Summary: First, I must say, this thing is HUGE! ( Room to grow... ) Very quiet. Sporty looking too, racing stripe red lights. I am _very_ impressed with its speed and the graphics. Nifty topside depression for cell phone or MP3 player. Nice standard keyboard. Mouse has side buttons which are a little too sensitive imo. Takes some getting used to. All around good deal, especially at sale prices I've seen.
Summary: I got my new gateway about 3 weeks ago now, and I've got to say I really enjoy it. It's a hard machine to beat for the money - and has lots of features and a wonderful case. The only thing I would even consider upgrading is the graphics card. Definitely a solid buy.
Summary: Pros: - fast - lots of memory - good looking Cons: - WiFi card has only 2.4GHz radio - Linux kernel crashes on power off / reboot (annoying, but not critical) I bought this PC to replace my 7-yeard old Dell-based Linux system, which more than started showing signs of old age. The new PC seems to work blazing fast, and I had no problems with it (other then small annoying problem when powering off the system, see below).
Summary: Bought this computer from Circuit City with high hopes. Read a few reviews about people that had problems right out of the box but disregarded them - oops! When I opened the box it was very apparent that the computer had been used. Two of the ports had yellow tape over them saying "Do Not Use - Defective". The packaging was very shoddy - looked like someone just threw it in the box. I called for an RMA - buyer beware......
Summary: The thing that grabbed me about this PC is the price, and it was running the 2nd Generation Intel Core i7. I thought maybe I can upgrade the graphics card and tweak this PC a bit. But from the looks of it, it seems like you can't really upgrade this PC easily on the inside at all. Also, this PC has a 450 watt power supply. A gaming PC with a 450 watt supply? Thanks Amazon for not putting that information up before buyers buy the product.
Summary: I have had this PC for 2 weeks now. I was looking for a fast machine that could handle Adobe photo processing software such as Photoshop, and Lightroom. The FX65850 is fast and handles everything I throw at it with ease and it does it quietly...no fan noise. I love the expansion bays where you can easily swap hard drives.
Summary: Perfect computer for the everyday user whether you are a gamer, tweeter, casual surfer, or just wanting to check your email. This system will do it all with ease. It's a wonderful off the shelf plug and play system. For the more advanced user; with a few minor tweaks you will be gaming or uploading your movies without any problems. I have to admit I am pleasantly surprised by this computer.
