Gateways are good. I've always liked Gateways.

I've never liked any brand computer because they don't allow a lot of space for upgrades and they tend to skimp out on certain parts such as ram and such. Mind you, I've also been building my own computers for 10 years now so it's sacrilidgeous for me to buy a brand name computer.

Now those are good companies my friends, trust no others. They are all custom built and very decently priced!

However, if I had to choose out of those 4 companies (three really, since Dell isn't a company, it is a crime syndacite) I would choose Toshiba.

gateways are nice, but they have a lot of technical issues. i saw a chart for the most problems that needed tecnical support and no. 1 was gateway. but other than that, they are cheap and good.

Dell makes the best laptops out of those four.. as far as desktops.. None of them really.... but I'll go with toshiba. Gateway isn't that bad, I happen to have a pretty old computer from them that works alright.

Yeah; the old Gateways were built to stand! I don't know about the new ones. I'll see when they finally sell in Britain again!
