For those looking for bang for their buck, the Gateway NV79C49u is certainly a great option. Sporting a large 17.3-inch screen with a 1600x900 resolution and a 2.53 GHz Intel I5-460M and 4GB of DD3 RAM, this Gateway is quite the little powerhouse. It beautifully displays movies, whether on that large screen, through HDMI output or by Intel’s Wireless Display (WiDi) technology. With just a 6-cell included by default, its battery life leaves a little to be desired at 3.5 hours, and it could use a Blu-Ray drive, but at a price under $700 it delivers substantial performance without the substantial price.
