Piece of CRAP

Dennis Sirbaugh, Amazon
13 October 2011
  • Summary: I ordered this for my son in law. This was supposed to be a nice gift for him to do his gaming on. And turns out all it does is glitch and freeze up. I don't have the patience nor time to send it back so i am upgrading and spending more money for a decent desktop tower.

every day task

Mario Arellanes, Amazon
21 January 2011
  • Summary: This product would have gotten a 5 star but it got 4 because there is no recovery disk included. The Literature is minimal and all data regarding this product can only found online. I do love the quickness of the product.

Everything Great Until You Need Support

Fred in Wa, Amazon
29 December 2010
  • Summary: I've been a Gateway customer for over 20 years. Their machines have been built so well I never needed support. However, I bought a new machine in September and two days ago (less than four months) the power supply went completely dead. Went through Costco to Gateway support.
