"Lots of Problems"1.5 starson by philkon
Pros: When it works, it works well.
Cons: LOTS of minor problems. DVD burning failed 33%. Using multiple external HDD = numerous problems. The easy-swap bays often do not read. No manuals included and none online for this model. Asking for help was declined unless I paid $99 per question.
Summary: I have returned this computer to gateway for repairs 5 times between July and November. The repair people were friendly, but could often not duplicate problems on the first attempt.
For this price, this computer had had too many problems. The lack of support of precise manuals was extremely frustrating.
I would not recommend getting this computer.
