Always, Always buy from Amazon LLC, dont take chances with 3rd party vendors.
Very fast boot time (like 30 seconds), one of the fastest i7 processors, 10 USB ports (this was very important for me), 8 gigs of fast DDR3 RAM, an excellent graphics card (although we don't game with it), whisper quiet, and a freakin' 750 watt power supply for unlimited expandability.
Ours came from Circuit City, and unlike another reviewer here, we had no problems whatsoever. On a side note, I've been buying mail order computers for 20 years and I know that computers can be damaged in shipping - usually a connector or an internal CMOS battery coming loose. Catastrophic failures can happen to any computer and will often occur during the first few days. Easy enough to send it back for a full refund, and that can happen with any computer. Yeah, don't buy a Gateway if you want hand holding. But I digress...
I immediately installed a second 1TB hard drive to use as a backup inside the machine and the computer recognized it immediately. I networked it with an XP machine, installed lots of other software, including some old Win XP stuff and it all works without so much as a hicup. I also used the Gateway Recovery Management feature early on (due to my own ineptness) and it worked perfectly, saving me hours of work.
I am so impressed with this computer, that I may end up buying a second one. Highly recommended (just save one more for me)!
The removable hard drive bays, locations of ports and connectors, choice of components all make heaploads of common sense. The only things missing is a TV Tuner card and web cam, which I purchased separately. Blue-Ray drives will come down farther in price soon, so I thought it best to wait on that.
This is remarkably quiet. The machine feels as if it was assembled by people who care. Also... I'm a Mac guy, but how on earth can I get anything remotely like this for the price? Windows 7 is a productive environment, and has many features I wish my Mac at work had. I would never admitted that two years ago!
