. Don’t like windows 8, but we new that before we bought it. I WILL GO OUT OF MY WAY TO AVOID WINDOWS 8 ON MY NEXT PC. The cursor pad is very sensitive. To sensitive for my taste and sometimes requires 2 hands to perform certain functions. We’re going to get an actual mouse for it. The only reason for the 4 instead of 5 star rating is because a few of the keys all the way to the left of the keyboard are sticking up as if they are going to pop out. But we’ve been using it for a month now and they haven’t popped out yet. Also the screen is very shinny, so if you have a bright light behind you or window you will see that in the screen along with your reflection at times. Not to bothersome just letting you know.
This is as good as it gets for a budget laptop!!!
This is a really nice laptop. Not super portable, but I really wanted to higher screen resolution and size… that said. IT’S AWESOME. I want a portable desktop replacement, not something I can slip into a sleeve and haul all over. This is it.
I had a Gateway prior to this one and although it only lasted about 2.5 years… it was smaller. Ultimately that had a fan issue and it was prohibitive to replace even though the part was low cost… I HATE, HATE, HATE trying to repair laptops and it proved me right once again… but that did not stop me from buying another.
i will say that many years back I was a top end ThinkPad loyalist… until Lenovo took over. I would prefer a $3000 laptop, but let’s face it – no matter what you buy you are looking at a 3-4 year realistic life on a laptop if you actually travel with it. That and they take much more punishment due to the heat and lack of cooling ability in the small space.
That said, this one has fabulous graphics for the business or casual user. A serious gamer would not be thrilled, but I am. I sell and support accounting software, and want to watch a netflix streamed in a hotel room a few times a year. I also require quite a lot of storage room for client files and databases (I run SQL developer, multiple instances) on here. It’s perfect.
They all seem to be going to the flat keys these days, which is an adjustment – especially since I hook all three of my computers up to a KVM and am used to a more ero keyboard. however the spacing and 10 key on this are great for on the road… it’s just an adjustment from a standard type keyboard layout of course.
