    I have a Dell now. It's 10 years old. I've had to upgrade a few things over the years (power supply, gpu, ram, etc). But, it's finally starting to poop out. The comp we just bought has the 3rd gen i5 processor at 3.2 g/hz, 8 gb of ram (unfortunately it's only on 2 dimms, so not too much more room for upgrading it), 1TB hd. All for $489. Throw in the monitor for another $110, and I think that's a pretty solid deal, especially since I'm not into gaming as much as I used to. I'll have to drop another $100-$200 on a gpu eventually, but that won't be too bad.

    Gateways ****ing suck. Acer sucks. My wife bought a Gateway 3 or so years ago, a higher end one, too, and it's NEVER worked properly. She had an Acer laptop prior that she always had issues with and when she went to buy her desktop she swore not to buy an Acer. Little did we know that Acer bought Gateway.

I couldn't afford it right now and couldn't get financing through Dell, so she laid out the cash for me. She was also able to talk the sales rep into throwing in a 21.5" LED monitor for $110, lol.

        Eventually, I'll have to buy a gpu for it, because it's coming with an integrated card, but the base system only cost $489. Can't really complain about it.
        They're incredibly expensive, but if you ever decide to go with Macs, you won't regret it. I have a 27 inch iMac, and a MacBook, and I don't think I'll ever go back to PC.

                  Well my Gateway is just fine. What was specifically wrong with it?

                        Well, originally they installed the wrong drivers for the wireless card. Support told her her model didn't come with one, even when she supplied a link that showed that it did.

                        Then, the issue that's been plaguing her comp for about 2 years now, is it will spontaneously shut down. It might be a heat issue with the gpu (there were some reports that Acer didn't put enough cooling power in her particular build. Of course we never bought a secondary fan to see if that'd help, lol. Either way, for the price she paid for the damned thing, it should have had that issue to begin with.

                          Don't ask me why, but I'm anti-Apple. No good reason for it, lol.

                            they just look bulky and weird. Macs are so much more elegant.

                                Who cares how it looks? As long as it does laptop-like things, then I'm good.
