  • Gateway takes their NV series of laptops and gives them an even more affordable makeover with the NE56R12u which can typically be found for under $400. The system is certainly affordable and is sufficient for many that just need basic computer needs. Heck, it has the same memory, hard drive size and battery life as system that cost nearly twice as much. It does sacrifice other conveniences such as a comfortable keyboard or USB 3.0 ports and packs in a fair amount of unnecessary software.


  • The 15.6-inch Gateway NV57H54u delivers a comfy keyboard and good performance for less than $500, but a few drawbacks keep it from being a top pick.


  • The Gateway NV57H54u is a 15.6-inch powerhouse laptop that offers great performance, a comfortable keyboard and long battery life all without a high price. It does suffer from a mildly dim display and some touchpad issues, but other than that, it's a solid buy.
