After all the benchmarks were done, I am very impressed with the Gateway NV7901u notebook. This is the machine to have if you want a big screen and lots of power at an affordable price. It's hard to fathom exactly how Gateway crammed so much performance into this machine at the sub-$900 price point the machine commands.
The huge LED backlit screen is highly glossy, a major issue when trying to work in a bright room. The glossy screen redeems itself, though, when the workday is over and you want to watch a movie or some video online. The colors are fantastic and the screen has very good contrast. This is one of the better screens that I have seen.
The keyboard of the Gateway NV7901u is large and has well spaced keys. The keys are actually a bit larger than the keys on the keyboard I type on with my desktop PC. The keyboard has a full number pad on the right side and offers great typing feel. The notebook also has media control keys built-in as well. The track pad is exactly what you expect from a track pad. It's accurate and worked without any issues.
You don't buy this machine for portability, but in case you had any illusions of hefting this beast around campus, you had better eat your wheaties. This machine is best used to replace a desktop in the home or office and will only be moved from room to room on occasion. You won't want to take this with you on the road for a day of business.
