  • Summary: This thing has been a wrestle to fix up, but I managed to hook it up with an open case, 500w power supply, 8GB RAM, and a Radeon 6750 HD. It can now tackle any game released up to this point (2012/1/16) without any lag whatsoever, and handles all of my multitasking and such perfectly fine.
  • Pros: 1. PRICE. I got this for about $270, which is great considering the parts it has in it. 2. Storage, definitely. 1TB of memory gives you a lot to work with, and once again for a great price. More expensive models come with a lot less. 3. USB slots. This thing has a total of 9, 5 in front and 4 in ...
  • Cons: 1. The BIOS for the CPU is not accessible, so you won't be overclocking at all. 2. My computer only came with 4GB as opposed to six, but I managed to upgrade it to 8GB for only $20, contrary to the 6GB limit advertised here. 3. The case is TINY. Very very small, and not friendly at all to upgrade...

Wow. What a Waste of Time.

  • Summary: I know these units are re-certified, but I am very disappointed that a DOA unit could somehow be shipped to a consumer. It really makes me question how well these units are checked. Shame on Gateway/Acer and Newegg for selling them.
  • Pros: None.
  • Cons: Unit wouldn't even power on upon arrival. I bought this as a Christmas gift for my mom, and I'm definitely glad I checked it before I gifted it. Sent it back for a refund.

Don't buy this unless you want a headache

  • Summary: We ordered this as a sweet 16 gift for our daughter, it was the one she picked out not the one I would have chose mind you. When it arrived I opened the package and set it up as per usual methods with included keyboard, mouse, etc.
  • Pros: As per usual newegg.com ships fast and it arrives when they say it will other than that there were no pros!
  • Cons: 1. Missing Hard Drive 2. Missing Memory 3. Missing Sata data cables 4. Included a cheap mouse and logitech keyboard not even Gateway branded. 5. Case had dings and scratched as per usual with recertified.
