Summary: I have had this computer for little over 2 years. It served me very well as office PC. With an added 128GB SSD it is blazing fast (any program starts in less than a second), but even the stock HDD was fast enough. When I installed it for the first time, I remember that I was amazed how quiet it was. I would definitely recommend this!
Summary: I bought this PC used although practically new for about 200$. The hard drive had given out on the previous owner (I don't know specifics). I love to troubleshoot so this PC was a godsend. It's quite sexy and the speakers are very useful for I don't use headphones. This PC is great, in my opinion. I have had more problems with Vista than I have had with this pc. But with the proper software updates from Microsft Update the PC is in top shape.
Amazing System , Great Performance and Price, not a gaming PC but a Great Media Center System.

Summary: Excellent System, using as Media Center in the Living Room, Plenty of power for Video and Audio Playback, not for Gaming!!! Upgraded dvd with a SATA Bluray drive, augmented the Ram from 4gb to 8gb, Bought a USB Wireless n300 adapter and Bought a wireless keyboard, all from amazon.com, I stream music and videos from the Internet and from my Server which is located upstairs next to the router. Installed XBMC on it and it works amazing, no errors, freezing or BSOD ever!!!.
Summary: I bought this computer from J&R Music and Computer World. The service from them is very good, I had no reason to call them after I ordered it. I live in Mexico and the computer arrived in perfect condition. After burning the restore DVDs I installed Windows 7 RC 64-bit (clean install) and is working very good (no trouble at all with the drivers). This computer qualifies for a free upgrade to Windows 7 when it becomes available.
Summary: Excellent, the compact size is a plus, plenty of connections and the HDMI to my HD monitor was a great selling point. Also customer service from vendor with prompt delivery. My first Gateway product, I should have checked them out several PC's ago!
Summary: This computer gives you more then just bang for the buck. I use Photoshop CS4 and After Effects CS4 for generating different projects I work on and this computer just smokes through the processes like nothing, the processor is powerful and this is a steal for the money. The best product I bought for the money in a long time.
Summary: I had a Gateway 750 Pentium 3 since believe it or not 1999. It finally could not keep up with the demands that I made on it. It was made for Windows 98SE and dial up 56K. I forced XP pro and XP Home on it and connected it to cable at 5 meg. After about a year and a half it just had had enough. It kept crashing and giving errors so I finally broke down and realized that I had to buy a new computer.
Summary: I have been using laptop exclusively (both home and work) for 5 years until this one. I love the small form, fast start-up and connection galore. The small form and light weight allow me to use this as both regular PC in my office upstairs and as Media Center PC in the living room downstairs. It does not look intrusive or out of place next to me 52" Sony LCD at all. HDMI carries both video and audio signal so it's great.
Summary: Hi, does anyone know how to put XP on this great machine, XP is more compatible with my older hardware, and VISTA isn't. Need XP drivers for the hard drive controller? The DVD eject has to be pressed a lot harder than a regular desktop, there are NO PCI slots only a PCI-E and PCI x1 slot, that's it. I have had the unit for two weeks, the recovery CDs didn't work and IE 7 will freeze every now and then, one of the reasons I would like to try XP.
