"Buy This Computer if You're Feeling Lucky..."1.5 starson by dukeofwagner
Pros: This machine is definitely an excellent performer for the money...when its performing! I see that a bunch of people have had great luck with it, so if you're a gambler, roll the dice and give it a try. Looking for reliability? Look elsewhere.
Cons: The machine crashed within hours of getting it home and would not boot. I had problems with the sound. Support service was less than useless. I tried to install a third party sound card in the expansion slot to fix problem and it didn't fit.
Summary: I cant recommend this machine and feel burned by CNet giving it such a high rating. Crashes, non-existent technical support, horrible sound and shoddy fit-and finish. I'll never buy Gateway again.
