Default gateway?

Does anyone here have a gateway pc? I have been looking around and found a gateway machine but I am not sure weather I should buy it or not?

Post a link to the machine? Gateways are alright sometimes, I would generally go with dell if you want a manufactured PC.

All that for 299 - $557

I did a little comparison between Dell and Gateway. The Gateway costs only $638.98 while the Dell cost $658. With the Gateway, you get a better processor, speakers, and a better mouse & keyboard, plus it looks better. Heres the specs for the Dell:

AND heres the specs for the Gateway:

As you can see the Gateway is better. Go for the Gateway! My Gateway is great! It was at a good price too.

Gateway is pretty good. They make the Emachines comps... . This one looks excellent, just upgrade to a better video card if you want more out of it for gaming, but the intergrated 6100 should do wonders for normal tasks, and moderate gaming.
