Gateway NV55S05u Laptop Key Features

The feature set is as standard as it gets in this price range. It has three USB 2.0 ports, and no eSATA or USB 3.0 technology, which have faster transfer speeds than USB 2.0. A USB 3.0 port can be found on the Asus U56E-BBL5. The NV55S05u lacks the latest wireless technologies, such as WiMAX and Wireless Display 2 (WiDi 2.0), which can be found in the Lenovo V570-1066A9U and U56E-BBL5 (although you do get Wi-Fi and Ethernet for network connectivity). Like every other desktop replacement, the NV55S05u has HDMI and VGA video outputs, a webcam, and a multimedia card reader. Although its 640GB, 5,400rpm hard drive matches that of the Samsung RV520-W01 and Asus U56E-BBL5, it's impressive that Gateway included this much in a cheaper laptop.
