Gateway DX430X


The Gateway DX430X ($1,344 direct, $1,454 with 19-inch widescreen LCD monitor) replaces the previous DX product line. It stakes a solid claim in the land of mainstream computing, but encroaches on high-end territory in the process. Gateway's previous...

New styling. Very good performance. Lots of inputs and outputs. Powerful graphics card. Wireless networking. Removable hard drive bay

Soft-Touch" mouse is a little stiff (at least it's optical). McAfee security software subscription only 90 days. Internal cables a bit unruly. Portable Media Drive uses non-standard USB ports. No HD DVD or Blu-ray option
