Questions and Answers

More Info

500GB SATA Hard Drive
SATA stands for Serial Advanced Technology Attachment. This type of hard drive has an integrated controller which supports the drive. A SATA interface connects an ATA hard drive to the computer's motherboard. The advantage of SATA is 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. What can you do with a 500GB Serial ATA hard drive? You can store up to 107,000 songs or 85,000 photos.

Microsoft® Windows 8
This is a whole new user experience for Windows fans. Right from the Start screen, Windows 8 invites users to build a personalized environment for every need, discover apps for fun and essential tasks, and engage in the adventure of technology. Animated tiles provide timely updates on weather, social media, news and all things important to you. View and share photos from a single app, centralize all of your email accounts in one place, streamline managing messaging and social media contacts.

Works with touchscreen systems to enable tap, zoom, and swipe capabilities and it still works with the traditional keyboard and mouse so moving between windows and programs is as easy as a swipe or a click. Other cool new features include picture password, snap windows for easy multitasking, apps to simplify cloud access and storage for documents, your favorite music, and more.

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 mal-ware 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.

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 NE56R34u. 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.

Nero 12 Essentials
The complete media toolkit, Nero Essentials 12 gives you high-quality media capabilities to rip, edit, convert, play, and burn your media files. It's so easy to stream movies and music, or your own media collection to your computer, mobile devices, even XBOX, and your favorite big screen. This is the one media player that can handle it all supporting all current video formats such as MP4, AVi, AVC/264,3 GP, and MKV.
