Questions and Answers

More Info

Hard Drive
A 320GB, 5,400RPM hard drive makes this notebook a strong performer for mobile tasks. It's got plenty of room for your operating system and leaves you lots of space for taking work on the road and those essential mobile creature comforts like your music, videos, and pictures. The SATA, or Serial Advanced Technology Attachment hard drive has an integrated controller which supports the drive. A SATA interface connects an ATA hard drive to the computer's motherboard. The advantages of SATA include speed, smaller cables, and it uses a separate bus. Smaller cables can easily be stowed out of the way of other components. This also promotes better airflow within the case helping to keep your system cooler.

Intel® HD Graphics
Picture this, stunning visuals rendered with incredible realism for the ultimate computing experience. That is the beauty of Intel HD Graphics. Behind the scenes, an advanced video engine supporting multi-functional data processing, dynamic load balancing, multi-threading, and the ability to switch between integrated and discrete graphics, processes graphic and media data so you see high-quality content whether you're working, watching high-definition video, or proving your mastery of the latest 3D games.

High Definition Audio
You know that moment when you que up your your favorite MP3, and when the music starts it totally surrounds your senses because it's so clear and pure? Prepare to be awed by some serious high-quality sound; like hearing your tunes for the very first time.

Intel 64
Take advantage of 64-bit computing when using 64-bit compatible software. This architecture enables systems to access more than 4GB of virtual and physical memory. Also known as EM64T, it is fully compatible with 32-bit operating systems giving you the flexibility to upgrade to a 64-bit OS when ever you're ready. Intel's 64 architecture works on servers, workstations, desktops, and mobile platforms.

Enhanced Intel SpeedStep® Technology
Now get even more performance enhancing, energy conserving benefits from Intel. With SpeedStep technology, your processor simultaneously switches voltage and frequency to high or low levels depending on processor load. Enhanced SpeedStep technology performs voltage and frequency changes separately so the system performs better with reduced latency due to system unavailability.

Thermal Monitoring Technologies
This feature is designed to protect the processor in the event of unusual circumstances such as cooling fan failure which can cause damage if internal chassis temperatures become higher than normal. It works by reducing the processor's power consumption if the programmed thermal temperature is exceeded.

The processor contains a thermal diode which measures the actual CPU temperature and relays its temperature and thermal requirements to the motherboard. The motherboard uses those requirements to control the processor fan and ensure it does not spin faster than necessary - even under worst case power use.

Intel Fast Memory Access
Intel updated its integrated memory controller hub technology to optimize available memory bandwidth and reduce latency associated with memory access, thereby improving system performance.

Intel Flex Memory Access
This Intel technology makes upgrading easier by "allowing different memory sizes to be populated and remain in dual-channel mode," according to Intel.

Execute Disable Bit
Reduces your system's exposure to viruses and malware attacks, and the chances of self-executing and propagating software from taking down your system or network. That can save you costly repairs, lost productivity, and revenue.

10/100/1000 Gigabit Network
Just when you thought life couldn't go any faster, technology changed the rules. Using more bandwidth and full-duplex capacity, the 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet will have you connecting with the Internet or your other devices faster than you can say gigabit.

Multi-in-1 Digital Media Card Reader
Got your life preserved in pictures and video? You'll love the high-performance media card reader in the Gateway NE56R15u. Not only does it handle a variety of formats, this high-performance tool makes managing your data a snap. And, with the click of a single button, you can run your best slide shows on your monitor.

Windows® 7 Home Premium
Faster boot times, streamlined task management, security enhancements, advances in touch capability, and more ways to personalize your system. With Windows 7 Home Premium, it's even easier to network your components, share files, watch Internet TV and record those must-see shows or make your own movies from your favorite photos. Entertainment has never  been cooler than with Windows Media Center. You can watch, pause, and record live programs, enjoy a variety of online entertainment, or take a break with your best music.

Microsoft® Silverlight®
Silver light is a free plug-in for creating rich media and business applications. It works with all major browsers on Windows, Mac, and Linux operating systems, and various mobile devices.

Designed for web developers and designers, Silverlight enhances content with a suite of interactive features including smooth high-definition streaming on any device, enables live content manipulation, and it offers more than 60 high-quality customizable controls. It also supports advanced data integration, multithreading, and offers built-in content protection.

Windows Live™ Essentials
Now have even more fun with Windows Live Essentials. With programs like Movie Maker you can be the creative director of your own media studio turning your videos and photos into memorable works of art complete with sound and special effects. Then share your artistic works with family and friends while you're chatting via Messenger. There's also programs for managing multiple e-mail accounts, parental controls, and even a program for creating a cool blog.
