I just got done returning this and the smaller one to walmart. My main reasons for doing so:

- sketchy website for the PC maker itself, scant on details especially in the support area. Appears to be a phone number and email only. No documentation, not online, not in the box, not on the PC itself in digital format.

- soldered RAM. Yes 16GB is probably fine but we like options, don't we?

- lack of access to replace even the battery (let alone HD or RAM) without dismantling the unit. One small door on the bottom to access an m.2 port, otherwise you are taking out like 8-10 screws to remove the whole bottom.

-very minor gripe and not a dealbreaker, but another "negative" to be aware of is that it has that matte finish that absolutely loooooves fingerprints, smudges, etc.

- Sound was my final straw - very horribly tinny, even for a laptop.

Now if you can forgo all of the above, it is a very nice feeling build, sturdy, great screen, good touchpad, nice keys etc.

And if you want to get your fill of the "wow gateway really? Is it 1995 again haha. I'll take one with a floppy drive lol" just go read the other thread. It's all been done.
Agree to all of this, I returned my 14", I'd also like to add that the installation of windows on the laptop I received saw me as a low level user to an organization. I was quite limited on what I was allowed to do such as creating files or having applications created in the program files file on the C drive. I've owned several laptops and never had the kinda of windows permission issues I had with this laptop. Could've just been the one I got, but I returned my laptop two days after getting it and have no interest in giving a different one another chance. Idk why they're promoting the tuned by thx thing. I compared the sound with my 2014 MacBook air and the MBA was significantly better.

Gateway computers seen to run SUPER slowly after a very short while, and are prone to overheating.
Since Gateway (Acer) hasn't released computers for 7 years I find this comment to be not helpful. That's like saying "the 90's mustangs were slow so all mustangs are slow even the current ones"

Good write up thanks for the heads up. For the price I think it's pretty good for the specs but has some drawbacks that is for sure.

My favorite isn their advertising is "Tuned by THX" yeah ok laptop speakers even tuned are going to suck no matter what. Although my Dell XPS 17 with a small sub wasn't too bad.

BTW Gateway was bought out by Acer in 2007 so you're buying an Acer that is why their website has nothing going on. Although I think they should pay someone to update it. I worked there for years in the cow spotted building (still there just went to visit family and drove by it). Good computer company, sad to see them go back in the day. I left a few months before Acer took over. They held on to about 50 people in North Sioux City (accounting etc) up till I left Iowa in 2017. When I went back it didn't look like anything gateway related was around except the cow spots.

Fair, but I got one of the last ones released and it was NOT a good experience, and since it was their most recent product it's the most recent data point.

Maybe things have changed but it helps to know that they weren't good build computers before.

The Gateway website says it's equipped with Windows-S - which totally explains the limitations you were dealing with. Microsoft has it set up so that if Users want to get out of "S-mode", you simply upgrade for free through the Microsoft Store App (should've been pre-installed on the machine).

Bought this but returning because the touchpad is randomly unresponsive. May have just gotten a lemon.

If you are spending $500, there are so much better options. Man.... Walmart cheap laptops are getting expensive.

Having said that, my $200 motile Ryzen 3 has proved more than capable. Short of playing games, more than enough for media, office use. I just looked it up, they are selling it over $350, no Bueno at that price.

Which options? This seems pretty solid for the price.

Your experience with a Gateway computer 7 years ago is totally useless information. It is not even the same company as it was 7 years ago. Besides that, you can find similar stories about every brand of computer. There have been specific models of Dell and HP known for overheating issues. That doesn't mean that every computer they ever make has the same design. These companies make numerous models and change every year. So the idea that your experience from 7 years ago is relevant is ridiculous.

It does not even require an upgrade. You just turn off S mode.
