The top of the Gateway NV59C09u is really nice looking. The silver is matte finished to help ward off fingerprints and the design on the lid is attractive.
The bottom of the machine has the battery and several cooling grates.
The backside of the machine is bland with only shiny hinges for the screen to see.
The right side of the notebook has the Blu-ray drive and a pair of USB ports along with the Kensington lock port.
The front edge of the notebook is where you find the memory card reader and some indicator lights.
The left side of the Gateway NV59C09u has the power port, VGA out, HDMI out and RJ45 port along with a cooling grate and headphone/mic ports.
The chicklet style keyboard has a number pad and full size keys.
Yep, that's a glossy glare prone screen for you to enjoy with a webcam at the top.
