Gateway Intel Core2 Duo 1.8 GHz Desktop Computer

 

A powerful Core2 Duo processor, 320 GB hard drive and 1 GB of memory give this cheap desktop computer enough power for even the most demanding office uses.

There is nothing lacking in this cheap desktop computer. Some possible upgrades might include a RAID array for storage, but otherwise all other needs are taken care of. A well-rounded package with enough expansion options for any extras. Add a 17 or 19...

Gateway support for an incomplete o/s build...

 

Installing Windows from scratch is no issue for me, it's just time consuming. It wipes the hard drive clean and gets rid of the bloatware these companies load as "packaged" software. However, if you're not computer savvy, find someone who is because...

Once I got this baby up and running, it works as you would expect with the level of components installed. Warcraft runs at about 60 FPS with full settings while in Dalaran or Naxx25. I have an Acer P243w 24" monitor connected. The ATI 4850 graphics are...

Here we go! :-( First let me say that Newegg had nothing to do with my purchase of this computer so they're off the hook. The rating is specifically targeted at Gateway for 1) an incomplete o/s installation and 2) lack of follow-through on their...

Bad Support

 

None right now, as I cannot even start it up fully

I was excited to finally get my new computer, but upon starting it up, found that they did not fully install windows vista onto it. Unfortunately, there is also no backup disc that comes with this machine so I had to call Gateway support. They said it...

Gateway FX6710-01 Core 2 Quad Q9400(2.66GHz) 6GB DDR2 750GB ATI Radeon HD 4850 Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit - Retail

 

Bloatware brings down the price as we all know and free programs like revo uninstaller will completely remove this garbage with a couple of clicks. Pre-removal, vista was registering almost 50% of available ram. Thats 3gigs people... ridiculous. After...

Nice specs for the price. I actually put a build together with almost the same gear, and this was cheaper. Lots of ports, cool pop out card reader and front audio ports. Front drive access. Good looks. Runs ArcGIS like a dream. Multiple applications...

I've only run WoW on this thing as far as games go, and I've seen frame rates from 170 to 30 fps in the same area which is pretty bizarre. I've seen some of the same complaints on the forums regarding the ATi 4850, but I thought that this had been...

Bang for the buck

 

I bought it a few days ago, I was going to build a machine, since thats what I've done for over 10 years now. This machine was on sale at the store i was at and came out to $50 more than what I had priced out for the machine i was going to build, plus...

Quiet, Looks good, Great Specs, Good Frame Rate, Excellent Price

So far, it has been hard to find cons with this machine, I have found a few qwerky things, but I saw that before I bought the machine. But a few things to watch out for, the bottom air flow tunnel = flimsy, The PSU is 400watts(though it gave me no...

Good Machine

 

Great machine. Nothing really bad about it to say. Run Warhammer online with it w/o any problem

Although the internet connection is SLOWWWWWW, and i suspect it's vista more than the machine. I got the latest driver from intel, still didn't fix the issue. Any1 else having this problem

Great deal

 

This comp is still great even with vista. hopefully vista will get some good updates to all the bugs that effect it now. Great price for good comp. This is my 3rd gateway comp and im pretty pleased. Gateway comps are made to last awhile so ur at least...

Great computer for good price. Fast and very compatable. I played alot of recent games on full specs with little to no framerate lag. Good stuff

Windows Vista is of course windows vista and even with all the power the computer has, it still runs a little slow at certain points. I dont like how there is no back up cd or anything else that comes with this comp but hey what can ya do. Lots of...
