  • Is Gateway SX2840-01 still available?

    I looked for the Gateway SX2840-01 today both on-line and in person at the MicroCenter. All said "out of stock" The guy at the MicroCenter tried to sell me the Gateway SX2850-01.......but, it has less memory for more price, but is wireless. He said the SX2840-01 was "probably discontinued". Anyone know if it is still available. Thanks.
