I bought this computer from Fry's Electronics today for significantly less than advertised on Amazon or anywhere else for that matter. I picked it up for $315.00 USD with tax, so it seems like I got a really good deal.
I'm very impressed with the overall feel and use of the computer, 4 Gigs of ram is a huge plus. The 500 GB drive is great for all the music and video storage needs of today.
Seems like it has good battery life so far, not so sure about the 4.5 hours as advertised, I would say it's more along the lines of 3.5 but it all depends on what you do with your computer. Still, I can't complain! The only downside is that it's a Windows 8 machine and windows 8 is designed for touch screen, which this computer does not have. Also, this computer does not include a windows or system restore cd, so if your computer crashes then you better have access to a windows cd or you're in trouble.
I would say shop around for the best price because they seem to vary from store to store.
The only downside is Windows 8..... I am not a fan so far of the Windows 8 system, it seems to be geared towards social media and not so much a easy to use operating system. If you have the patience to fight with the operating system changes and basically re-learn how to use windows then this is for you.
I would definitely recommend this PC to anyone.
After sending it back TWICE, the problem persists. Gateway refuses to refund or replace, even though the second time it was in for a repair they couldn't reproduce the problem. Amazon says that my window of opportunity to return the item expired. (Hey, I've been trying to get it repaired!!)
Third time's a charm, right? Maybe not.
The first time I sent it back they replaced the hard drive.
The second time I sent it back they couldn't reproduce the problem (they left it on for 24 hours), so they returned it with no changes.
The third time I sent it back they ... wait for it ... replaced the hard drive. Yes, the same thing that didn't fix the problem the first time. Folks, something is telling this computer to shut itself down and I'm pretty sure it's NOT the hard drive.
Have I mentioned that I'LL NEVER BUY ANOTHER GATEWAY PRODUCT AGAIN?
Final update: After the 4th return (this time they replaced the motherboard/CPU), we got it back on Friday, unpacked it Saturday, and within an hour it failed again. Back to Gateway's customer service to fill out a report. Monday I get an email from Gateway saying they can't process our request, and they give an 800 # to call.Read more ›

Very good laptop, but the frame around the screen cracks easily. Its good for personalization, as decals are easily applied and removed. Stickers work too. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Lauren

Good laptop for the money. Touchpad was messed up from the start and the battery life is pretty bad, but it has been good to me for a while now.Published 8 months ago by Rello
