Summary: I had read reviews saying how there computer was defective and it was not returnable and etc The gateway computer I recieved was new and I had no issue with the computer what so ever It works well with playing videos supporting adobe flashplayer and I will be useful to me in college..
Summary: So far so good. Much quieter fan that my laptop. Doesn't have a built in speaker though. I didn't have the learning curve everybody is talking about with Windows 8 because I watched youtube tutorials before I got it!
Summary: Gateway was once a decent brand for computers. Given the terrible quality of this PC, it is clear that this is no longer true. I expect a budget PC to be of poor physical quality. I don't expect it to crap out in three months.
Summary: Works very well in all respects. Would recommend to anyone who wants a full sized desktop model. The Windows 8 would not have been my original preference but now I am used to it and I like it fine.
Its a good computer I guess ,If all the SCREWS were installed in in the motherboard

Summary: I received (2) brand new units, still SEALED In their factory boxes with the SCREWS floating around inside the computer . They were packed in factory packing and boxes sealed.The computers DID NOT have a factory seal on the back cover. ITS NOT THE FAULT OF Amazon its the Model ,which was not finish from the factory. But after all said and done , I can not trust it since it suppose to be NEW. I MUST REPACK IT and return it. I paid $400.00 for it.
Summary: My wife and I love it compared to our last Gateway GT5404 It is super quite you don't even know that it is on. I would recommend buying a touch screen for the new windows 8 or 8.1 for all those people complaining about it.
