2 out of 5 eggsBundled Software Nightmare

Pros: This laptop is fine for people like me who only use it for web browsing and e-mail.

Cons: The bundled Norton (Symantec) 360 "free trial" software activated without my permission when I installed Norton Antivirus (which I purchased separately). Symantec makes it impossible to disable or cancel it. I've tried everything I can think of, but Symantec doesn't post instructions, the information that they do post refers to web page buttons that don't exist, they don't respond to e-mail or helpdesk requests, there is no uninstall utility, etc. I consider Symantec to be engaged in underhanded business practices. Since Gateway chooses to bundle Symantec's software, I hold Gateway responsible. Unless you like being stuck with software you didn't order, which steals your data, and which you'll likely pay for indefinitely, DON'T BUY GATEWAY COMPUTERS!!!

4 out of 5 eggsNice

Pros: Fast and very easy set up. I had an HP before and I liked that better but this is a pretty good laptop. It has great battery life and does everything need it to do. It's light and skinny and doesn't get really hot like my HP did.

Cons: The key board is kinda plastic and cheap feeling, but you don't notice very much. The mouse however is very difficult to click on things.

2 out of 5 eggsGood specs, bad touchpad

Pros: The specs are excellent for the money and the screen is sharp and clear.

Cons: The touchpad (Elan "Smartpad") is horrible to use. The cursor seems to skip and jitter all over the screen while trying to navigate. Even when holding your finger perfectly still on the pad, the cursor still jitters around. The problem is intermittent of course meaning they may not see it if you return the laptop for service.

Other Thoughts: I'm now stuck with the choice of paying Newegg the 25% restocking fee (+shipping) or paying to ship it to Gateway and risk that the problem won't occur for them when they look at it.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Light weight and easy set up' nice graphics, good price for what I needed it for.

Cons: i am not sure initial installation of software was done correctly. I could not find a phone number of any one to call for help.

Other Thoughts: I bought this lap top with intentions of installing some software that will help me study for a particular certification . My daughter also bought the same comp. for school. Both of us had trouble down loading software on to our computers. I kept getting a 1303 microsoft error that I did not have the right permissions to down load or change the computer. Long story short I got on line with help for gateway and solved the problem. I would give the help a 5 out of 10 ...she did send me to a MS link that eventually solved the problem. At least I think it was a she? Admittedly, I don't know the Indian culture very well. Overall I would say I am ok with the product so far.

4 out of 5 eggsBasic Goodness

Pros: Straight off the bat, this laptop was pretty straight foward and clean. Took me about 3-4 minutes to set up everything with a breeze. I would definately suggest this laptop to anyone that is looking to browse the internet, school work , social media, netflix , etc.

Just to note.. I bought this laptop for my mother who just turned 60.She was looking for a basic machine to catch up on the technology swing and to brush up on her typing skills. So far So Great!! Newegg's fast and easy shipment made everything king as well.

Cons: None to note so far. Couple of months in and if any problems occur ill be sure to repost

Other Thoughts: This machine doesn't feel or seem like it was made with cheap parts and looks real sturdy.
