Gateway vs acer

Hello,

Costco is offering a Gateway computer in the retail store for $699, and an ACER computer online only at cost.com also for $699. Which is a more reliable company/computer??? There is also a SONY in the retail store for $200 MORE .... $899 (also on a sale price). Any comments ...this will only be used while away at a second home about 10 weeks a year, and very occassional on a trip. thanks for your help. HJL90815@yahoo.com

More about gateway acer
  1. Gateway and Acer are the same company with two brand names. Like HP/Compaq.

    The sony is better quality.
  2. I cant really say one is better than the other. IMHO acer is cheap and simple for NOT powerusers at all. They make pretty and cheap products. I would personally go acer ive had less issues with them than gateway. That and yelling at their tech support gets you free parts...Good Luck.

    THEY ARE THE SAME COMPANY!
  4. Based on my past work experience, I wouldn't go for Acer/Gateway systems. Personally, I've never purchased a Acer/Gateway system because of that. But that's in the past. Maybe the quality has been improved a lot lately. When you've decided which model to go, read more reveiws before buying it.

    HTH.
  5. Ok I guess they are. Learn something new everyday.
