The Gateway MX6421 laptop is an okay overall laptop, but it has some annoying tendencies. First of all it take 5-10 minutes for it to be able to be used (for instance to go on the internet). Second its disk tray pops open for no reason at all or if I slightly bump it. It can be very sluggish and often its fan revs up and is very noisy for 5-20 minutes. On the upside is that I've had it for 3 or 4 years and have never had any huge problems (excluding the viruses I've gotten, but they've all been easy to remove). The screen is large, but could be brighter, yet this laptop is very portable. The battery life could be longer, as it only lasts 2 hours and 20-45 minutes. Overall its your (slightly under) average laptop. Also its tch support is dreadful.
