Final thoughts

 

At the end of the day, the Gateway NV59C09u is a solid all around notebook with nice multimedia features hampered by lackluster GPU performance. If Gateway had opted for a better GPU and a larger hard drive, the Gateway NV59C09u would score much better. At the same time, adding a larger HDD and a better GPU would also drive the price up, hurting the overall value of the machine.

 

The Gateway NV59C09u as it sits is a good compromise for the shopper looking for a multimedia machine on a strict budget. The overall performance is good with the Gateway NV59C09u, but serious multimedia fans will want to look for a machine with better graphics and a larger HDD.

 

This machine is best suited to the user who will occasionally watch video and when they do want to watch, expects Blu-ray and passable HD streaming from online sources.
