12 months ago I bought the Gateway NV59 laptop and haven't looked back. It was listed as an i3 core processor but when I got it home it had a core i5 processor. The specs are enough for everything that is needed, with 4gb of RAM memory and intel hd graphics that could run games like the new Grand Theft Auto game on PC. The fact that it had an HDMI port was a big factor in buying it so I could hook it up to my TV and stream TV shows and blu-ray - yes, it has a blu-ray player. It also has 4 USB ports, and an SD card slot. The only pain is you have to open the lid to turn it on (I have an external monitor that I always use). All in all, the laptop was well priced for the features it offered and would recommend it.
