I just purchased this product at BB yesterday, and I couldn't be happier! This was one case where BB had a better price than Amazon, $599.99. This is an exceptionally good laptop for that kind of dough, it does everything I need it to and then some. I have to give kudos to Intel for this amazing processor, it is way faster than my core 2 duo, with a lot of the same specs. The screen, however, is my favorite part, really crisp and clear for every purpose. I am not a gamer though, so that may not be it's best purpose. For a general household computer, it is more than sufficient with internet needs, email, music storage and streaming, and for movies as well, although a blu-ray disc player would be a nice addition. Not that I can complain for the price!! This gets 2 very big thumbs up!

Just to show how powerful this laptop is, I'll tell you what I have running:

- Eclipse (for Android cell phone development)
- 3 AVDs (Android Virtual Devices a.k.a. virtual Android phones)
- Google Chrome with 6 tabs open
- DoubleTwist
- Windows Media Center

With all this my memory widget shows usage at 72% (Eclipse uses a LOT of memory as does the AVDs) and there is no lag or delay at all as I type this. And I've been using it for the past 5 hours. Developing for Android on this is an absolute pleasure. Display is bright and sharp as well. Speakers are good. Volume is loud without distorting the music. But if you're an audiophile, plug in your headphones since the base isn't truly heavy.

There are a couple of negatives but they are minor (for me):
- No bluetooth (there is an icon for it but it's not there)
- keys feel delicate but not cheap

Features for the price can't be beat. You won't find these specs for the price anywhere. I bought mine on Best Buy for $599. Price HP and Dell spec for spec and you'll see they don't compare.

I bought this computer today for my wife from Best Buy. At $600 it is truly a great buy for the hardware specs alone. From that standpoint I am very satisfied. All of the components are sleek, sturdy, and well constructed. This is one of very few COREi3 17" laptops available for $600. Here is the downside, similar to any other retail computer, this one comes packed with bloatware that you will have to extract from the system. These include a best buy branded installer, a gateway launcher, Microsoft office 2007 trial and Norton Antivirus trial that have to go. Also, the computer came installed with a poorly functioning version of Windows 7 Home that had a windows installer failure with every attempt to install any software. Here's the remedy: fortunately I had a copy of Windows 7 Ultimate, and simply entering the product key will perform an automatic upgrade of the system, no install disk required. This took 15 minutes and remedied the installer problem. After that I had no more issues. My suggestion to anyone who buys these computers set up by Best Buy, be aware that it might take an upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate or some other troubleshooting to fix this bug. My other suggestions for basic customization of this laptop to improve your safety and usability include the installation of the following free third party applications: Avira Antivirus, Threatfire, CCleaner, VLC Player, Open Office, Notepad++, Paint.net, and RocketDock.

I spent months reviewing various computers trying to find one that is perfect for me. I'm a student looking for a good, sturdy laptop with a larger screen (between 15-17") and I don't care about gaming or graphics. After CNET reviewed this laptop one of the 5 best laptops of 2009, I decided to look into this. I bought it at Best Buy and after 5 minutes of having it turned on, it shut down. I spent hours with Gateway Tech Support trying to fix this problem, as it intermittently shut down every 5-15 minutes. After days of working on this (on and off) with tech support, they deemed that it had internal hard drive corruption and the latptop needed to be sent in for repair or returned. I returned it to Best Buy, and found that the laptop (7 days after purchase) was discontinued in ALL Best Buy stores, and they are the only retailer that carries this laptop. I later found out that many people were having internal hard drive corruption issues with this computer, and that I didn't just end up with that one, rare, lemon.

However, I must say that apart from the internal hard drive corruption, I loved this laptop. It was fast, even for an i3 processor when compared to other i3s made by Toshiba and I love the numeric pad on the side and the touch-buttons on the top. The screen quality is superb, it can handle multiple tasks at one without slowing down and I have no problem with the touch pad or the mouse bar. Granted, for major projects I do use a separate mouse, but that's more out of habit. It feels very sturdy and not cheap or plastic-y at all, and is a good weight for its size. The sound is fine, the volume is a little on the low side but still is good for watching Hulu or Netflix videos online.
