The Gateway NV79C34u is a mid-grade laptop designed specifically for everyday use, but also provides options suitable for multi-media, entertainment and casual gaming needs. The NV79C34u model includes the same wave pattern case and blue velvet body finish as the lower end models (NV79C17u, NV79C27u) as well as the same 17.3" HD widescreen LCD Display. The Gateway NV79C34u is equipped with an Intel Core i5-450M processor with stock clock speeds of 2.4GHz (3m L3 cache) which works in cooperation with Gateway Turbo Boost (Overclocking software) to increase the available clock to 2.66MHz. The NV79C34u is also equipped with 4GB DDR3 1066MHz dual channel memory, and an Intel HD graphics card that utilizes 128MB of dedicated system memory. Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit) comes pre-installed as an OS along with a full copy of Microsoft Office SE edition.

The Gateway NV79C34u includes additional features such as a 500GB SATA hard drive, a 4x Blu-Ray/DVD Multi Dual-layer optical disc drive, a unique social networking website keyboard shortcut, an HDMI output, high-definition audio, a Kensington security Lock slot, an integrated 1.3MP webcam and a multi-in-1 media card reader.

When compared to the lower end models it is worth restating that the NV79C34u model includes a larger hard drive, a faster and more powerful processor, and full Blu-Ray support which lower models do not have.
