This review is from: Gateway All-in-One PC One ZX4665-UR11 Celeron 1017U (1.60 GHz) 4 GB DDR3 500 GB HDD 19.5" Windows 8.1
Pros: The hardware on this machine seems nice enough.
In theory, it should work.
Cons: Where do I start? First, it has Windows 8.1. That should be enough to give anyone pause. But this was for a relative, who is not that familiar with PCs, and I thought it might work for him. But before I could warn him, he had installed Norton's Antivirus; Big, Big mistake. We have been trying to remove it ever since, even doing a supposedly clean reinstall of the operating system from the backup partition, but to no avail. Norton's keeps coming back.
Other Thoughts: I build my own machines, and use Win7 (or even XP), but would never dream of installing Windows 8 on anything, and would never dream in a million years of installing Nortons, which I gave up on over a decade ago.
I have even tried ordering the recovery disc/flash drive on the Gateway (now Acer) website, but they don't recognize the serial number of this machine. This is going to be a bigger problem than it should be.
