Can't help you there Yorkie. I play on a Mac and totally LOVE it. Always had an IBM with Windows XP until the daughter bought me this as a surprise. Took quite a while to get used to it but would never go 'back'. Also know I wouldn't have been able to afford it myself Pout

I hope you like to clean your screen a lot. Very Happy I have an HP, and I like it!

Can't say I've ever used a Gateway, but 100 bux is 100 bux.

Coincidently my daughter just took her Gateway in for service just today. Surprise for her that it was sold to her as a "new" laptop but when they scanned it she was informed it was a refurbrished LT. Be sure to ask prepurchase . She's pissed as she was misled. Shocked Shocked

I have to second getting the HP. A lot of co-workers have one and swear by them. I was going to get a Gateway one time, because I just wanted something affordable but everyone steered me away from them because of the amount of problems they have. I ended up with a Sony, only because it was on sale (otherwise wouldn't be able to afford one) and they wanted to bring in the newer models. I've had it for over 7 years now and haven't had any problems with it. My next computer will be a laptop and will be an HP.

If I had a choice of a 3 hour drive to buy a computer or order online and 3 wait 3 weeks for delivery, I would take the drive option. I tend to like to buy things in stores, rather than online. This way if there is something wrong with the product, it's a lot easier to exchange or get fixed if you can talk in person with someone.

Hi Yorkie. Remember that sometimes you get what you pay for.
That $100 bucks really is nothing when you are comparing good to exceptional! I'd get the HP.
Oh, and travel the 3 hours. Take a good friend and make a nice day trip out of it.

Don't know how I missed this post JJ,first good to see you again,and second
I decided on the Gateway it has all the features I really wanted on it,also purchased
a new moniter and a wireless printer.The computer should be ready by Monday I hope
I went with dual quad core,6gb of and 1TB of memory,it has the inside guts to push it and I can upgrade to 8gb later if I want to.

Fleas you had no idea I knew some of those words did you :lol:

Neither did I until I did some research and made sure I was getting what I wanted
Please tell me windows 7 is wonderful
