Strengths: Great customer support This PC does everything I need it to do.
Weakness: None noticed
I purchased my PC through my local Gateway store and was pleased with the customer service and sales staff. I explained my needs and they were able to show me several different options. I received my PC in 7 days and set-up was a breeze. I look forward to purchasing other Gateway products in the future.

Strengths: It is working.
Weakness: Gateway, Gateway, Gateway, defective parts, rude customer support..
One day Gateway will learn to make a PC that can actually work without several major parts replacement and customer service humuliations.
I would never purchase any system from Gateway, even they are the last manufacturars in the world.
Avoid any Gateway at your own risk.
