Gateway DX4840-03e

CNET
19 April 2014
  • Summary: We have few reservations about this Gateway DX4840-03e. Even if it's not a particularly remarkable system, it's hard to argue that it falls short as a general purpose budget midtower. If that's all you're looking for, we can recommend this PC with little hesitation.
  • Cons: Lacks variety in external storage ports (no eSATA, no FireWire); slower than competing PCs on multithreaded tasks.

  • Excerpt: Great performance and a thoughtfully designed case make this machine a serious contender in the sub-$1,000 PC class.
  • Pros: Speedy for the price, Well-designed case, Wi-Fi connectivity, Room for upgrades
  • Cons: Lacks Blu-ray drive and other parts found on similar Gateway model, Overclocked PC from Velocity Micro offers more speed at similar price
