So as some of you know, my old laptop took a crapper a couple days ago. I took this as a sign it was time for a new one, and decided to have Christmas a little early this year. I headed over to Best Buy and picked up this BeaUte

$150 instant rebate I think is what really sold the product. I've never had a Gateway before, is there anything I need to be on the look out for?

i didnt like my gateway, but tha was 8 years ago and it was a PC not a laptop. I have seen their whatever its called where the screen spins around, looks cool and seems pretty nice, i think its called tablet laptop or something like that.

Gateways, nothing but trouble with them. My old roommate got a good deal on one (he worked at BB) and he returned it within a week. Just the worse laptop ever.

to be all honest my family just bought a new gateway PC. Its by far the worst computer we have ever purchased. Our 4 year old computer runs better and smoother then out new gateway. On another note i did just purchase a new HP and i think its great.

I thought Gateway was bought out by someone?

I was on the Canadian Best Buy site this morning and cruising the mac power books. They had a French language one with a mislableled price of $195.95. I jumped at the chance to try and buy one or two but they were sold out unfortunately.
Would've been a good reason to re-learn French if I got a mac book pro for $200, haha.
