Summary: I have updated the Ram from 6GB to 12GB, changed the HDD(now is 2nd drive for storing files) to a SSD( sandisk 256), and bought a new GFX card. This baby is a beast! I got it 2010 and still use it today.
Summary: Have had the DX4840-07 for ~ 5 months now. Runs smooth as silk. Great for intensive accounting & photo software. Had my last Gateway for 8 years before upgrading. Love Gateway. Never had any problems. Great service from Amazon.
Summary: I have a 52" HD TV that I connect to with one HDMI cable & signed up with Netflix. It does a great job with movies. I enlarge the page for e-mail, so it can be read at a distance. I use a wireless mouse & keyboard. I both stream & order by mail the newer movies. ( my problem, too much to watch.)
Summary: I saw the two previous negative reviews and was concerned but realized that out of the many who had bought it, only two complained. Having a previous positive experience with Gateway, I took the risk. It runs just as expected and advertised and is a great computer.
Summary: I needed to replace a 3 year old office desktop with a noisy fan (which I will repair when the transfer is complete.) The Gateway SX2850-33 got a great review from CNET but it seemed cramped, so I looked further, and this model met my needs.
Summary: I actually bought this because of my recent problems with Dell system quality, order fulfillment and customer service. I found good reviews about this system on cnet, so I gave it a try. It sets up easily, is super fast and super quiet. My husband loves it.
