"Most of the Worst"0.5 starson by psone29
Pros: Nice blue light for a button on front of tower
Cons: Bootleg (immitation) software/Hardware installed, Monitor Small, Speakers too large, sound crummy, the do not provide any software disks but the charge you for them, Tech support bad
Summary: I bought this system for extreme gamming, and it crashed on Need for Speed Underground 2, I wonder why??? maybe because it had a bootleg Raedon Gfx card from Mexico installed in it? It was suppose to arrive with MS Word, MS Works and Napster 2.0 among other software titles, none of which was legal copies I could register without an authentication number, Gateway refused to provide me with legal software disks, software books and system documentation, (obvious they were bootleg programs) the system arrived damaged and after talking with 35 different tech support people Gateway still refused to send me another system, they overcharged me on the original sale, the sales people went crazy with my credit card billing me for things I did not get with the system, and other things I did not even order, the Gateway tech support people make it a frustrating experience, they are all unknowledgeable about the products they sell and insist on making you call a tech support number that is either long distance in SD or charges your credit card $2.90 a min. Tech support people become rude when you confront them about the systems problems or the bootleg versions of MS office that I ordered. I sent the whole system back for a refund after my 55th call to tech support on the second day of having this system. If you want to avoid a problem and overcharges on your credit card DO NOT BUY THIS SYSTEM, what they say comes with the system DOES NOT!!!! the thing is assembled in Mexico with Bootleg or inferior parts.
and it you want this thing to just play DVD's trust me you are better off just buying a TV and a DVD player, this thing is awful for DVD entertainment. Do not buy this thing, I suggest you look at other computers from more reputable companies.
