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

Excellent

 

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...
