"small yet powerful"5.0 starson by aqnguyen87
Pros: amazing media editing software included, a macbook pro in a box
Cons: none so far
Summary: Rich Brown continues to review PCs without rating what software comes with it, I think the reason why he could only test the gateway on two benchmarks is because he spent the better part of the time uninstalling the bloatware on that windows os. All macs come with iLife, a media suite that contains a movie, music, and web editing program along with a nice photo management tool called iphoto, windows tried to match this with windows essentials, and failed, which is why they did not include them in any of the windows 7 releases, and believe me, there isn't a line building around the corner to download them... more points: 1) the lack of a blu-ray drive does not limit the Mini from playing back HD-content, with itunes offering HD movies on their store, its easy for ANY computer to access HD content, 2) iCore 2 duo vs AMD neo/x2/II, the core 2 WILL come out on top... 3) the analog ports RICH was talking about? actually one of them is a DIGITAL OPTICAL OUTPUT which you can hook up directly to any HD receiver... 4) RICH forgot to mention the fact the gateway needs anti-virus protection software which can cost up to $70/ year for a internet security suite... 5) APPLE is currently the only manufacturer that offers a service center (Apple Store) that can fix/repair/replace your product on the SPOT, for everyone else you have to send/ship/call in to get service, yeah RICH you can keep the 270 phone support, i would much rather walk into the store and get help one to one, you can go ahead and enjoy talking to the automated phone support line, good luck with that...
