Gateway recommends Windows.

Productive

A notebook made for anytime, everywhere use: That's the Gateway® NE Series Notebook. It’s outfitted with well-tested technologies that let you handle every need any day might bring. The dynamic usability of Windows 8 and optional touchscreens further enhance your performance. The latest high-output, low-power processors from Intel® and AMD offer up to quad-core power and let you accomplish more. Plus they’re ideal for mobility because they increase battery life.

Entertaining

The Gateway® NE Series Notebook maximizes your enjoyment of movies and multimedia. The Ultrabright™ screen—HD or Full HD—is brilliant and LED backlit, supported by integrated or discrete graphics. Just pop your DVDs into the optical drive and relax. You can also use the HDMI® port to extend your viewing experience to a digital monitor or big-screen TV. Stereo speakers deliver fine sound, and the media control keys make everything easy.

Social

Connect to popular sites like Facebook, Flickr, Twitter and YouTube™ at the tap of a single button with the social networks key. Want some face time? Enjoy conversing with friends and family in high resolution with the HD webcam. A combo audio jack makes using a stereo headphone or microphone easy. And go wired or wireless: The Gateway® NE Series Notebook provides Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11b/g/n and Bluetooth®.

Safe

Your data and memories are secure thanks to the M-Disc Ready™ drive on every 15.6” NE Series. The M-Disc Ready™ drive etches files onto a rock-like data layer in your M-Disc™ media. That creates a permanent physical record immune to the erosion of the organic dye layer used in regular DVDs, which can lead to failure within five years. M-Discs hold 4.7GB and can be burned with many popular programs.

Easy Recovery

There’s never an emergency: You’re safe and secure with Gateway Recovery Management. Easily create disks for default backup and for backing up your applications and drivers—and then just as easily restore your system and reinstall the apps and drivers. Plus, Gateway Recovery Management makes it easy to manage password settings, recover from the hard drive and recover from your factory recovery disk.
