Great Machine for Great Price!


If u are a gamer, you might consider upgrading with low profile graphic card

I don't think that you can get anything better for this price right now. I am not really a gamer, but I use drafting and photo editing software which works well

If you know what are you getting, you will not be disappointed

Get this is you just need a new PC, and oh, the Intel X4500 aint bad, You'll enjoy this little thing!

Alright! This is very small, and well, silent! The Core 2 Quad version is older, but quad core is nice to have. I upgraded from and old 2.4GHz Pentium 4, Im amazed. Not really a gamer, I just play combat arms, so its perfect! Havent thought of a new...

Great Machine


Not much bloat where to remove.

Received the machine in two days. Set-up was a snap. Very quiet and fast machine. I use it for Microsoft Office and browsing. Not a gamer. I was leery buying a machine via the net, but I'm very satisfied

Buy this or SX2800-07?


I considered the SX2840-01 and the SX2800-07 before choosing the SX2840. The SX2840 has a larger HD (1TB vs. 640MB), and more RAM (6GB vs. 4GB). SX2840 also has a newer processor, i3 530, that uses 32nm technology and is more energy efficient. SX2800's...

Fine machine for just about everything, except heavy gaming ; Relatively easy to upgrade graphics w/ half height card

Depending on your needs, SX2800-07 may be better and cheaper

Passing the Torch??


Newegg is wonderful, she is my mistress.

This was supposed to be the PC that officially killed my PC gaming, after 15+ years and three self-built rigs, two kids, blah, blah. Oh no, this lil' puppy can keep up quite nicely, espcially after installing the Sappire 4650 low profile card (thx to...

Bloatware is easy to remove, so really a non-issue ; No complaints really, well done Gateway

This PC Rocks!!


Absolutely the best PC investment I have made in 10 years.

This PC is the finest on the market today. It lives up to the reviews and more. I ripped videos for my IPOD using Nero Recode, played music files using Windows Media Player, and had intense queries running in Microsoft Access 2007, and it had 90% of...

64 bit is a drawback. I had to replace some applications and change to new applications in some instances. DVD43 DOES NOT RUN ON 64 BIT. DVDFab is a worthly replacement

Super machine


Great price and fast shipping from Newegg. Would buy from them again. Liked the E-mail tracking link.

Easy to set up. Plug and go. Quiet running. Super fast for an average user. Love Windows 7 so far

Would not install my 10 year old Canon scanner because of the 64 Bit but thats ok. Need a new one anyway
