Summary: I found the first five reviews here to be very accurate. The computer is blazing fast. Ultra quiet (I can barely hear it run), the speakers are chincy, and there are no run lights for the hard drive on the case. I get a 3.5 windows experience index and that's strictly due to the lack of graphics.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Never Freezes, Powerful, Quiet, Versatile
Summary: I bought this computer to replace my 8 year old Dell. I spent weeks looking at computers and picked this one due to its features and price. I wanted a quad core because I edit pictures and like to multitask. Once I set it up it did not disappoint, I was ripping CD's to the music library while editing photos and searching the net at the same time. Never once has it slowed down.
Summary: First one had a bad ethernet connection but J&R took care of it and Gateway was helpful too. The system is quiet and seems very fast - able to run two or more applications at once with little to no lag time. Only problem I've had is the mouse locks up occasionally after it goes in to sleep mode. Probably a Vista thing.[...]Only other negative is that the WIndows Office package is for 60 days.
Pros: Adequate Storage, Easy To Setup, Easy To Use, Fast, Good Gateway support, Sleek Design
