I recently purchased this Gateway and so far I love it! I have had zero problems with the touch pad. It's actually neat; it's backlit so it glows (you can turn off this feature if you don't like it). You can tap anywhere on the touchpad instead of having to use the left click button. To do a "right click" (as some other reviewers said they couldn't figure out), you still have to push down on the lower right corner of the touch pad. If you are on a webpage and you want to scroll down, you can just press and hold over the right side of the keypad, and a little emblem pops up and you can swipe up or down to scroll. I was really nervous about the touchpad after reading other reviews, I'm happy to report it exceeded my expectations.
As far as the rest of the computer, it has a really nice flat top, very ergonomic and simple. It's pretty light, around four or five pounds. It has a nice speaker which lines the entire front of the laptop base; for a "Dolby Virtual Surround Sound" experience. It's not quite a Bose, but it is better than any of my previous computers.
The keypad is large and easy to type on. The screeen is widescreen, with good graphics. I primarily use my laptop for personal use, mostly surfing the web (including writing product reviews on amazon), I also like to watch netflix and Hulu.
For these purposes, the i3 processor seems to be terrific. Much better than my old dual core intel. I don't have an i5 or and i7 to compare it to, but I think the higher end ones are maybe better for things like "gaming".
Best of luck!
I really like the size. At 5 pounds it is easier to tote around and balance on my lap. Very thin with a super thin screen. Also very bright display, still good even when dimmed to conserve battery.
Performance seems great! It is very fast with booting up, launching programs, surfing internet, streaming video and downloading files.
I thought the product description was wholly exaggerating the battery life at 6 hours, but it has been performing at or around that level on every occasion that I have run it unplugged.
SO WHY NOT 5 STARS?
It came close, but there were 2 things that held me back.
1. It comes preloaded with a bunch of garbage programs like Norton, Silverlight, and B&N reader that want you to register them and buy the upgraded version, etc. and mercilessly bug you until you do so or remove them. I was unable to uninstall Norton until I downloaded their proprietary removal tool from the Symantec website (PS- it wasn't easy to find either). I know just about every computer comes with a lot of programs preloaded, but these were particularly annoying.
2. The touch pad works okay as a regular pad, but is a little touchy. Even after several setting tweaks, I still have missed taps and scrolls, and trouble getting it to ungrab images or frames. Also the multi-gesture features such as zoom and rotate are problematic and not very reliable.
Overall I really like it. Quite satisfied. And at $489, my IT guy at work said I got a steal!
My only other comment is about the speakers. Speakers are very important to me in a laptop because i watch a lot of video and movies and can't be bothered to lug around extra speakers with me. I would say these speakers are average, especially for video, nothing to blow me away. You are probably going to still need headphones or external speakers to boost sound quality. That said the built in speakers are not BAD but not really an improvement from my Dell Inspiron 1525. Music sounds really good, maximum volume is decent - enough to fill a small room, I actually find the sound is better without the dolby digital enhancement so I took it off.
So buy with caution, if you are concerned about the touch pad, be prepared to get an external mouse.
PROS: Fast CPU, Lightweight, Decent battery life for a 6 cell battery, Fast wireless internet speeds and HUGE harddrive.
CONS: Widescreen size is a bit narrow, flat-keyed keyboard is mushy and not sturdy feeling, touchpad faulty
