For years I held off on buying a laptop. Mainly because I had bought a netbook back in 2009 and it had sufficed for my mobile computing needs.

In November 2011 this unit was at Bestbuy's BF sale and I bought one.

Construction:
- The unit feels quite solid. I found no problems with its construction.

Display: The 15.6" screen size is more than adequate for most all of my computing uses:
- browsing
- working with office docs, spreadsheets and such.
- video viewing (such as youtube or DVDs) is great. No display problems, no choppiness in playback.

External screen outputs: Either one works fine, to drive a larger, external monitor.
- VGA port (aka HD15 port)
- HDMI port

Built-in card reader:
I have tested some 16GB SDHC cards which had "Live versions" of linux loaded on them.
The card reader worked fine both an SD card reader and as a secondary boot device for the "Live" linux OS loaded onto the SDHC cards.

Battery life:
- This laptops battery life is quite good. I have not ran the battery down completely but with my choice to
keep the screen "brighter" than normal while it's on battery, I'm still getting an estimated 4 hours+ of battery life.
- this factor has moved me away from using my old netbook as often as I had in the past, since my netbook's 3-cell battery's life was short compared to this Gateway laptop.

Wireless:
- reception and connection speed is good for this device. It does it's MS updates, it's AV updates and all downloads via wireless with no problems.

CPU: This CPU and this unit's overall speed is better than I had expected.
I use i5 and i7 laptops at work and have not found this gateway i3 to be much slower than the faster
i-series CPU laptops I use at work.

I purchased this computer on Cyber Monday of this year (2012) at a rock bottom price of $309.00 If that isn't unbelievable enough, let me tell you what an awesome package this is! It works unbelievably well and has all the bells and whistles as it came with Windows 7 which I love. The laptop is lightweight, the battery lasts just long enough, and it has plenty of space; even for a homeschooling parent. I think this MUST be the best computer on the market for the most reasonable price! We watch our expenditures in my house and this product is worth much more than I paid for it. Good quality!

I bought this laptop(which is what I am writing this review on) back in 2011on Black Friday for $349 online. I love the laptop! Only problem I have had is that it overheats when I am converting video files but a laptop cooling tray with usb fans take care of that well enough. The Intel i3 processor is fast. I added 4 more GBs of ram the week I bought it maxing it out at 8. Other than that, it is stock. I have a few dead pixels, now after 3 years of wear, but plan on keeping it until I upgrade to one with an i7 processor as they get cheaper and cheaper. Also, it comes with Windows 7 which I love. Hope this review helps someone make a decision.
