Are gateway laptops a good buy? I'm looking to buy a laptop for college, I've heard dell laptops are the worst and HP are pretty good. However, the gateway laptop I found is an excellent deal. I just don't want to have the laptop broken in a year. I will be using the laptop for school, gaming, and other multimedia purposes so I'd say the laptop needs to be pretty reliable.
Well, the only game I would play is counter-strike 1.6 and thats a very old game. I also plan to watch movies/videos and occasionally do video/graphic work. However, it will primarily be for counter-strike 1.6 and just school work. I did research and heard that pretty much any new laptop will run 1.6 do you know anything about that?
I also heard alot of bad stuff about dell. After 4 years my sister's dell started over heating and the hard drive crashed. She eventually got a new laptop a few weeks later before her school started and the laptop crashed within the first week of owning it.
What do you think about the intel media accelerator 4500?
