"Mine was on sale $985 a great buy with no problems"
14 November 2011
Pros: Simple design , quite , hideaway items , everything worked right out of the box ! Easy to upgrade ! Extra HD storage nice front loader with hideaway cover ! FAST ! i7 processor , 6 gigs of ram , great graphix gard
Cons: Power supply was minimal for unit and only lasted alittle over a year , regular screws in the back pannels , other than these 2 items , no other cons on my unit
Pros: This MOBO, unlike many other i7 prebuilt computers out there has true tri-channel RAM.. 6 slots, the two extra drive bays are handy, if you happen to have another HD. On the whole I am very satasfied with the speed and preformance of this computer.
Cons: The specifications on Gateways sight says that the Power Supply is 500w, this is inacurate on my system, looking in the case its only a 475w. When adding a drive to the extra bays the bios default boot order puts them first.
Cons: The keyboard and the speakers are of the cheape and worst I've seen in a desktop. Initially,The pop-up card reader didn't pop up. Now it won't close. The Windows Mail program failed after two days. I've had to conclude there is a software problem..
