Overall very pleased with this choice.

The keyboard dips down slightly when you press the keys but it doesn't bug me, the floating key full range keyboard works very well.

I spent two weeks browsing every model and brand of laptop out there to find the best value for the money I was looking to spend. I wanted great specs at a great price, and well, I succeeded. This laptop has the best specs out there for the amount of money that you'd be spending.

First off, the processor. It is a dual-core processor, but the new i-series processors have hyper-threading, so your computer treats it as if it were a quad-core. Therefore, this thing is FAST. It is one of the highest i3 processors, so it is the same as a low-end i5 (specifically the 450M). The only thing it lacks compared to the low-end i5's is TurboBoost (which provides a small boost to your clock speed when in need, but most of the time you'll never need it). The computer boots up very quickly. I can open up programs instantly and I've tested out how it runs with a CPU monitor on. I ran a graphics-intensive game, Skype, 5 tabs on Google Chrome, and opened a High-Def movie, and my CPU usage was at 35%... The RAM and processor will be plenty for every-day computer usage and more.

The graphics card is great. It is an upper-tier graphics card, and has 1gb of dedicated graphics memory. Now, it's not going to run insane games like Crysis, but I have run several full-screen games on high-detail and they look wonderful. the Nvidia graphics card also allows you to adjust the display in a number of ways, one lovely feature being "digital vibrance" that you can adjust to make colors look brighter and richer.

The display is a TFT LCD display. What isn't mentioned is that this laptop actually has an LED-backlit display (you can find it on the product description on Gateway's website). It also says 15.6" HD LED LCD on the sticker on my computer if you don't believe me.

I was hoping to spend between four and five hundred dollars on my next laptop. I can't tell you how many models I looked at on just about every website that sells computers. I must've read a thousand reviews for different computers. Long story short: when I accidentally came upon this model and configuration, I finally concluded that the upside of going over my budget was just too big to ignore this computer. I'm glad I did.

For the price, this is simply the best laptop out there. The NVIDIA graphics card won't blow you away, but it is more than enough to play pretty much any game and handle 1080p HD video with perfect ease. The processor is excellent, and the 500 GB hard drive is nice. It took just a few short minutes to transfer all 10 gb of my music. It has a sharp look and it may take some adjustment for some people but I love the keyboard (the numpad is a must for me). Kudos to Gateway for including basically no bloatware at all. The social network key is stupid but it's tucked away in the corner and I've already forgotten it's there. The screen is beautiful. All is well. I'm telling you, get this model.

I've had this laptop for 5 days now and love this thing. Definitely believe it's the best laptop out there for the money. As the other reviewers did, I also spent weeks looking around trying to find the best value in terms of computer speed and ability to play games for around $600. This computer flies with the i3 processor. You can throw any number of applications at it and the 4 cores stay under 50% usage. It comes with 1GB dedicated video ram so you can play 3D games no problem. I run Starcraft II on total high settings and average 20-35 fps depending on the in game action. When unplugged and at full charge it says I have about 3.2 hours of life in power save mode. I think the only thing I would change is the positioning of the usb ports. When using an external mouse it would be nice if they were farther up on the sides or in the back somewhere. The build quality of the laptop itself is average. The keyboard dips down slightly when you press the keys but it doesn't bug me, the floating key full range keyboard works very well. Overall I'm very happy with this purchase and would definitely recommend it to anyone.

I've only had this laptop for a couple of days and love it. It replaces a four year old Gateway laptop that is now being adopted by my wife (and is still working flawlessly). This new one (presumably manufactured for Gateway by Acer) looks great, runs like greased lightning, and has superb graphics (due to the much upgraded video card). The limited Microsoft WORD teaser program is the only disappointment. Since it has only a very few fonts, it made a mess of my 1500+ word files I transferred to it with regard to formatting and font. I have just purchased the full Office 2010 and hope that it is better than this. Since I bought this laptop (and waited a week for Super Saver delivery), the price has steadily climbed. Better grab it fast before it goes even higher. An i3 with a 1GB dedicated videocard, 500GB harddrive, webcam, HDMI--wow, nice package.

After months of research and hours of debate between my professional husband and tekkie college son --- I bought this laptop. It is light, fast and has amazing graphics. All very important to my job. I am a designer who updates homes and it is imperative that I show large, high quality photos of my work to potential clients. This is all that I needed at an excellent price. The only drawback for me is the keyboard. There is something that I must accidentally hit from time to time that deletes large areas of type. Still working through that, but overall am very happy with my investment.
