Unlike its peers from Lenovo falling in the same genre, Gateway NV55S05u lacks modern wireless technologies such as wireless display 2 (WiDi 2.0) and WiMAX; however, the manufacturer remembered to cater for network needs by integrating both WiFi and Ethernet. As expected from most laptops in the industry, Gateway NV55S05u features a HDMI and VGA video outputs cementing the element of desktop replacement. In addition, it houses a multimedia card reader and a webcam to tackle your video chatting needs.
