It also provides up to 5 hours of battery life on a single charge (battery life may vary).

The 15.6" Ultrabright widescreen display is backlit with LED lamps, which use less power and provide better picture quality than their CCFL counterparts. The screen has a 16:9 aspect ratio and its 1366 x 768 native resolution is supported by integrated AMD Radeon HD 7310 graphics. The screen also has a glossy finish for vibrant color.

The system is powered by a dual-core 1.4GHz AMD E-Series E1-1200 processor.

Windows 8 (64-bit) is the installed operating system. Windows 8 replaces the traditional Start menu with a redesigned Start screen. The Start screen features tiles, which provide notifications in real-time. Windows 8 also focuses more on cloud storage as well as apps, which can be downloaded from the Windows Store. Windows 8 provides a unique user experience that differs from previous versions of Windows.

        Comments about Gateway NE Series NE51B18U 15.6" Notebook Computer (Satin Black):

        My previous gateway laptop was quite good and at a remarkable price like this one (Around $[$]). I was hoping and expecting that this Gateway NE51B18U would be equivalent quality and was disappointed to find that it is already freezing, even at startup. The audio is really cruddy but the screen is large and lovely (its best and worst quality because it is a darn heavy machine). And to be honest the OS seems downright confused about itself. Sorry.

        Comments about Gateway NE Series NE51B18U 15.6" Notebook Computer (Satin Black):

        This Laptop out from the package didn't start its bundled OS: Windows 8. Gateway's support could get it running so they sent me startup disks. I wonder why they didn't included disks within the computer. While waiting for the disk to arrive (they sent them to an US Addres only, so I needed to be re-sent to Mexico), I installed Linux (Ubuntu 12.04) to check the whole system. The computers works ok in every issue: WebCam, Video, Ports, ... It delivers but do not expect an impressive performance. And I'm now considering to keep Ubuntu and putting the Windows8 median in the bookshelf. But there is a small problem when using the Laptop with Ubuntu and a Projector that Video Output goes black for a few seconds and restarts every couple of minutes. Seems a Linux Driver issue, but I wanted it to be used in my classroom. There is also another anoying issue: The Functions Keys (Fn) are permanently mapped to Hardware functions like Wifi (on/off), Brightness, Touchpad, ... so if you need to use FunctionKeys you need to press "Fn"+Key. If you use shortcuts it will slow you down.
