        Good looking laptop with fast CPU and basic features. Very well done for its price. I'm pleased with its performance. We buy them as stations for hired part time workers. Simple and reliable.

        This is so good for presentation and typing docs.
        But OS - Windows 8 - is uncomfortably for using.
        If there is Windows 7, better than now.

        Comments about Gateway NE56R28u 15.6" Notebook Computer:

        So far this computer has been what I expected. The price is hard to beat for what you get in a total package. The only thing up in the air is windows 8. I'm trying to get comfortable with it, and so far it has not been too frustrating. Good computer and great company. The product got here fast and there were no issues.

                    This laptop had all of the specs I was looking for. After playing with it for more than a week I'm really happy with it. I mostly use my laptop for creating spreadsheets and word documents, surfing the web, and streaming movies/music. I have been very pleased with the speed of the machine. It boots up very quickly, streams movies and music smoothly, and overall does everything I ask it to do without a problem. I'm not a gamer so I can't really say how it would handle games. The only two problems I have: 1)I'm not a fan of Windows 8 yet, and 2) The CD/DVD drive is noisy - it makes "clunking" sounds when playing a DVD. (As I won't be using the drive often I only did a perfunctory test to make sure the drive worked properly, so this may not be an ongoing problem.)I would definitely recommend this laptop to a friend unless they planned to use it for playing CDs/DVDs.
