    Laptops meant for everyday use are usually preferred by people over other variants as they are tuned for a wide range of performance based activities and tasks.

    Superior performance through new age technology

    The second generation dual core Intel Pentium Sandy-Bridge Processor clocks in at 2.2 GHz which is fast enough for your everyday processes. The Sandy-Bridge technology makes processors work much faster and is also more responsive, giving you a better computing experience.

    Wide field of view

    The Acer Gateway NE56R laptop comes with a 15.6 inch wide-screen Gateway Ultrabright LED Backlit TFT LCD Display which makes viewing videos and pictures an absolute visual treat. For an everyday laptop, the use of Intel HD Graphics card is quite adequate especially with the DDR3 technology. This will be able to render videos pictures and casual games with vivid detail.

    A Stair-master for the fingers

    The keyboard layout in the Acer laptop has been designed in such a manner that typing is an absolute breeze. The keys are all well placed and equidistant from each other. This makes it easy to type fast and effortlessly while making it difficult to make errors even with minimal skill.

    Sleek Looks

    The laptop comes with a solid build and premium looks. The glossy finish adds a touch of class and sophistication to the device. It also makes it very easy to clean thanks to the shiny areas on the laptop. The design used for constructing the laptop keeps things simple and sleek, making it easy to carry with you as well.

    I bought this laptop mainly to do my app support on win xp(win xp will not work with this laptop.)The pre installed linpus linux is a lite version of linpus linux(only text commands ll GUI).so i downloaded linux 12.04 from net and when i try to install through pen drive,it doesnt work(pen drive installation is not supported).so i found a dvd writer and burnt the installation iso. Installation is also very ba...

    Good Product ! Value Deal

    Product is Ecstatic and Good Value for Money.
    Excellent PDC level Product with Great Features..
    Additional Warranty offer is great at this price. Great Value Deal.
    No issues if you Load Win 8 . Suggest 64 Bit DVD to be used and it will take care of all drivers and install the product. Require formating of existing partitions.
    Suggest to go for Win 8 Professional offer at Rs 3499 as its an excellent introductory offer.
    For additional Warranty Promo please log into Acer website and regist...

    Brand new laptop!

    The laptop was delivered within 2 days of placing an order.
    'Seriously amazed' at the speed of delivery.

    The laptop came in state-of-the-art packing. Better than the my Dell Xps ordered from directly.

    The courier folks were respectfull and very co-operative with my repeated enquiries, so also were the phone-support team.

    Now the laptop.
    One shinny glossy piece,I tell you. But a helluva fingerprint magnet.
    Looks very classy and elegant. The fit and finish of the ports,hubs, hinge...

    A very good laptop at a very good price.

    First things, this is one of the very few laptops that includes a HD webcam and a dedicated 128MB graphics.

    Win7 with all aero effects enabled runs very smooth, no glitch whatsoever. Tried running a 1080p full hd vid, runs smoothly. The HDMI out works great for mirroring the output to HD TV. The webcam is great , tried with all messengers. And yes there is a big diffidence in chat video quality between a normal 0.3 MP webcam and HD webcam. This laptop also runs light games like the older ne...

    Good laptop

    I order this item and got within few days. Flipkart service is really great. It was night 8:00pm I got this in hand. Item package is good. Pack as a gift is useless, I lost my money! The laptop came with pre-installed Linux. Finishing and looking is really great. Graphic is more than enough. But the battery is not 5hrs(with Windows 8 enterprise 32bit), it only run 3hrs. hmmm....!!

    The USB ports are too closed that I can't plug Pendrive and MBlaze together!

    oh! almost forget.... the keys are...

    Good Laptop in this price range....

    Windows Experience index:
    Gaming graphics:5.8
    Primary hard disk:5.9

    Only thing you need to bother about this laptop is its keyboard.... its a lil delicate.... but you will get used to it....
    On all other aspects its a good one compared to toshibas at this price range...

    one more acer branding in laptop... but acer is the manufacturer and service authority for this laptop....

    A great VFM, ram upgrade is bit of trouble

    I already have a powerful Desktop & Laptop, so bought this one for day to day work like emailing, bit of spreadsheet work etc.

    Intel Pentium 2nd Gen Dual Core with 2GB of ram, ah lets upgrade it to another 4gb to give it a bit of pump. But I never thought of this, a warranty seal on the bay screw hole, that mean if you dare to tamper the seal your warranty will be void.

    So, if you want to upgrade the ram you need to call the Acer Service No 1-800-11-6677 and tell them to generate a call id ...
