Summary: Have had about a year and runs like a clock! Quiet. fast and will not bog down with almost anything! Use with FSX flight Simulator and does very nice with it! There are more poweful I-core 7's but this is a great value! I do not know why it is apparently out of production?
Summary: I have been reading through the reviews and there may be some real isues and then again maybe not. I bought a Refurb. When it arrived, the first thing i noticed was that the Hdd dock was nothing but an empty hole. I hooked it up anyway, and there was a problem with the power button.
Summary: I purchased this PC as a refurbished PC. I had been planning on building a PC as I have done with my last 4 PCs. I live in Panama and could not touch a PC of this quality for less than $2,000. So far it has exceeded all of my expectations.
Summary: I was very excited about this computer, but after a week suddenly was damaged, it came with a defective hard drive(almost every one come with), if you don't update the firmware it will fail like mine and you will loose all your data, Gateway support really sucks, is the worst service support I used...
Summary: I have a refurbished version of this machine. For the price(new or refurb) you can't beat the performance of this machine. Mine came with a 500w PS and the 1gb ati 4850 video card. Out of the box The only problem was a blinking cursor in windows explorer.
Gateway Support is lousy, system is not bad for the price

Summary: This is a nice system with good features for the price. The problem I have is a bad video card - reloaded the drivers from Gateway, ATI, and the system restore and still could not get it to work properly. It took two days for support to get back to me and their suggestion: Reload the drivers!
