Overview
  • 1Description

The NE Series NE51B18U 15.6" Notebook Computer from Gateway features a minimalist design and a black finish. Measuring 1.31" thin and weighing 5.5 pounds, this Gateway notebook is compact and portable. The 6-cell lithium ion battery sits flush into the chassis, which further streamlines this Gateway notebook's design. 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. It also has 4GB of DDR3 RAM, a 320GB 5400rpm hard drive, a SuperMulti DVD burner, a multi-format media card reader, 10/100/1000Mbps Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, and an integrated webcam and microphone. There are also built-in stereo speakers.

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.
