Pros: There are a number of things I like about this computer. It is fast with the 6 gigs of ram and the I3 processor. It has a nice large screen that is 17 inches. The screen is very bright. It is a handsome looking computer. And it has Windows 7. The speakers are great sounding on their own. The screen is bright enough to be seen without needing more lighting. It has a full size numeric keyboard and is easy to type on.
It is very hard to find a Windows 7 machine. And the ones that are out there are more expensive than this laptop. They have less ram and a smaller screen. Yet they are the same price as this for more money. Windows 7 is easier as there are fewer steps to get things done, such as having two windows side by side. Or having one window open with a text window. I have tried to learn these with Windows 8 but it is harder, especially if you are a writer.
Gateway makes it easy to back up your information. It includes a social media button, which you will need to run an update on. But it is a nice feature.
Cons: I would have liked hotkeys for mail, printing, web browsing, and calculator, but you have a numerical keyboard so that takes up most of the room. The edges are a little uncomfortable and you may decide to get a wrist rest.READ FULL REVIEW
