I was afraid that the red laptop would be an unattractive computer, but it is not. It's more of a burgundy than a red, as a matter of fact it matches perfectly with my wife's LG enV3 cellular phone.
The plastic case feels cheap. I'm not sure if this is because of the fake wood grain pattern on the unit or the actual material used, but this laptop is one of the lightest full sized laptops that I have owned. (Probably because of the plastic type) One of my favorite laptop quality test is to grab it with one hand by the corner with the screen open to see if it is rugged enough not to flex. I owned one lightweight laptop in the past that flexed/bent and made a cracking sound every time that I held it with one hand. This one is sturdy.
The laptop came with the new free version of MS Office, that is feature limited and supported by ads. I took this version off, but I can see it's merits if I didn't already have a full version of the MS Office.
My only complaints is that the keyboard has some keys re-arranged. The <home>, , , <end> keys are all located on the arrow keys and require a function key press to work. The other problem would be the lack of a Caps Lock, Num Lock and Scroll lock LED. An icon shows up momentarily on the screen when the button is press displaying the status. This means that the user either has to remember the state of each key, type the text and hope that it is in the right case or tap the key to see the status instead of just glancing over at the lights near the keyboard.
Black keyboard and design
Hard drive space
Camera pretty much sucks. 1.3mp no good
Recommend to buy a separate webcam if planning on using camera
I confess I'm a techno-geek and before buying anything regarding laptops I look around like 1000 times, mainly in other brand but somehow I found this Gateway and the thing that convinced me to leave the other brand was the Blu-ray drive and hdmi port.
With 4gb Ram, 500gb Hard Drive, a neat and superb look, integrated webcam, full 101 keyboard, multigesture touchpad, great video resolution (up to 720p on laptop screen, 1080p in capable tv via HDMI port), Blu-ray combo drive, this laptop has met my gamer needs an d my wife's business needs too. This is a heavy weight champion in a light to medium weight body.
I have this baby for 3 weeks now and I'm in love...no regrets so far, i'll update this review in a few weeks...
Overall 5 stars
The laptop is solid otherwise. Feels light but firm when you pick it up. Comes with a few add ons that are easy enough to remove. Some are just internet shortcuts to sites like NY Times, Netflix & B&N. The first boot up takes a little while to configure but then it's pretty quick. With the i3 processor and 4GB of RAM I should be set for a couple years.
The biggest issue with this laptop is the pad where you rest your wrist when typing. Way too often I find that the mouse has moved to a different area on the screen because my hand touched the mouse pad or something. But it's been a week and I'm still using it without an external keyboard or mouse. The "gesture" movements do get you sometimes as well. I looked quickly at the different gestures you can use and it looks like they all take 2 fingers. But some how I'm making the movement which makes the font size smaller or bigger for the web page you're on. It even happened while typing this.
One other quirk - the fan. It doesn't run consistent. It goes on and off, on and off in short bursts. Just not used to that I guess. My Dell would stay running for some time.
Other than that this is a really good deal....or was at $550.
I've had 3 different Dells in the past at work where I was in tech support for 9 years. So I've seen a few laptops in my time. This is the second Gateway I've purchased this year (the other was a 17" for my wife). I never thought I'd buy a Gateway before but their new models and biz model seems to be working well. They've had some of the best deals around lately and I'm all about the specs and price comparing.
So if you're in the market for a 15" laptop and want to spend under $600 and get a Blu Ray this is the deal. If you don't care about the blu ray look around and see if you can get one with a Core i5 processor.
PS - make sure you create a Recovery Disc after deleting some of the crapware. It takes 4 DVDs to do it or drop it on an external drive.
