Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

I have had this laptop for 2 weeks now. I love everything about it. The only 2 draw backs are the sound could be better. But as long as you are using head phones or ear buds it is great. So if you connect to your tv buy some cheap speakers for it. The second thing is windows 8...takes awhile to get used to, but within 15 minutes I was fine with it and now like it. I did upgrade to 8.1 and it is good. If you are buying this pc keep in mind you should buy a 32 gig flash drive to copy your start up files for recovery if ever needed. It tells you 16 gig but it was 16.1 and would not fit on any 16 gig flash drives. So I went with a 32 gig. The keyboard is awesome. I think it is excellent for the price. I added more memory which is very easy to do. With the 4 that came with it runs great. I would suggest not using Norton..I use Advance System Care it does everything for you. Hope this helps you to decide to buy it. Also if you play facebook and or Zynga games you love this computer.

I read the reviews on the Gateway NE56R41u before buying. The biggest complaint that I saw in those reviews was that it has windows 8. That is probably my biggest issue with trying to figure how to navigate through it. Taking it to my computer tech guy tomorrow to add a start button so the OS is more functional for use by myself. The reviews also said the volume can be an issue. This also bears out, as it doesn't have the volume range I would hope for. I own a set of external speakers that I can use if it doesn't prove to be loud enough on occasion. In a room without a lot of background noise, you can hear a movie at a satisfactory level. Throw in some distracting noise, you might want to hook up some external speakers. Designed for under-50-ears i imagine. Absolutely no other complaints. Still worth every penny. I would recommend, and will look at gateway first the next time around after not being excessively overjoyed with my last 3 laptops that were Toshibas.

I gave this 5 starts because compared to my last laptop, this is like the normal customer buying something with a Core processor. It is fast and responsive, meets my needs, and even a little more. This has double the memory my last laptop and double the hard drive. I am only a light gamer, and I go to an online school so this is something I need. It runs all programs I have installed on it just fine. I like Intel Pentium because it is just a step below the Core processors and a huge step above the processor of my last laptop which had Celeron. I love Windows 8 compared to Vista and Windows 7. However, there are a few things that I don't like about it. I don't like the size of the touchpad. Also the webcam, even though it is 720p, the resolution isn't that great, it appears to me to be about 2 or 3 megapixels. But it is still good for Skype and things like that. Overall I love this laptop and I recommend it for someone who isn't a heavy gamer and does just general web-surfing, school, and someone who likes to browse YouTube like I do.

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

I had purchased the HP Winter Blue 15 6 2000 2b19wm Laptop from Walmart and returned it for this Gateway NE56R41u because this laptop felt better to type on and had a full keyboard (with the number keys). It also just feels like a more responsive and better laptop than the HP (note that the Gateway cost about $30 more than the HP). After learning how to use Windows 8, I like it, but at first, I found it somewhat frustrating. This laptop was for my daughter starting college, but if I was going to purchase a laptop for myself, I would definitely purchase it with Windows 8. I like the idea of apps with Windows 8 (as I have an android phone), and feel this is the future of laptops (apps like they have on smart phones). For folks not liking Windows 8, I would recommend they take a tutorial of it (there are many on the internet) and they may have the same experience I had and really enjoy Windows 8.

Having already tried several other Windows 8 laptops, this one had the most power at 2.20 Gighz Pentium Processor and 4 gigs of memory....this seems to be the key to getting Windows 8 to perform and it does it VERY well, especially on the internet where my 3 meg service feels like a 30....it is quick. This laptop does have a full sized keyboard with Num pad, has good sound quality (once you find the HD sound adjustments) and runs quiet as a mouse. Online is where it really shines with excellent performance and superb video quality. Overall this has the feel of a High End Laptop and not so much the under powered laptops at the same price level. The only two odd things I found missing was a Caps Lock light and no NumLk light, but that is not a real issue when all things are considered. Windows 8 can be intimidating, but when you have enough power it makes things much more bearable and IF you do get yourself into trouble, the Recovery features do work very well. The final note: Customer service is in INDIA and is TERRIBLE but the key is to demand to speak to level 3 support....much better and no accents! All in all, this is a keeper.
