The Gateway NV79C37u is a mid-grade laptop designed specifically for portable multimedia use; it fits right in with Gateway's lower end NV79 models in body design and simply improves on the overall system specs to provide a more powerful machine. The NV79C37u is equipped with a 17.3" HD LCD display supported by an Intel Core i5-450M 2.4GHz processor and 4GB DDR3 dual channel RAM. The Gateway NV79C37u also features the same Intel HD graphics chipset with 128MB dedicated system memory for video processing as the lower end models. Additional NV79C37u features include a Kensington Security lock slot, a unique social networking site keyboard shortcut, a fully integrated webcam and an HDMI output.

The Gateway NV79C37u also includes additional features such as a pre-installed copy of Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit), the mobile Intel HM55 Express chipset, a 500GB hard drive, an integrated Multi-in-1 media card reader, full HD audio support, an 8x Multi-DVD double layer optical drive, an integrated 1.3MP webcam, and a 6 cell Lithium Ion battery which provides up to 3.6 hours of use.

The Gateway NV79C37u includes the same basic features and specs as lower end models, however it is worth noting that the NV79C34u can be had for about $100 more and includes the same processor, memory and storage options but also includes Blu-Ray disc support.
