Gateway DX4840-03e

22 September 2010
  • 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.
  • Pros: Attractive-enough case design; generally faster performance and better features than competing budget desktops, with only a minor price premium.
  • Cons: Lacks variety in external storage ports (no eSATA, no FireWire); slower than competing PCs on multithreaded tasks.
