I specifically ordered this PC from Amazon / TigerDirect because the description stated (in multiple places) that it comes loaded with Windows 7. After receiving it, hooking it up and booting it, I discovered that it now comes with Windows 8. I'm not going to the trouble of packing it back up and returning it, but I am VERY unhappy at this misleading advertising. As of 4/6/2013 the Amazon description still states that is comes with Windows 7, but I did notify TigerDirect of this and hope this is corrected soon. If the description is updated, the title of my review will look silly, but until then I hope this serves as a warning to those who may be specifically looking for a Windows 7 PC.

That said, overall the computer is quite good. It is very small and compact, which is nice. The CD drawer is on its side since the tower is so narrow. It boots up very quickly and set up was straight forward. Too bad it no longer comes with Windows 7.

Unpacked my new Gateway Computer in anticipation of having some sort of problem, but the installation went beautiful. Plugged it in, booted it up, and onward from there. WIN 8 I was concerned about, since having used VISTA for 5 yrs, but what a nice smooth responsive operating system. Took about an hour to get use to it. I'm sold on WIN 8 and Gateway...

I'm sure this is a great machine... if you're lucky enough to get one that turns on. I took it out of the box, hooked it up, hit the power button ... and .... nothing. 3 hours later, after rapidly acquiring gray hairs with gateway customer service and searching tech nerd forums online, I'm relieved to find it's nothing too complicated, it's just a #@$%ing dud.

Wait, there's more..

After giving the customer service rep the serial number, he finds that my computer was originally bought in February (I purchased in Aug, 3 days ago). Is that the record of Amazon's purchase, or evidence that I purchased someone else's refurbished junk? The tech says we get good deals on these here because many are refurbished, but who knows if he's pulling the CYA for the Gateway man? I wondered why Amazon had such a good price on this (<--- a sucker's dying words). I'm sure it's in the fine print somewhere, but amazon should be upfront if they are indeed selling used machines. I've never written a review before, but if you can't tell by the snarkiness, I'm worked up.

I purchased this to replace a Windows Vista (high end at the time) PC. My goal was to use this as an office machine (Word, Excel, TurboTax, email, pay bills) as well as a media center PC for the bedroom this PC resides in. My first hurdle was learning the new Win 8 interface and then streamlining the machine. I soon discovered the easiest way to navigate Win 8 was to click on the lower left tile which gives you the "desktop" and then using the machine looks like all other versions. Hitting the "Windows Key" returns you to the tile screen.
I noticed they put a trial version of Norton on the PC and I soon discovered that Windows Defender (including virus ware) was built in to Win 8 but disabled when Gateway installed Norton. If you Google uninstalling Norton, their website has an uninstaller that allows this to be uninstalled and then using Control Panel, you can start up Defender (which gives free updates forever (?).
For those interested in comparing the performance of this machine with their current machine, the processor performance=6.7, Memory=5.9, Graphics=4.2, Gaming Graphics=5.6, and Hard Disk=5.9. It knocked the socks off my old machine!
I currently am using the VGA port on my Samsung Flat Screen monitor and the HDMI port on a Vizio 47" flat screen TV for the media center. For media, I am running XBMC which I also have on an Apple TV2. BTW, I used to think the Apple TV2 was fast, but this blows the Apple away!
I would have given this 5 stars except for the fact that there is some "crapware" that the user may want to remove as well as I don't think the packaging was secure enough for UPS. Packaging was essentially a box floating within a box with no bubble wrap or cushions.
Additional info: there are 6 usb2 ports on the back and 2 on the front.

Small, quiet and fast. Setup was simple and ran perfectly out of the box. Not a gamer. But it is a great little tower for general home use.

What a surprise! The family has gone through 6 PC's starting in the 80's. I wanted to replace my 12 year old Dell Inspiron which gave great service, but finally gave up the ghost. Anyway this was a compromise because I still enjoy a desktop and I did not want to spent big dollars for goodies I would never use.

This Gateway is fast, good quality, good features and great workmanship. I am happy with this unit and would recommend for all general users. Not a big time game machine or video editing box, but perfect for 99% of what we use a computer for.
