Summary: I've had my laptop for about a year now and i love it. It's fast, has lots of memory, and very stylish. I've watched many videos on it and burned several cds, and everything is crisp and clear. I'm very happy with this purchase, especially since i researched about 50 laptops before i bought this one.
Summary: This replaced a 4 yr old Gateway notebook workhorse that's been 100% dependable..I wore the letters off the keys and never had a hardware problem. This one is faster with a bigger better screen, has a lo-res webcam, and runs much cooler. It also came with free versions of Word and Excel basic, though you loose some screen space to mandatory ads. Win 7's ability to display multiple windows on a uniformly split screen is great.
Summary: i bought this item 2 month ago, and well im very pleased and content with it, came in perfect condition, and brand new with all of the above specified. i would defenetly buy again same one. im checking every day for its price to decrease cause i got it for a lot less than 670 something.
Summary: ok so it seems you rather get a good one or a bad one...i got a good one. it works fine and seems to handle games like bf bad company 2 and has some other features. comes in nice box and is overall a good buy for the price. dont buy a mac this is the real deal.
Summary: Excellent purchase, great product for the price. No problems with shipping. As for the Windows 7, a person who has typed for over 25 years and used Microsoft word since the beginning - the subtle differences are annoying and frustrating. Creating documents such as research papers have minor but important differences when printed. The margins and formats are not always compatible with printers.
Summary: I bought this, on april 7th a couple days after delivery, I turn it on, and it was very slow, I thought it was a problem with first start, but after that freezes all the time, and sometomes it doesn't shut down. On the second day, blue screen came up and it never start again. Gateway will check it tomorrow.
Summary: The laptop came defective with the following problems: * upon starting laptop, the monitor would come on only 95% of the time * certain keys did not work properly (particularly the 'm' key) * the power cord plug had to be forced in (as if it were the wrong size) I sent it back (within the 30-day guarantee), and I'm waiting for a refund.
