The Gateway NV59C50u is a mid-range model in the NV59C Series of mainstream, 15.6" consumer laptops. It is available with the most advanced processor available in a NV59C notebook, a Turbo Boost-enabled Intel Core i5-450M, but lacks the Blu-ray drive found in top-end models. It features 4GB of RAM and a 320GB hard drive. Most of its functionality is shared across the NV59C Series, including an HDMI output, built-in webcam and Wi-Fi, and LED backlighting, which increases brightness and helps boost battery life to 4 hours. A "social networks button" simplifies access to Facebook, Flickr, and YouTube.
