Summary: I needed to replace an older computer and wasn't sure about the small form systems. I spent a lot of time comparing all the manufactureres and the specs and decided that this GATEWAY was the best for my needs. It has more than met my expectations. It fits right in with the FlatPanel TV and other "stuff" in the entertainment center and hook up was a piece of cake. The HDMI output is WONDERFUL. It is on a wireless N network in the house and the picture is FANTASTIC.
Summary: The computer arrived dead on arrival -- while it did power up, the computer could not start. We returned it to Amazon. Apparently they had the same problem as we received a full refund within days. Bad news - dead computer Good news - Amazon gave full refund without question.
Summary: Excellent system for the money. Fast. Not loaded with too much bloatware. Very sleek, compact and quiet. Only negative is the keyboard which has the cheap "chicklet" style keys which Apple is now using as well. I like the traditional keyboard feel better. It also has traditional ps/2 style mouse and keyboard connectors on it as well.
Summary: Confirming the false advertising here. Simply disregard the statement above - "Additionally, you can watch and record live television with the hybrid TV Tuner and do it all from your couch with included Media Center remote control.
Summary: I am not yet a computer expert, but this system, at this price is an great buy. The SX line by Gateway/Acer is a series of awesome cheap computers, but most people seem to discriminate when it comes to the processor, when they all perform pretty equally, and the average computer user would not be able to tell the one, two second differences.
Summary: false advertising .... NO TV TUNER and MEDIA CENTER REMOTE....came in my box today tiger direct thru amazon was the source i was afraid of that ... that its just like in the picture. tower keyboard mouse but if you read the detailed description they talk about the built in tv tuner you can control from the couch via included wireless remote...
Summary: I have been very satisfied with this computer. I brought it to my dorm because I wanted a small pc desktop and it works wonders. It has to be one of the quietest computers out there because I just put my ear up to it to hear it.
Summary: I owned a Gateway desktop for eight years, so I was excited to get a new one. This model proved to be fast, quiet and extremely easy to set up. It came loaded with Norton and the Gateway games console, so there was plenty of safe entertainment at your fingertips. But there is an issue with this model. I've tried two of them, so I know. I got a "blue screen error" and the system shut down while playing certain games.
