"Problematic, not worth troubleshooting."1.0 starson by kutsche
Pros: Excellent appearance and small footprint-there are no cables other than power. Great for small area. Touchscreen worked well, sound system adaquate. Pentium T4300 Processor adaquate for EMail, business admin apps, internet, and light video.
Cons: Wireless keyboard/mouse didn't connect out of the box. Built-in 802.11 WPA security didn't sync. After downloading Windows 7 patches, Gateway's Touch application, a core component to the Touchscreen experience, locked up.
Summary: For a compact, low-end computer, this will be a great system for basic applications when the bugs get worked out. It's possible I got a lemon, but I'm not being paid as a beta tester. I'll be trying either the Dell or HP versions of this system next.
Wireless keyboard and mouse didn't connect out of the box. 60 minutes with Gateway on-line troubleshooting provided instructions that were not applicable to this computer. Built-in wireless 802.11 WPA security didn't interface with Netgear 802.11n router, I had to turn all security off to get it to work. Four other computers in the house have worked well with router on WPA. After downloading Windows 7 patches, Gateway's Touch application, a core component to the Touchscreen experience, locked up. Gateway service took 45 minutes just to register the new computer and was not able to troubleshoot problem after an hour - very dissapointing.
