I Like This Laptop, but the speaker is not loud enough .....
30 August 2010
Summary: This laptop is light and excellent. But two things I don't like : 1. Speaker is not loud enough ,a little disappointed. 2. Somehow I don't like the mouse pad it's designed. Perhaps I am not getting used to it.... Other than that .....it's a great laptop and great buy.
Summary: OK, I spent $350. on it, and it has crumby Vista in it. But I bought a 3-pack of Windows 7 and have the new 64 bit version installed. It's a very good machine; however, know that WOOT just had it (new) for $200. Use your sekhel, and have patience if you want it. I do enjoy using it.
Summary: I picked up this laptop on a passing visit through the US, earlier this month. I purchased it based on some quick, but diligent research and felt satisfied with the cost vs value reviews previously posted on this site. However, after successfully receiving this product and having some satisfactory use of it for a few days without any major problems, apart from the usual Windows Vista difficulties, I discovered that the laptop would not WAKE UP anymore from its sleep or...
Summary: I received my Gateway 1803u laptop a few weeks ago. It had 32-bit Windows Vista Home Premium operating system installed. Since I already purchased a 64-bit Windows 7 Professional upgrade disc, I installed it on the Gateway after making back-up discs for the 32-bit Vista drivers. The 64-bit upgrade went smoothly. An external DVD drive is needed to install the Windows 7 Professional upgrade disc.
Summary: I decided to go with this item because at the time of purchase $349 for a larger netbook with a better processor, 720p, HDMI out and up to 4GB ram supported is a deal. 1. Out of the box, its running vista home 32 bit. there was a free upgrade to windows7, but it has since expired. 2. not too much bloatware 3. Kind of an issue: recovery discs, they can only be made with an external DVD.
Summary: i was very anxious to use my new notebook... And then the most unplesant suprise... It wont power on... Well, it does but the display doesnt work. The manufacturer's warranty will cover it, but the least they can do is to is to inspect the goods before shipping them.
Summary: I am more than happy with the Gateway EC18. Before I got this, I spent a lot of time searching for a netbook to use in my classes, and for browsing the web. With the Gateway EC18 and the Core Solo processor I can do that and a lot more in less time. The 11.6" screen is short enough for portability and big enough so that you don't have to strive to view web pages or videos.
Summary: I bought this computer to be more mobile in my travels. I always felt that the netbook was too small, slow and basic for me. This turned out to be just the right size in terms of the screen, the hard drive and the speed of the processor. It is a bit slower (11.2 in., not 10.3) than a regular-sized notebook, but it does everything else just fine. The bettery life is great, over 6 hours and the size is great for traveling.
Summary: Bought this netbook for use as a mobile computer for frequent internet viewing. Does a fantastic job: display screen phenomenal, webcam perfect, and computing power adequate for searching the internet, e-mail, documents, etc. I would recommend it for this purpose.
Summary: I've had this laptop for a couple months now. I went with this one over a netbook to get a little more power. I've been very happy with what it provides. Main purpose for purchase was to have something portable, and with an HDMI output. Advantages It is only 3 lbs (1/3rd the weight of my 17" laptop), so it is easy to take around the house, or for travel. The wireless N is great, so I am able to network my computers, and stream video between them.
