1 out of 5 eggsI will stay away

Pros: The Pros are, I learned a lesson by paying a lot of bucks.

Cons: I logged in in order to leave this message to who earn their money through hardships.

I bought two Gateway NE56R34u for my two daughters' birthdays. One had a cracked screen some days ago, WITH NO REASON! I contacted Gateway. They said that screen crack is NOT covered by warranty, even though the computer is just a few months old. They then suggest paying $249+tax + shipping round trip to them for the repairing, which may end up to be similar, if not more expansive, as buying a new computer!

The other computer has the problem of dropping wireless connection from the first day. I reinstalled the system several times, the problem still exists. I contacted Gateway, they thought it was a hardware problem and suggest sending the computer back for repairing.

It is so sad. I wish I could leave 0 egg.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Laptop for Me

Pros: Since this is my first laptop, I think it has great features like the apps., Win 8 is okay once you get use to it. I use FireFox as a browser and occasionally use explorer. MS Office 365 is great if you it use alot, I went with the reg. MS Office. The pc turns on fast and is very quite. The video quality is great. I don't think it heats up that much. I like the portability of laptop.

Cons: The cd/dvd player occasionaly pops open when I move or pick up the laptop. My finger hits it. I suppose it does have too many apps, however you can always delete them and keep the ones you will use.

Other Thoughts: The touch of keyboard is nice since I have small fingers I can type fast. My last computer was a desktop and was 9 yrs old and was very slow.

1 out of 5 eggsLoose Hardware upon arrival

Pros: NO idea, as soon as i picked it up loose hardware could be heard inside of case

Cons: Loose hardware right out of the package

Other Thoughts: Tried to rma but it says not eligable. I have submitted a question to newegg to see what to do, I'm sure I didn't read something when purchased but still need to send it somewhere. I haven't even turned it on.

3 out of 5 eggsSkip Win8

Pros: Great value for the price. Upgraded RAM to 8GB for faster response. Gateway power button on the task bar in desktop is a great plus.

Cons: DVD tray opens if laptop is slightly tweaked while lifting/moving. Too much crapware installed. Power cord connection seems loose.
WIN8 is a poor OS!

Other Thoughts: I've had to do a complete refresh of this laptop 3 times in about 3 months due to Win8 problems. Each time the Start menu page apps quit working. After trying all the suggestions found by searching Google. The only solution was to take the laptop back to factory specs.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Laptop for the price

Pros: Great features for an entry level laptop. I have sold 5 of these with all customers reporting positively...after tweaking the OS and educating the customer.

Cons: Windows 8.

Other Thoughts: Lets face it, some people DO NOT like Win 8 in any flavor. Most are OK with it after I install Classic shell, give the a quick brief on tweaks to make 8 more to their liking and off they go. I did lose 2 sales to customers who wanted NO part of Windows 8...change is inevitable. I did install a test HDD and after tweaking the bios a bit, installed Win 7...runs great!!!

2 out of 5 eggsNot a good laptop

Pros: Like the keyboard layout. Doesn't get as hot as my last acer laptop.

Cons: mouse sucks. one button is awful. Screen has a dead pixel. too late to return and gatway will not repair since it is only one and not the main section of the screen.

Other Thoughts: would have gone with another laptop but was being cheap.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Laptop

Pros: Great Entry Level Laptop! Good features.

Cons: None with the laptop itself. I think Win 8 is good, but it might be a con for some folks. (see below)

Other Thoughts: I have sold three of these units...almost. The first two are working perfectly and the customers are very pleased. The third unit, sold to a good friend, came back the next day. They did not like Windows 8 at all! I sold them a different unit running Win 7. Some folks are OK with the changes in Win 8 and some just hate it...even with a third party Start menu!

5 out of 5 eggsCheap laptop for wife's school work.

Pros: This is pretty much a basic laptop like all the others on the market got this on sale for my wife to do her assignments from school. It's pretty light which is another reason for the purchase.

Cons: Came pre-installed with Windows 8 and the usual garbage programs that comes with all laptops.

Other Thoughts: Wiped the system clean and installed Windows 7.
