Summary: I purchased this laptop as a cheap home solution. We have another PC for the kids and they use it constantly. I've found this laptop to be the perfect solution and been able to save considerably on software costs by partitioning the drive and installing Ubuntu Trusty Thar.
Summary: I love my Gateway. I have had MANY Laptops & this is by far my best Laptop..FAST no freezing no pop ups the anti virus that came with it new has worked Perfectly. Would not trade it for anything. I travel all over I see people on there laptops.
Summary: Great laptop for the money. It's pretty fast, boots quickly. Handles all of the programs I have installed. The only things I don't like is Windows 8, it doesn't have a caps lock indicator and the speakers aren't very loud.
Summary: This is a real good laptop. The only issue I have is that sometimes when the laptop is on battery power, the laptop will suddenly shut off completely. Then I will have to hit the power button to start it up again.
