Excerpt: When I bought this laptop, I have about stopped using my Dell pc. I love it's portability and the battery's staying power. I listen to alot of music on my computers and find that this laptop sounds nearly as good as my pc. I had it upgraded to 2MB and feel it was an awesome move, since it made a notable speed improvement. I do miss my multimedia keys a little, but not enough to give it up.
Excerpt: This is a great laptop for school and also good for casual gaming. It has the specs comparable to other laptops that would cost over $1000. the screen is bright and looks great. The casing is tough and durable. It never slowed down on me and I have not encountered any problem with it. Windows Vista is great and provides real-time security protection with it's Windows Defender.
Excerpt: The Gateway laptop is a great computer for the money. The wide screen makes viewing easy. The wider computer allows the keyboard more finger room. It is like typing on a regular keyboard. I am a transcriptionist and typing is my livelihood. I have never been able to use other smaller laptaps due to the keyboard. The Gateway is a good laptop for someone that types a lot.
Excerpt: Just got this last week, to replace an outdated 5-year old Dell laptop. So far, so great. Love the 15.4 in screen with the ultrabright feature. The keyboard is very ergonomic. Got it with Windows VIsta, too, which came standard. Only complaint would be that the 4 USB ports are all piled on top of one another on the right side of the laptop - a little tricky to plug everything in if you actually needed more than one port at a time.
Excerpt: I am not an expert on computers by any means, however I have been doing ON-Line school for the past three years, and I am on a computer daily. I bought this laptop about 6 months ago, and I am very pleased with the ease to have 9 sites, open at once. I did dislike VIsta operating systems at first, but all computers now have that program, so what are we to do, but learn it... This is a wonderful laptop for highspeed internet conection, and for the price!
Excerpt: gateway lap tops are a good value. love the bigger screen. it is cofie to use. has every thang i want except for a decent opperating system. has all of the hard ware needed except for not gnough memery. I like the features,take to much memery.
Excerpt: Not impressed with this laptop AT ALL. Very expensive, lower quality, not as fast as it should be, doesn't come equipped with standard windows. Still had to buy so many programs on top of the original expensive price. Don't recommend it.
Excerpt: * I love this notebook! It's reliable, compact and gets the job done! I am a Realtor and it is very important for me to travel light but at the same time have everything I need with me. The Gateway MT6840 Core Duo Notebook is perfect just for this! I would recommend it to everyone.
Excerpt: I love this little computer...I did upgrade the speed and it was well worth the added expense. i am currently in school and it performs anything i ask it to do. i am glad though that i bought it beofre Windows Vista came out because XP on it is very user friendly.
Very Great and has a lot of storage space for a laptop

Excerpt: I think that the Gateway MT6840 Laptop is a great and fast laptop also it has a great DVD burner and it is a very fast and affordable laptop. I use it for homework and it is very portible. The only con would be that it is 6 pounds so its a little heavy for a laptop. so all in all this laptop is great and i would recommend this to any one.
