Pros: I purposely looked for another Gateway laptop since I have owned multiple ones over the years and this one is EXCELLENT like all the rest. You can't beat the price for 6GB of RAM and a nice i3 processor... and best... Windows 7 !!! It's very well built, sturdy, doesn't feel "Cheap". Screen is bright and VERY clear! Boot times and speed overall is superb, one would think there was an i7 processor in it.
Cons: The trackpad!!! WHY oh why couldn't Gateway have spent a little more and put in a Synaptics trackpad. I've never had problems with those. BUT... this Gateway has an ElanTech trackpad. I never heard of Elan, but it's BAD. Bad because it picks up accidental brushes against the trackpad causing your cursor to jump all over. And yes, there are a few "sensitivity" and "palm check" settings. But no matter where you place the settings, the thing does the same jumpity jump. I've looked for driver updates everywhere (Win Updates, Elan's website) and there are none. So the "finicky" trackpad is the only "Con".
Other Thoughts: I swapped out the regular hard drive on my NV76R45u and put in an SSD. Now the laptop boots from cold start to Windows 7 desktop in literally 18 seconds!!! The speed of this laptop astounds me every time I use it! I always recommend this model whenever someone asks me which laptop to buy.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Corsair honors their warranty. When the drive works, it works well and fast.
Cons: Corsair's 8GB Flash Voyager GT was highly recommended by many users at Tiger Direct, NewEgg.com, and other sites. So, I figured it would be a great product to buy and for the first three weeks I really was impressed with the speed of the GT.
But.. then one day I plugged it into my work computer like I did for the past three weeks with no problem, except now the GT wasn't recognized by the computer (WinXP Pro running on a Domain network). I took it home and found the entire Flash Voyager GT to be corrupted. So... I filled out the Corsair Tech Support form and Corsair gave me an RMA and I sent it back and a week later I had a brand new FlashVoyager GT. (this was the week of Oct 18).
Exactly ONE week and a few days later (today as a matter of fact, Oct 31), I plugged my new FlashVoyager GT into my work computer and once again the Corsair became corrupted.
I also have a Transcend 8GB flash drive and a SanDisk 4GB one, both work. So, I don't know what's going on with Corsair.
