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 in my life!!!
Summary: You probably want to stay away from it. Decent out of a box, but it is likely that buying this class machine you'll end up wanting to upgrade V-card, memory, HD'or what not, at some point. This when you can expect series of system failures. It can and will be crashed by nVidia card, RAM upgrade, gaming keyboard, even booting with headset plugged in multi-card reader USB will kill it..
Summary: UPDATE: Just got the replacment PC. It is working much better however, the memory scan on [...] 's website crashes this computer just as it did the last with the "BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH". ORIGINAL: I was disappointed with this system from the very begininning. After turning on the machine for the first time, it stopped in its process of verifying the hardware and system performance. After contacting Gateway, I was told to turn off the system and restart in Safe Mode.
