1 out of 5 eggsWindows 8 is terrible and so is the keyboard on the Gateway

Pros: Fast.

Cons: I have only used Windows 8 a few times before purchasing this Gateway, and it does not function well. Unfortunately it took me more that 30 days (the return policy) to realize how much I hated it. Windows are constantly popping in and out, constant windows are re-sized by an accidental touch of my palm to the mouse pad... The overly sensitive mouse pad + Windows 8 is just terrible.

Ever since Windows 8 did its update, all of my browsers crash ALL OF THE TIME. I have had to restart the laptop 4 times in the past hour due to browser crashing.

As for the computer itself, the physical keyboard is warped on the end, so every time I start up, I have random numbers already pressed into000000000000000000 the password block, so I have to delete it. Every. Time. I thought I could get over that, but I can't handle this plus Windows 8. I could go on about Windows 8...

If the keyboard was intact I would contemplate purchasing a new operating system, but it's not worth the trouble. I'm sure the Gateway would be just fine if it had anything other than Windows 8, and a working keyboard.

P.S. had to restart again during this review.

4 out of 5 eggswindows 8 for me

Pros: very nice laptop and could not be any happier with it. Windows 8 is new for me having grown up with everything from 3.1 to Vista and 7. I did down load a couple programs that emulate the Vista power button area and that has helped me alot with the 8 system. the speed and quality is there for sure and it looksl ike a total new unit instead of being a factory used item (refurbished.)

Cons: Wish there was Office loaded onto it. We have office 2000 Pro and i found out we can not use it on an 8 system. :-(

Other Thoughts: Would I purchase another one from newegg? sure as heck would. these folks are GREAT!!!!!!!!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat value

Pros: This laptop is very nice, and didn't even look like it was refurbished in any way. Everything still fits tight. Price just could not be beat.

Cons: It's bundled with the usual crapware. I uninstalled nearly all of it in about 45 minutes.

Other Thoughts: This is a solid machine, at a more than fair price. If you want cheaper than this, you'll only get a netbook with no HDD or DVD drive.
