Very fast, quiet, and glitch-free.

  • Summary: I've been using this desktop intensively for the last month and, so far, there isn't anything to complain about. It's very fast and quiet. It's taken everything I've thrown at it.

Great Package in a small box

DPitt, J&R
17 September 2009
  • Summary: After reading review after review and having family doing the same. A family member ran across this machine and emailed it to me. It blew the others out of the water in reviews and price. It has everything that you need to do about anything you want. And the speed in which it does it all in.

GREAT- but can't upgrade graphics much

Possum, J&R
17 September 2009
  • Summary: The included Intel X4500 provides perfect graphics for a small screen. But if you're a gamer or have a HD LCD and are particular about image quality, this won't be the box for you. Intel made an upgrade-- the X4500HD-- to try to meet that need. The power supply provides only 220 watts, and ATX replacements are the wrong shape to fit the tiny box. Even Gateway doesn't sell an upgrade. So you're stuck shopping for a low-profile, low-wattage graphics card.

Great computer for almost everyone!

lp, J&R

  • Summary: If you are not a serious gamer, then this is a great computer for the money. Lots of ports and all the current functionalities. With a 240 GB hard drive, we'll probably run out of space in a few years, but we're good for now. Speedy machine now. If it starts seeming slow, can always upgrade the memory later. It has frozen up on us in IE, but not sure that is the computer's fault - probably the software.

  • Excerpt: Transitioning to a more powerful computer from the HP laptop I used since graduation, this Gateway caught my eye at the Best Buy website and seemed to good to be true. Quad core, 640 GB HDD, 4 GB DDR3 ram, it's quite a machine! Actually using it, albeit with the release candidate build of...

I LOVE this computer!!

Rae, J&R
14 September 2009
  • Summary: I absolutley love this computer!!! You can't beat it for the price! The only issue I've seen is it says that it is not completley compatable with Second Life which is a website I have to use for one of my classes but Second Life still works just fine! If you want a sleek, quiet and fast computer for a low price, then I highly recommend this computer to you or any of my family and friends!

Pretty Good

Toby, J&R
12 September 2009
  • Summary: Pretty good computer so far. No problems, runs smooth and very quiet. No problems with Vista so far and I have ordered the free Windows 7 upgrade through Gateway. I use the Microsoft Desktop 7000 Keyboard and Mouse set since the included keyboard and mouse are pretty bare bones (along with the included speakers) as well as my own Dell monitor. You're pretty much just buying the actual PC itself as the rest of the included peripherals are not that great.

Excellent Value

Gary, J&R
12 September 2009
  • Summary: Very easy, quick setup. Small footprint is definite plus and it was such a great value. It received great reviews. Keyboard seems cheap, but for ~$30 a replacement is no-brainer. Purchasing through JR was a breeze [...].
