Default The home shopping network and gateway...

have joined forces yet again to bring us another computer thats so incredible that you will probably never build your own again!
What a crock of shit.
Anyway...I just watched some 20 minute deal about gateway computers on the home shopping network talikng them up, making me vomit. I wouldn't have watched at all except I was putting my boy to sleep and he has to have the tv on, and I couldn't find the damn remote!
People watch this crap, and they are convinced they are getting the best computer in the world, and then wonder why they can't play games like Far Cry. Hmmmmm,
You think people would learn huh..
Oh well I just needed to vent cuz I hate Gateway, Dell, HP, eMachines junk, and everything that has been put together on an assembly line.


hahahaha
