Gateway SX2855-UR11P


It's been almost a year since I've reviewed a traditional budget Windows desktop. As evidenced by the $499 Gateway SX2870-UR10P, the segment seems to have grown stagnant. That not necessarily a bad thing for those who simply want a cheap, familiar PC....

The Gateway SX2870-UR10P offers competent workhorse PC capabilities in a compact, versatile chassis.

Gateway's online service is in a state of disarray.

Budget desktops might not be all that exciting, but the Gateway SX2870-UR10P slim tower shows you can still find a worthwhile day-to-day PC for under $500.

Gateway SX2855


So is the Gateway SX2855 home computer the one for you? If you have a limited amount of space but still want a machine with a large storage capacity and plenty of RAM, then yes, this computer is one that you should take a closer look at. If you want...

There are two different sizes available for the Gateway SX2855. The compact version is great if you don't have much space

The CPU speed is a little slower at 2.6 GHz, and the support options are limited

This is a great computer to look into if you are limited on space, but if you want a lot of processing power you might want to look elsewhere.

High performance pc for affordable price in you wallet


I would definitely recommend this product who want a high performance pc but not hurting your wallet.

i3 2nd gen intel,6GB SDRAM 3MB Cache, 1.5 TB SATA Hard Drive, small form tower design, 6- in 1 media reader, 10 USB, audio supports dolby 5.1 surround, and the most important that I like is the price is affordable but high performance

nothing so far, except that this is not for the gamers system

Nice Computer


Nice computer for the money. Boots up quick and has a sweet light that you can turn off or on

Having a hard time getting this to do dual monitors. Maybe someone can let me know if it is possible with this computer. I just assumed it was because of the HDMI and vga Port

Good things come in small package!


Like I said before, 97.187% of the people out there will have no problem with this computer. For a small office or family it's a nice computer with a good price! Don't think you'll be rocking out high end games with this thing, as that is what it is...

Price! Good value, very snappy performance, this is all you need for basic usage or at an office. There really was not too much BLOATWARE on the system, remove that and you'll get some free space back and more response. VERY quiet system. 6 USB in the...

Oh my goodness, the LED lights that light up the front of this thing are bright!!! Don't put this baby on a desk next to your bed or it'll keep you up at night... I was thinking about unplugging them, but I'll leave that up to my customer. It's like a...

Great little windows 7 Machine


I would recommend a reinstall since acer still like to install alot of bloatware.

Very fast machine and can be upgraded without any real issues. Windows 7 can be clean installed real easy since you can make driver disc with there program. For the price with windows 7 very hard to build one much cheaper. Very quiet running machine...

Not a real con but bought 2 units and one of the units has a burned out LED. To be honest I might disconnect the working one kinda annoying anyways

Very Pleased


Small form factor fits on desk rather than under it. Stays cleaner and cooler. Fast enough for office needs. Had to remove a fair bit of third party junk software but that is expected. Lots of USB ports. Would have preferred Win 7 Pro or the option to...
