Seems like a good move for Gateway because every gateway pc I've ever used was trash.

Maybe Acer can turn them around...

Thats a very good point!

All the gateway PCs I have seen are cheapo school pcs.. and that was back in 1998!

i have an acer pc, and its nice, its fast, and its quiet

(when you get all the un-necesery junk off the hard drive)

no overclocking like, but, its not a bad pc

dual core 3800+ and 2 gig of DDR2 for £380 ish

onboard graphics, but PCI-E slot

160 gig hard drive

media center edition, fairly decent in my opinion

comes with card reader

300W power suply n the usual junk

My Gateway lappy is a little more than 8 years old and the battery still holds a charge for around 3 hrs or so.

and that battery speaks nothing of the computer's quality lol. Then again, their older systems seemed to be alright, but there more recent are completely crap, like compaq.
