Ehh, its ok....Posted .
I got this computer for my business, not knowing how much better an intel quad core is than the AMD cpu that this machine comes with. I did a google search for all-in-one's with quad core cpu's for business applications. I found this pc... http://www.cybernetman.com/en/products/allinone_lcd_pc/ionegx31.cfm . looks like it comes with a quad core and touchscreen.No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Excellent Computer overall!!Posted .
History: At first, I was searching for a computer for my gf's sister to use and she was glued on the whole touch screen idea of a computer. And so I did some research and found that the Gateway ZX was cheap in price, excellent in hardware, speed, and the touch was very much innovative. And so after I helped set up her Gateway computer and played with it, I completely had an urge to replace my old custom computer since I've had problems with it lately and I was tired of all the wires and customizations and a few hardware failure (fan went out on my old computer). And so I went and did some extensive research on the whole All in one computers and found out that this was the best computer around my price range and the best on the market for touchscreens at the moment. And so I had purchased the same Gateway ZX for my bday and WOW! This computer is completely amazing!!! I've never been really interested in upgrading from XP to Windows 7 due to Vista discouraging me, but I'm now completely sold. Windows 7 is easy to use and very reliable in terms of speed, programs, and transitioning from XP or Vista. Also there's no messy wires to play with, the computer is fast, reliable, and definitely worth it's price. Gaming: I originally wanted a new computer for PC gaming because of my old computer slowly dieing out on me. I usually play some PC games that require a better average graphics card and this computer gave me no problems what so ever. Graphics card excels in offering an above average gaming experience for an affordable price that I can assure you is worth it. Although I'm sadden that the graphics card does not have it's own allocated memory but it does hold on it's own when it comes to gaming in HD. Movies: Excellent Quality when it comes to watching movies/videos of sorts. Does not come with bluray but I have my PS3 for that part. Operating System: All the people around me have been transitioning into Windows 7 and have been completely satisfied with the transition. Like I've said, Windows 7 is easy to use, excellent in it's own category and upholds the value to play Windows XP based programs/games and what not. Sound: The sound is nearly above average as the volume does match it's price. However, I have a 5.1 surround sound connected that establishes the sound at a better quality. CPU speed: Although the graphics card is integrated, I can assure you that graphics card does not fully strain the CPU's usage in terms of movies, gaming, or web searching. Overall: I've played with computers for about ten years and I've came across/fixed computers of all types. And I can say that this product is definitely worth investing money into when it comes to personal use, business use, college, or anything else that maintains with the current standards of today's computers and speed. I'd give this computer a 9.4/10I would recommend this to a friend

Great Purchase for First-Time All-In-One BuyersPosted .
I purchased this Gateway in need of a replacement for my Dell Inspiron 1521 laptop, which sadly burnt out only 3-1/2 years after I purchased it. I wanted something that had some portability like laptops, but some power of a standard desktop. In contrast to the $1500+ I spent on my Inspiron, this $700 All-In-One has met more than I imagined. The touchscreen is easy to use, large yet compact enough to comfortably sit on any table or desk. The entire system is roughly the same depth as a newer 20" LCD TV, and roughly one-half to one-quarter the depth of LCD TV's made in 2008 and prior years . (My best friend's partner was confused when he first saw me using it. To him, it looked like I was playing "pretend computer".) The power cable features a large adapter, but one that consumes only 135W, making it slightly less power efficient than most laptops; also, the connector is curved, allowing you to lay the system in your lap or on a flat surface without the cord sticking out. Processing is highly efficient. Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit loads, I log in, and the whole system is ready to go in under 40 seconds. You may find yourself waiting for nothing on occasion with this machine--it does load that promptly. The ATI Radeon HD graphics are superb, and most games I play (including Allods and Elder Scrolls: Oblivion) run very smoothly on high settings. The screen is beautiful for watching movies on Netflix or DVD. One critically important facet of this computer is productivity. As a web designer, efficient running of the Adobe CS suite, ability to move quickly between design, code, and testing, and transfer speeds to external media are key. I'm happy to state this system allows me to design and code more efficiently than ever. There are only three noted drawbacks to this system, ones previously mentioned by other buyers. Firstly, the system does not have a matte screen, meaning that glare will persist under most conditions. Secondly, the keyboard does not have a notification light for Caps Lock, Scroll Lock, or Num Lock. Lastly, Windows 7 Home Premium uses "hybrid sleep" which resulted in my system freezing several times when I returned from stepping away. Here are quick fixes for all three though: 20" Anti-glare filters can be purchased for $15-$20 online or in some stores. Using one will also help protect the touchscreen from physical wear. To avoid issues with the Caps Lock button, go to Control Panel > Clock, Language, and Region > Region and Language > Keyboards and Languages (Tab) > 'Change keyboards...' (Button). When the "Text Services and Input Languages" pops up, go to Advanced Key Settings (Tab). At the top, it will say "To turn off Caps Lock" and feature two options; click the option saying "Press the SHIFT key". Then click 'Apply' or 'OK' at the bottom of the window. This will automatically turn Caps Lock off when you press the 'Shift' key on your keyboard. Free software is available online to display on-screen notifications when Caps Lock, Scroll Lock, and Num Lock are active too. *** Read below for important information before turning off Windows 7's 'Hybrid Sleep' feature. *** *What do I lose by turning off 'Hybrid Sleep'?* In Windows 7, 'hybrid sleep' is similar to the auto-shutdown on laptops when the battery does not have enough power to continue running. 'Hybrid sleep' stores your activities and open files in the Hibernation file then proceeds to the sleep state. If a power outage occurs while your computer is in a sleep state, Windows 7 will load your activities and open files from Hibernation. *** Follow these instructions to turn on or turn off 'Hybrid Sleep' in Windows 7 Home Premium: *** The easiest solution to prevent freezes with Windows 7 'hybrid sleep' is to turn the feature off through your Power Options. Go to Control Panel > System and Security > Power Options. Next to the power plan selected, click 'Change plan settings'. Click 'Change advanced power settings'. In the window that pops up, from the list, double-click 'Sleep' then double-click 'Allow hybrid sleep'. In the drop-down next to 'Setting', select 'Off'. You can also follow these same instructions to turn 'hybrid sleep' on: In the drop-down below 'Allow hybrid sleep', next to 'Setting', select 'On' instead. Like most computer buyers, I'm well aware of Gateway's poor architecture for their products, but this product is one that clearly had a great investment by the company. It is loved not only by reviewers and consumers, but also Best Buy staff, as one promptly told me at a store in Tucson, AZ that him and several colleagues are "anxious to get one too".I would recommend this to a friend

Delightful All-in-One!Posted .
Its been an Excellent Replacement to our 3yr old HP Slimline s3200n (AMD based as well) Kitchen PC... Wife loves the touch screen interface so she can jump around the Recipe/Food Network websites... Great Value/Features for money - shopped extensively but comparable machines were either refurbished at this price or higher. THX sound a bonus compared to the out-going Intel based ZX-4800 and 7200 RPM hard drive is big Plus! Gateway has got this one right... If you're looking for a Realistic Family PC (not hardcore Gaming machine) can't go wrong with this 4300-01e and the Kids Love the Lagoon Screen saver which makes for a virtual Fish Tank in your room :)I would recommend this to a friend

Great desktop replacement - keyboard not so greatPosted .
Summary: A great PC with a nice screen, no clutter of wires and performs well. It's a good value when compared with other all-in-one PCs out there. The only disappointment is the keyboard. We bought this as Christmas present to replace my in-laws 10 year old desktop that had a mini-tower case. The original PC had been upgraded with hard disk and memory, but was just plain slow and the 14" monitor wasn't ideal for people with 80 year old eye sight. The 14" monitor also was the size of a Sherman tank and took up half the desktop surface. The tower took up knee space, as it was stored under the desk. This all-in-one is an ideal replacement for reclaiming that space. The screen is bright, clear and easy to read in all lighting conditions. I played with the touch screen features and it's nice but I doubt that my in-laws will venture away from the keyboard and mouse. To me, the only disappointing aspect is the keyboard. There are no adjustable feet to tilt the keyboard as most other keyboards have. The keys are mediocre. This will have no impact on my in-laws since they are one finger typists, but others may end up replacing the keyboard. This PC was my first experience with Windows 7. I have worked mostly with XP Pro and avoided Vista after trying some friends computers with it. The PC comes with Windows 7 Home Premium. One of the components lacking on this version is the host for remote desktop that is packaged in Windows XP. A quick Google search allowed me to find a patch to install and modify the registry to enable this feature. This is important because I take remote control of the PC across state lines to help my in-laws if they have a problem. Most people won't miss this Windows component. The PC is preloaded with MS Works and a starter edition of MS Office 2010. The nice thing about the free starter version built in is sufficient for most people's needs. You can register online and pay the upgrade price for the full version to activate it. I kept the free version and elected not to install the full version of MS Office 2003 that we had for the old PC. Other than getting used to the new Office interface, the free starter edition is fine and meets the need. You need to create your own system restore and backup disks, as none are shipped with the PC. This takes a little time, but is not technically challenging and highly recommended so if there is s crash, the PC can be restored to its original state. The built-in WiFi was easy to setup and worked out of the box. It also has a built in Ethernet with standard RJ-45 jack on the back. I tried both but will be going wireless to remove clutter in the room this PC will be used. The only connections will be the power adapter and a USB cable to the printer, since we won't be upgrading to a wireless printer (yet...). The performance on this PC is impressive. There is 4GB memory installed and I opened a number of Windows with various applications to load up the processor. There was no noticeable degradation in performance. It comes pre-installed with a McAfee antivirus and firewall package that has a trial review period. I uninstalled this and put on Avast Antivirus since I had experiences in the past with McAfee hogging system resources. When my in-laws opened this at our house on Christmas day, I had already setup their mail, transferred files from their old PC and configured the WiFi settings so it would work by just turning it on. We demonstrated the touch screen setting using Google earth and took a "drive" around the locations all the family members lived. It was an impressive display on the capability of the PC showing the display, WiFi speed and touch screen possibilities. I am so impressed with this PC that I'm thinking of replacing my own desktop PC, a full tower unit that I built myself. I'm ready to declutter my desk with this all-in-one.I would recommend this to a friend

Great all-in-one, easy set up, great productPosted .
I now buy all ny computers from Best Buy and drove them crazy exchanging 3 desktop pc's in 2 weeks. I initialliy was going to purchase a gateway tower with intel i3, 6 memiry and 1TG HD. However, I looked at all the wires on my old desktop that I purchased the Gateway 4300.01e.I took out my old desktop and installed this one in 20 minutes and had it on the internet. The AMD 2.7 processor is really fast and quiet and the monitor is so clear and bright. I'm impressed! This is my first gateway as I always buy Dell. For $649 this is a steal, so go to Best Buy and check it out!I would recommend this to a friend

I am not a computer expert, but this computer is wonderful, in my opinion. It is very fast which is definitely a change for me. I love the touch screen...I use it more and more as I become accustomed to it. The wireless keyboard and mouse are so convenient, and it looks great on my desk. The 20" screen is huge and the colors are brilliant. I do a lot of my classes online, so this has been a terrific asset. I owned a low quality laptop before this one, so I have little to compare it to. I have used a couple of friend's computers, though, and this one beats them all hands down! We have only had this computer a few days, so after owning it a little longer, I will leave further feedback. But for now, I am very happy with it.I would recommend this to a friend
