A very good computer at the price, no major flaws.

 

I have owned six Gateways over the past 20 years. If you buy this computer spend the extra money to boost the memory. Computer arrived quickly, out of the box and setting it up only took an hour. Then trying to get around Windows 8. I've been running...

Great Product

 

Great Value, Features & quality seems great as well. Have only had a few weeks,time will tell. Only thing is that it has Windows 8 which I am having to learn. Never have worked with Windows 8 before, but doesn't seem that big of a deal so far.

Needs higher watt power supply and SSD boot up

Great value

 

I didn't get the Black Friday deal on this machine but it was still worth it at $700. I added a SSD and this baby is really fast now. The only thing that could have been better is the built-in graphics. Overall I am happy with this purchase.

Great computer

 

Got this computer for about 600 after Black Friday. The i-7 processor is fast and the computer is very quiet. Don't think you'll be able to get this computer for this price anywhere else.

Great computer, love it

 

I have this computer for a month now and it works great. I added 8GB RAM to it and it is fast, quiet and works as it should. The price was great for a i7 machine.

Bang For Yo Buck!

 

I was long overdue for a computer. After doing some research, I came across this model just into time for a Black Friday sale. I ended up paying 600 dollars for the unit. The day I got it, I was stunned at how fast this computer performs. I do a lot of...
