The Gateway NV57H44U is a no thrills laptop that comes with the 2.4 GHz Intel Core i5 Sandy Bridge and the Intel HD 3000 graphics chip. It also packs 4GB RAM, a 500GB hard drive and USB 3.0 connectivity. These are already good specs and on top of that Gateway has added 802.11n WiFi, a card reader, a 6-cell battery, a DVD drive and Windows 7 Home Premium OS.
In case you discovered us just recently you might know we aren’t big fans of cheaply specced laptops with a high price tag. A good example is yesterday’s Kouziro Frontier NX. That is why we believe the Gateway NV57H44U (although having a horrible name) is more suitable for those looking to buy a good laptop under $500.
That’s right: the Gateway NV57H44U costs just $449.99, a whole $150 cheaper than the Japanese model mentioned above.
