Summary: Ive had this for a year and it is awful slow has the configuring windows update all the time refreshes internet at bad times crashes yes i use it only until i save up for a windows 7 desktop ALSO I BOUGHT THIS IT WAS BRAND NEW!!!!!! SAVE YOUR MONEY FET WINDOWS 7 IT'S BETTER!!!!!!!
Summary: Still learning to use windows 8.1, but I really like it, best buy ever!!!! Really effective computer and affordable price, fast and small so u don't need too much space. ........even my little one start to use it, a lot of ways to play with, sometimes I is not enough the time I have to b in front of it.......
Summary: Do not buy it. Jmackjr said slow to load internet and that is an understatement. After Windows 8.1 was loaded the computer would hardly run. Windows 8 is pretty clunky anyway and 8.1 seems to not be compatible with this computer. Trying to put Windows 7 on it didn't work for me. It is back to Linux for me and never again a Microsoft product or Gateway computer.
Summary: I have one of these I bought new a few months back. I bought this refurbished one for another room because it had a great price. Runs beautifully, good as new. It's allows me to web surf fast because the pages load quickly. I had to put an wireless adapter on it, which I already had, to access my wi-fi router without an ethernet cable at a distance. Runs perfectly well with the wi-fi adapter too. Very satisfied with the product.
Summary: I bought this for my mom, she has always loved Gateway computers. She has trouble with the CD drawer opening vertically instead of horizontally, she has lost a lot of her sight so that is hard for her, other than that she is really enjoying this computer.
Summary: The computer was very nice, but my ISP could not connect this computer to the Internet. They came out to set up the connection and stated it is something wrong with the computer. I have to return it for something else. I liked the computer. It was small and fit easily on my desk. It also had nice bright display. Other than not being able to access the net, I would have been very happy with this product.
