You might wonder just why we have been covering a lot of laptop news of late, and the reason behind this is because we have taken a look back over the past few months and we have covered a lot of games and tablets. This was wrong because the laptop market is still a popular one and there are still some great models being released, along with some pretty decent older models as well.
Take the Gateway NV570P09u touch-screen laptop with an Intel Pentium 2117U processor, this is not the most up-to-date model from the range, but it is still one being produced and has proved very popular for Gateway.
Looking over the specs you will see that the NV570P09u is a perfect laptop for entertainment, productivity and networking, which is thanks to its touchscreen. This would not be possible without Windows 8, but it is clear there are still improvements to be made with this technology and software partnership.
Speaking of those specs, they include a 1.8GHz 2MB L3 cache Intel processor, 4GB of RAM, 750GB hard drive, HD Audio and up to four hours of batter life. Full specs and features for the NV570P09u laptop can be found on the Gateway website.
While on the surface this seems like a more than capable laptop, we can see there is some sort of review indecision from Gateway NV570P09u owners, as the reviews are a bit of a mixed bag.
Most reviews from Amazon customers have been very happy with the laptop saying what great value for money it is, but some owners have said they have had nothing but hassle the moment they purchased it. Find out just what these pros and cons are by visiting the link above.
