  • Can do most of the essential tasks
Cons:

The processor is Intel® Pentium® Processor B960(2.2GHz, 2MB L3 Cache), a moderate processor that will run or execute most of your essential needs such as Microsoft Office and web browsers. There is also a 4GB DDR3 memory, which is standard for most laptops nowadays. Most student users will be satisfied with 4GB because they are just running a few simple applications simultaneously such as word processing and Google Chrome. If you're a gamer, then you might want to go for a more powerful laptop. The Gateway NE56R34u also comes with 500GB hard drive running with 5400rpm. This is enough for you to store most of your personal files including your music and movies unless you are those that download tons of stuff. You might want to get an external hard disk for that if that is the case. As usual, we always keep the hard disk with operating system installed empty because it will slow your PC down if it is stuffed. The graphic card in this laptop is Intel HD Graphics, obviously it is not for you if you are a gamer. Nevertheless, you will still able to play some light games. It's just that you can't run the games in high setting.

If you are those that like to chit chat and skype with your friends and family, then the 1.3MP HD webcam is suitable and useful for you. You will be able to see sharper and detailed figure on the screen. There is a HDMI port on the NE56R34u which allows you to connect to an external monitor or HDTV. One drawback is that this laptop doesn't come with USB 3.0 port. However, if you are not transfering bulky files (>100GB) that often, then you still can use the available 3 x USB 2.0 ports.

If you are on a tight budget and looking for a simple laptop that can get most of the simple jobs done, then you should take the Gateway NE5634u into consideration.
