Gateway SX2865-UR10P


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.

Totally satified


It works great, never a problem, is half the size of regular desk-tops and is easy to work with

Nothing that I can really think of

Windows 8 is a challenge, but for a 70 yr. old, I'm doing great with it!

Great computer for the money

I have had NO problems with this product

Nice desktop unit


Bought as replacement unit for my daughter's use in college when her 4yr old notebook died. Paired it with 21.5" Hanns-G monitor. Perfect desktop as she uses a Gateway netbook for her portable needs.

Compact size, decent HDD capacity. Great for a student. Windows8

No USB3.0 ports, only 5400rpm HDD

Nice Slim Desktop


Sleek Style, Space Saving, I Love Windows 8, this desktop is very fast, and is great for checking email and social media. This is the first Gateway and think it is a good value for what your getting with this PC

Oh my, big mistake


I am ii the IT Industry, I bought this for a customer with hopes to familiarize myself with the W8, but wow, I had a hard hard time with it. This new OS is so very bad, unintuitive, even after I installed a third party start button.Long bad story...
