[ Music ] ^M00:00:05 >> I'm Dan Ackerman and we are here with Gateway's NV7915u. Now this is a desktop replacement that somehow manages to hit that magic ratio of price, performance, components and features to earn one of our super, super, super rare editor's choice nods. Now why is that? It's because this guy is 599, you could certainly get a lot of very good mainstream laptops for that price, not a lot of desktop replacements out there and usually when they're around that 599 price you get kind of very suboptimal components inside. Not a very desktop replacement like experience. However, this guy it's got Intel's newest Core i3 processor which we've been very impressed with performance wise even though it's the lowest end of Intel's current Core i3 and i5, i7 still very good. It's got a large 500GB hard drive. The screen, 17 inch screen, 16 by 9 aspect ratio. The actual screen resolution is 16 by 9. You know, that's not 1080p, but for anything less than like a 1900 by 1080 video it's going to be more than fine. You also get HDMI out and some cool kind of touch control buttons right here on the top for your media functions. Obviously this is a budget system, you're going to have a couple of trade offs. The keyboard large, but a little plasticy for our taste. Touchpad nice and big, but we're not fond of this weird kind of single rocker bar for the left and right mouse buttons. When you put the whole package together for 599 it's a pretty capable laptop. So it's not great for gaming, you're not going to get Blu-ray or anything, but if you need a really big 17 inch screen and you don't want to pay more than let's say $600 you're not going to find a better deal out there than this guy, the Gateway NV7915u.
