Bangalore: In an era of ultrabooks, mid range laptops are not being so favored from quite some time. They are not exactly meant for providing high performance, but they offer a slew of substantial benefits like its relatively cheaper price range along with the above average specs. This Acer Gateway NE56R is one among them those mid-range laptops with decent specifications but, not worthy enough to justify you to buy. Read on to find out more details.


The Gateway NE56R has a good looking glossy black exterior and its interior has a black and silver color combination and looks classy. Though the exterior is not designed with a metal but, convey a professional look. Speaking of the inside; the keyboard is not well enough spaced out for comfortable typing. The key are clustered and you will end up pressing wrong key too often.

The trackpad is very responsive and supports multi-gesture commands; it can recognize patterns that use more than one finger. It supports gestures like circular motion scrolling, pinch action zoom, page flip and scroll. However the single mouse button design doesn’t go well for those users who are familiar using two separate buttons.

The left side of the laptop consists of charging port, LAN port, VGA, HDMI port, USB slot and microphone and headphone jack. At front it has LEDs for power, Wi-Fi status and the multi-card reader. While at the right side it has Kensington lock, DVD writer and two USB slots. Design and built wise there is no disappointment at this price range to get 15.6 inch laptop, the screen area is sturdy but the hinges are little weak.

3: eventhough its not a product purely from acer,, gateway is excellent in its performance. nice, reliable and ofcourse cost effective. greater speed in performance, and for me it gives a lot of satisfaction above all. so i recommend this product for all those who need a netbook with moderate uses within a moderate budget. Thank you

7: I purchased this computer and windows would not load. I took it back to the store and exchanged it. The second computer locked up, inexplicably lost word documents and had trouble playing videos. When I called customer service within two days I was told that the problem could not be fixed and I would have to send it back to the company for repair as they do not provide replacements. Stay away from this computer.
