Bottom Line: The DX4200-09 is an excellent computer for the price.

I have 3 computers in use in our family of varying makes and ages. I tend to replace one when it gets to 5-6 years of age. Normally I plan and save for major purchases like a computer well in advance.

I was unable to do that this time around as my five year old computer's motherboard died unexpectedly. I take work home fairly often so waiting was not an option (nor is taking another family member's computer way an option for similar school/work issues).

Due to timing reasons, my budget was $500, no where near what I usually budget & save up for, so I did not have high expectations. I went to several stores and this is the best machine I could find for the price. I paid $470 plus sales tax. I never buy the extended warranty as my background would make it wasteful spending. I did not need a monitor, speakers, keyboard, or mouse. (You do get speakers, keyboard and mouse with this computer however I did not use them and they are not part of this review.)

This computer runs very well out of the box. Set up is easy. The on board video is typical of its kind in that it is adequate as long you do not do anything video intensive. 4 GB of RAM is the sweet spot for Windows Vista as there is very little software as of the date I am writing this that can use more. Only 2 of the 4 memory slots are used so adding RAM, if ever needed, is easy. The hard drive is large and reasonably fast (640GB @7200 RPM). The power supply is primitive and you will be replacing it if you perform any upgrades to this computer - it does not even have a standard 6 pin video card power connector!

As a previous reviewer point out, this isn't the fastest processor available, but unless you streaming video, will you care? The machine comes with 4GB of memory, which to me is more important than the processor speed. The fact that the processor is a Quad-core, means that you virus protection software etc.. will not interfere with you daily use of the computer.

It also comes with Vista ultimate. I was regretting the day I would buy a Vista based computer, but its not been bad and with the free upgrade to Windows 7, I won't have to worry about it for too long. The other included software is MS Works. Everything else included is trialware.

The machine included 4GB main memory, 640GB HD, built-in graphics ( but did include VGA and HDMI interfaces), a keyboard, mouse, pair of speakers ( not real good ), network card, DVD.

Gateway website and support seems to be heading down hill since purchased by Acer. The bug fix program which was on my computer was removed after installation because the program was no longer supported. The Windows 7 upgrade website was terrible and error prone though I eventually got through it.

I purchased it because I didn't want to speed above $400. I was looking for a desktop for the kids and me to share, and one that would last for 3+ years. And I think I found it. I could have spent 500-700, but since I don't play graphic extensive games, why bother. And the processor speed is enough. I'm unlikely to add more internal components so the issue with the power supply is not a big deal.

I priced around. I originally wanted to speed under $300, but I wanted at least 3GB of RAM, and a Dual-Core. This computer is priced very close to the bottom, but gives a few extras, like the additional memory, larger hard drive, Vista Ultimate ( not basic) etc..

The only thing I've added was a USB Wireless Network Card from Netgear. No issues with it or the computer so far after two weeks.

This computer is a total bargain, it is very fast not SLOW as some of the other reviews have stated,it is more than likely operator error, I liked my first computer so much that I purchased one for my grandsons birthday and it came with a 2.4GHz cpu, that was a pleasant suprise, these computers are stable, fast, reliable, and well built, my daughters boy friend liked it so much he bought one and so did his parents, if you whine about this computer you obviously do not know much about them! the Gateway DX4200 is a very good unit, none of us have had a single problem with the DX4200, and the people that said they did more than likely purchased a refurbished unit, if you are looking for a well built inexpensive unit with alot of preformance then this is your model. A BEST BUY, I would have no qualms about purchasing another Gateway computer, remember it is not cheap just inexpensive.
thank you

UPDATE 5-15-10 Running strong. No problems. Connected LCD HDTV 32 in screen thru HDMI without any difficulty as a large computer monitor. Really like it.


UPDATE 1/10: Computer is running great after several months. Now using the HDMI output with great success. Both sound and picture use the HDMI. Most software runs well - the only difficulties have been older DOS programs - 16 bit and a few older Windows programs. The older DOS programs run in a VM using DOSBox. Upgraded to 8 gb before the big price hike in DDR2 memory. Very pleased with the purchase from J&R.


Actually came with the 9750 AMD cpu Quad (not 9100e). This is a significant upgrade to the entire computer. The 9100e CPU was slower and a little buggy. The OS is Vista 64 bit. Should be able to play many games even with the stock graphics. So far, even business 32 bit applications are working nicely ie Microsoft Office XP, etc (not Outlook). Used an old WiFi USB adapter with older 32 bit driver and it worked fine! (there was a scare that a lot of 32 bit software and drivers would not work - I don't know but everything I threw at the OS worked fine). NOTE: older 16 bit programs do not work on a 64 bit OS. You can run them thru a VM (virtual machine) installed on your 64 bit computer - which is another topic.

With a more powerful GPU and PSU upgrade this would be a better gaming machine too!
