I bought this laptop last week. I thought it was a great value for the price/equipment I got. When I got home and tried to use the computer the mouse was incredibly frustrating. It did not follow what I was "telling" it to do. IE: moving to different areas of screen and/or being from one extreme to another in responsiveness. At first I tried to tell myself it was me just getting use to a new touch pad. but after a few days it got worse. Then the network connection started to act up. For no reason I will lose my internet access and have to manually reconnect. So I brought the comp back and exchanged it for another one, thinking I got a lemon. Eh...it happens, no big deal. Well, I was wrong. the exact same thing is wrong with this "new" one. So I looked "deep" into reviews and sure enough...bad reviews almost all around. I found several with the exact same problems. So beware: looks like a great deal price wise, but unfortunately, not so much.

My husband and I were excited to get a new laptop with a bigger screen, but the new Windows 8 is extremely frustrating. At first look I thought it would operate a lot like my Windows smart phone apps on the screen. But once you get into something it is almost impossible to get out. The invisible menus disappear and don't want to reappear and seem to be in a different place all the time. It is difficult to manuver. And right click menu is not much help either. Worst of all it came with no instruction book. It came with a small sheet of paper with about four cheats to go by. What a change from our other computers at home and work. There should be more visible and less hidden. Even minimizing a program to go back to another is not a simple task. It is crazy. Finding apps and even manuvering the screen was a little bit of a challenge. The screen resolution is great though. I really wish I had bought a Windows 7 computer. Sometimes change is not a good thing.

I only spent 398 so I was not expecting the best but it is awesome. Windows 7 gives it a very modern look. My pictures are in one of the squares and it scrolls. I can hit the window sign button and it takes me back to the start page in case I get lost. I can watch a movie on netflex and be online at the same time. You will have to buy the word package. The movie I watched was very clear and large. I have all my favorites in each little square and it is always up to date with the latest news and weather. I have had it for one week and I am very pleased.

This Laptop is perfect especially the bright lcd screen. I bought this 2 weeks ago not one problem with it! everything works great. I usually do not write feedbacks on purchases I make but after reading the reviews I felt I should. The large screen and the large keyboard function fantastic. I have watched a few dvd movies and the picture was very sharp and vibrant looking this is the best laptop I have ever owned and believe me the price is hard to beat for all it offers.

I tried two other laptops in the last 3 weeks both were terrible. I gave it one last shot with this one because my last computer was a gateway and it lasted 5 years and is still going strong but, I wanted to get something newer. Processor is lightning fast. I just upgraded internet to time warner ultimate which gives up to 50mbs download speed and this laptop is able to break 28mbs even connected wireless. Our desktop doesn't go that fast and it is direct connected. Everything is fast and windows 8 wasn't impressive on the other two computers but, on this one I love it. Definitely buy this as I have never seen this good of a computer for under $400 and you will not find a better deal!!!

Annoying keyboard

Customer review by hanmeng

The big screen and 500GB memory are great, and it seems to work well now. However, the first day or so I was using it, it crashed several times (message was something about "SYSTEM_EXTENSION_" possibly because of Firefox?). It hasn't crashed since, though. One drawback is the Windows 8 software. First of all, it's very different from XP, Vista, or Windows 7. The other problem is that Windows 8 is really meant for a touchscreen, and this computer does not have that. For anyone who finds the new system hard to master, I strongly suggest downloading classicshell (http://www.classicshell.net/), which you can tweak to make Windows 8 like XP or Windows 7. What annoys me is the keyboard: to use the f1-f12 function keys, you have to press the Fn key, otherwise they're mapped to special functions like the Gateway manual, or switching display output to an external monitor, or disabling the computer’s communication devices, things I never need. And you need to press Fn for the "home" and "end" key (they are repurposed to left and right arrows). In the height of uselessness, the keyboard also has dedicated keys for the $ and € symbols.

Bought this laptop today. I am the network administrator for our business, and we've had pretty good luck with the gateway units in our office. We use them every day. One had a failed Motherboard recently and Gateway replaced it free of charge and did so quickly. So I bought this one for myself for both home and the office. I paid just 350 dollars for it as the price has been rolled back on it. The AMD E-1 processor has surprising speed for such a low power unit. Don't get me wrong, it's no Intel i7, but it's more than quick enough for daily and professional applications that don't require a lot of graphics. Also for first day usage the battery has been operating for 3 hours and I am still at 45%. Impressive, simply impressive. Gateway's are built/owned by Acer, and the quality of that really shows. Excellent product, and the Walmart service folks were great. Looking forward to several years of reliable operation.

My somewhat trusty Toshiba finally crashed and had to be replaced after 5 years. I purchased a very nice acer from Walmart last year for my wife but they didn't have any Acers for around $400 so I opted for this computer. I finally have all my files and pictures transferred and life is good. The computer is better than expected and I haven't had any of the problems with the mouse as others who rated this item 1 star have indicated. Also, windows 8 is just great after you get accustomed to it. Windows 8 and the computer both work much faster than my previous system. I'm old and not very tech savvy so if I can get the hang of 8 anybody can. Love it! Knock on wood.
