That sounds good for the price

The one I'm getting next week is $349

1 gig of memory

320 gig hard drive

Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools

yeah i think ill buy it, the only thing that bugs me is the hard drive interface is still EIDI and most hard drives are quickly becoming SATA, oh well

get itzzzz!!!
It all makes sense

It's pretty decent, but it probably has an integrated video card, which is no good if you're planning on gaming with it.

Looks good to me.

Until I read "Gateway".

But, like you said, it IS refurbished, so the person may have made it a lasting computer.

So...yea. I'd say go for it.

Looks good mate.

IF you want it for gaming... just bung a £60 ($100-120) graphics card in. Just make sure the PSU is up to the job!

As long as your motherboard is compatable to SATA for whenever you want to switch over you should be fine.
