4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: 1. PRICE. I got this for about $270, which is great considering the parts it has in it.

2. Storage, definitely. 1TB of memory gives you a lot to work with, and once again for a great price. More expensive models come with a lot less.

3. USB slots. This thing has a total of 9, 5 in front and 4 in back, more than you should ever need.

4. The case looks very sleek, even if it isn't that effective. (See cons.)

Cons: 1. The BIOS for the CPU is not accessible, so you won't be overclocking at all.

2. My computer only came with 4GB as opposed to six, but I managed to upgrade it to 8GB for only $20, contrary to the 6GB limit advertised here.

3. The case is TINY. Very very small, and not friendly at all to upgrades. I had to dremel off part of the case to get my Radeon 6750 to fit, and that card is considered low-profile.

4. The slots are questionably placed, especially the RAM and HDD. The HDD is under the DVD drive and gets very hot at times because of this. The DVD drive also rests above the RAM slots, which has caused problems for me because of the size of my RAM cards, leaving me to abandon the case's siding altogether.

5. Only 220w of power, definitely needs an upgrade if you're going to be doing anything other than light gaming or working.

Other Thoughts: This thing has been a wrestle to fix up, but I managed to hook it up with an open case, 500w power supply, 8GB RAM, and a Radeon 6750 HD. It can now tackle any game released up to this point (2012/1/16) without any lag whatsoever, and handles all of my multitasking and such perfectly fine.

1 out of 5 eggsWow. What a Waste of Time.

Pros: None.

Cons: Unit wouldn't even power on upon arrival. I bought this as a Christmas gift for my mom, and I'm definitely glad I checked it before I gifted it. Sent it back for a refund.

Other Thoughts: I know these units are re-certified, but I am very disappointed that a DOA unit could somehow be shipped to a consumer. It really makes me question how well these units are checked. Shame on Gateway/Acer and Newegg for selling them.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't buy this unless you want a headache

Pros: As per usual ships fast and it arrives when they say it will other than that there were no pros!

Cons: 1. Missing Hard Drive
2. Missing Memory
3. Missing Sata data cables
4. Included a cheap mouse and logitech keyboard not even Gateway branded.
5. Case had dings and scratched as per usual with recertified.

Other Thoughts: We ordered this as a sweet 16 gift for our daughter, it was the one she picked out not the one I would have chose mind you. When it arrived I opened the package and set it up as per usual methods with included keyboard, mouse, etc. Turned the unit on and got nothing, checked all of the connections and everything seemed to be fine so like a normal person who is tech savy I double checked everything and power cycled a few times. I still got nothing. After about an hour of this I got fed up and figured there must be a wire inside not connected or something so I cracked open the case to check the sata connectors. Low and behold to my horror inside the case there were parts missing and I don't mean fans. I mean someone failed to install a hard drive, memory and even left out the above mentioned sata data cables to hook even the dvd +/- rw up to. After contact with newegg Supervisor rep Charles I was given and RMA and restored faith in newegg but will never ever by Gateway products again!!!!
