Detailed review
this pc is very good: lightweight, thin but rough and simple.

I have been using this pc as a netbook for 4 years now (yes, even before they invented the "netbook" concept).

I only upgraded the RAM to 1GB and the hard disk capacity to 80GB and it ran Windows Vista and now runs Windows 7 very well. The only thing I don't like is that due to the video card, it cannot run aero but if you look it as a netbook, it works enough.

What I really like about it is that it is really thin and lighweight and is confortagle to write in. Te counterpart is that it can heat a lot. If you think in buying one of these, just take note this pc is not longer available in the market and that even Gateway has taken it out of their inventory (only the link given in the specs is working by now).
