Very good laptop 3/31/2009 2:53:10 PM

Pros: Very nice bright screen. Very little bloatware to remove. So far pretty powerful and fast.

Cons: The power cord doesn't really have a solid connection to the side of the computer and keeps unplugging, just a minor annoyance.

Superb laptop 3/15/2009 7:58:56 PM

Pros: -Elegant build (these pictures don't do justice to it)
-Illuminated playback controls on the left of the keyboard and easy adjustment of brightness
-Gorgeous tactile keyboard a pleasure to use (although its expansive layout takes a few hours to adapt to - it's at least 10% wider than a regular keyboard)
-Sweet vista performance

Cons: -Bloatware - but a comparatively small amount that took less than 15mins to uninstall
-Small issue with soundcard driver that adds a faint hiss with certain sounds (I still haven't got to the bottom of this)
-Resolution a little disappointing - 768px tall.

Overall Review: The notebookreview review of this laptop made up my mind to buy it and I haven't been disappointed. The power of these specs is everything I expected - it runs fast, smooth and surprisingly cool. I can't speak highly enough of this laptop which is up there with the best available at this price.

A word on Vista... ignoramuses who grumble about 64bit vista need to look at it again on competent hardware, because in my experience it's a pleasure to use. It found the home network straight off and I haven't had any compatibility problems with old software. I remember a time when XP was dissed in the same way, even up to a couple of years after its release. It leads me to suppose OSs are released well in advance of hardware capable of running them optimally. No doubt this experience would have been very different different with the poorer specs 2 years ago. But it's clear now what a lovely OS this is.

Very good notebook 3/11/2009 8:42:55 PM

Pros: Fast. HD has enough space for my daughter. Good graphics. My daughter likes the look -- just as important to her as what is inside the laptop is to me. She uses the webcam, which is the standard 1.3 MP. Vista is 64-bit so it sees all 4 Gig of RAM. WAN and LAN are gigabit, and the wireless is draft-N (fast transfers).

Cons: Heavier than most laptops (yes I did NOT read the weight before I bought it -- my fault) but not prohibitive.

Overall Review: I really like this and so does my daughter. Good price although 2 weeks after I bought it, Newegg had it on sale for $100 less than what I paid. The excellent features of this computer make me forget that this laptop is heavier than most.

Great notebook! 3/9/2009 7:12:31 PM

Pros: Nice looking machine, functions very well. Very little bloatware to remove.
Set up easily on my wireless network. I've checked it out thoroughly and found no problems at all. I'm happy with this purchase.

Cons: The screen doesn't tilt back very far, so if you have it in your lap you have to kind of prop it up a little at the front to get the optimum vertical viewing angle. A minor issue, but worth mentioning.

Overall Review: This is my second Gateway notebook and I'd have to say I would buy another.

VERY SLEEK! 2/20/2009 6:04:23 AM

Pros: VERY NICE LOOKING MACHINE! PLAYS HIGH CAPACITY FLASH CARDS WHICH IS NICE AND SHOULD BE STANDARD IN ALL MACHINES, BUT ITS NOT....GOOD TO HAVE A DEDICATED GFX CARD ALSO TO TAKE THE STRAIN OF OTHER COMPONENTS.

Cons: NONE, YET.... JUST HOPE ITS NOT ONE THAT DIES SOONER RATHER THAN LATER :/

Overall Review: KEYS ARE A LITTLE BIGGER THAN THE USUAL BUT ITS JUST SOMETHING TO GET USED TO. NOT A PRO OR A CON JUST WORTH A MENTION.
