Summary: I think is a great deal! I've had mine over a year with zero problems. For the price you cannot beat this deal, especially if you aren't a Windows 8 fan. You can always upgrade to Win 8 if you like it, but I'm not sold on it yet for a non-tablet platform.
Summary: I did not buy this on amazon but i will give you an idea of this computer. This computer stays fast for a very long time and i love this computer. It has a video camera and a microphone so you can use video camera chat for any program. I would definetly recommend this to you. if your looking for a computer that is a good brand and lasts along time this is definetly a computer for you.
Summary: After 3 months and 10 days of using my Pc ,, some keys stopped working, I called the support, the brilliant guy told me i have to restore the computer because some keys may not be balanced, I told him this is a hardware problem and no need to restore,, anyway he insisted, I had no choice, I did restore it.
Summary: Upon arrival everything was fine. Few days ago, lap top mouse started overheating and would not click. I had to use optical mouse to work. I did not wanted to deal with it, and also I do not know what other possible troubles may occur so I returned it. I did not order the same one, thinking that nobody can guarantee me that one will be working properly, so I went with Toshiba. Returning was very simple. I am waiting for money to be returned on my account.
Summary: I have to say this is a great little laptop for the low price of 249.99 at Target and with the "red card" they took an additional 5% off. I can't say enough good about it for the money. It has 4GB of DDR3 Dual Channel memory for fast everything! A 1.7Ghz Dual Core processor is plenty fast enough for everything i do daily on this laptop. Youtube videos are crystal clear and in HD thanks to the Intel HD card with 128 of dedicated memory and up to 1700 shared.
Summary: I just bought one at target a few days ago and have been using it. The price is great $250 but I will be exchanging it for a diffrent brand. This laptop is nice but is REALLY SLOW speacially on you tube. My old laptop is 7 years old window XP and I can watch videos faster on it. Also the speakers are VERY WEAK. You couldn't use to play music for the whole room. It's barely laoud enough when it's in front of you.
Summary: We picked one up last weekend since my wife needed a laptop replaced while we were on a trip. Stumbled on the deal and jumped on it considering it had HDMI and a web cam so she can skype and plug easily into our large tv. Web cam is dead on first start-up. Hardware is not detected at all, so there's obviously a hardware issue. Now farther along on our trip, there's no Target anywhere near to return it. Call Gateway and the "support" is laughable.
Summary: Also got this for $250 from Target. I only got it since I had the top end model since 2010. The only difference between the two is the CPU one Intel this one and the other is AMD. Both dual core 2.0GHz vs 1.7GHz in this one. But the L2 cache is 2MB instead of 1MB in the one I had. Same 4GB of RAM but this one can be upgraded to 8GB. Both have the same LED/LCD HD panel. Mine has optional Blue-Ray player that gives you higher contrast panel very deep blacks.
Summary: You really can't go wrong with this deal at Target. We're talkin' Win 7 64 bit, 3 USB ports, HDMI, cardreader, 4 gig ram, 320 gig HD, 15" display, 6 cell batt, Intel CPU, DVD burner. I'm continually amazed at these prices and values. Picked one up for the in-laws so grampa could have his own laptop! For web browsing, pictures, and the basics, you don't need to spend over $350 with today's prices.
