This is my second Gateway desktop. Not much over a year ago a model like this was selling for about $200 more. Yet, now, you get a 64 bit system (crunches data much faster), a quad core that hardly anything can slow down, big hard drive, and a good quality of design and construction.

Also important is the quality of Gateway support: the one question with my previous model was handled via a chat session with a tech who knew what he was talking about and was very professional.

The Vista SP1 which it ships with has been a pleasant experience. It's best to discount all the dissing it gets and just see how well it works in practice. There is a learning curve if you are coming from XP, but it is worth getting to know. I like it. I probably would like Apple's Leopard operating system, too, but I don't care to pay anywhere from two to six times as much for their machines.

I just surf the web, do light photo and video processing, and watch a movie on it sometimes. For these tasks this machine is overqualified - a dual core machine would do about as well. But, how about a few years from now? A quad core machine may well be necessary for these or similar tasks then.

A little confession: I took my previous Gateway desktop apart to replace the motherboard with a newer type. I was impressed with the quality of design and construction. The Apple desktop which starts at around $2500 would impress me much more, but I don't need its particular qualities for what I do with a computer.

You ought to know that the setup of this machine was the sweetest, most trouble free computer installation I have ever done. It just goes out and does practically everything for you. That is thanks to Vista and Gateway's well thought out systems.

Bottom Line: The DX4200-09 is an excellent computer for the price.

I have 3 computers in use in our family of varying makes and ages. I tend to replace one when it gets to 5-6 years of age. Normally I plan and save for major purchases like a computer well in advance.

I was unable to do that this time around as my five year old computer's motherboard died unexpectedly. I take work home fairly often so waiting was not an option (nor is taking another family member's computer way an option for similar school/work issues).

Due to timing reasons, my budget was $500, no where near what I usually budget & save up for, so I did not have high expectations. I went to several stores and this is the best machine I could find for the price. I paid $470 plus sales tax. I never buy the extended warranty as my background would make it wasteful spending. I did not need a monitor, speakers, keyboard, or mouse. (You do get speakers, keyboard and mouse with this computer however I did not use them and they are not part of this review.)

This computer runs very well out of the box. Set up is easy. The on board video is typical of its kind in that it is adequate as long you do not do anything video intensive. 4 GB of RAM is the sweet spot for Windows Vista as there is very little software as of the date I am writing this that can use more. Only 2 of the 4 memory slots are used so adding RAM, if ever needed, is easy. The hard drive is large and reasonably fast (640GB @7200 RPM). The power supply is primitive and you will be replacing it if you perform any upgrades to this computer - it does not even have a standard 6 pin video card power connector!

As a previous reviewer point out, this isn't the fastest processor available, but unless you streaming video, will you care? The machine comes with 4GB of memory, which to me is more important than the processor speed. The fact that the processor is a Quad-core, means that you virus protection software etc.. will not interfere with you daily use of the computer.

It also comes with Vista ultimate. I was regretting the day I would buy a Vista based computer, but its not been bad and with the free upgrade to Windows 7, I won't have to worry about it for too long. The other included software is MS Works. Everything else included is trialware.

The machine included 4GB main memory, 640GB HD, built-in graphics ( but did include VGA and HDMI interfaces), a keyboard, mouse, pair of speakers ( not real good ), network card, DVD.

Gateway website and support seems to be heading down hill since purchased by Acer. The bug fix program which was on my computer was removed after installation because the program was no longer supported. The Windows 7 upgrade website was terrible and error prone though I eventually got through it.

I purchased it because I didn't want to speed above $400. I was looking for a desktop for the kids and me to share, and one that would last for 3+ years. And I think I found it. I could have spent 500-700, but since I don't play graphic extensive games, why bother. And the processor speed is enough. I'm unlikely to add more internal components so the issue with the power supply is not a big deal.

I priced around. I originally wanted to speed under $300, but I wanted at least 3GB of RAM, and a Dual-Core. This computer is priced very close to the bottom, but gives a few extras, like the additional memory, larger hard drive, Vista Ultimate ( not basic) etc..

The only thing I've added was a USB Wireless Network Card from Netgear. No issues with it or the computer so far after two weeks.
