Gateway DX4850-45u

 

Are you the type who upgrades your tower PC's hard drive often? If so, check out the Gateway DX4850-45u desktop PC.

Innovative hard drive expansion bay. Good multimedia performance. Offers lots of internal expansion room. Includes Blu-ray drive, Wi-Fi card, HDMI port.

Short Norton Internet Security subscription. Loaded with bloatware. Has no USB 3.0, eSATA ports. Hard drive is slow.

Gateway DX4850-27eu

 

The Gateway DX4850-27eu is a low-priced desktop that provides fast processing power and expansion room for those who might want to add a few of the features it lacks later on.

Fast second-generation Intel Core i5 processor. Big 1.5TB hard drive. Room for expansion.

Slow drive speed. Not tool-less. No Wi-Fi. No USB 3.0 or eSATA.

This computer comes with a Blu-ray player and offers wireless connectivity

There is a distinct lack of support and the video card included with the computer is on the low end

This computer isn't ideal for gaming or video rendering, but it's great for other entertainment purposes and normal everyday use.

Great buy for the money

 

Overall, I really love this computer. Works very well for what I throw at it.

I use it for gaming online, and it has great processing power, even without the graphics card. It's quiet, has cool housing lights, simple to use, and is sold on Newegg for a very good price, for all you get. There's more space on it than I'll use...at...

Didn't come with a graphics card, which help when I try to play a few of my games (Team Fortress 2 with 20+ players and Sniper: Ghost Warrior...that game has a lot of deep field views with lots of trees being blown by wind...it has a very small issue...
