The gateway model # M-152S is a good inexpensive computer. I have been having this computer for about a year and a half now. My reason for buying this particullar model was for the red color (it went perfect for the high school that my daughter graduated and the college she now attends). The computer is lightweight.....which is great especially for a college student. I was looking at the duo and the memory; which both wasa plus. This computer has the windows vista home premium built in. The vista program had it "bugs" at first but its better now. I love the fact that you can switch between your windows that you have opened. The webcam is a 1.3 megapixel; which has poor quailty therefore its not a good for videos. The processor is an Intel (R) Core 2 Duo.It only has 2 gb of memory; which at the time it was plenty but now that we take alot of pictures we need more memory. Overall I have no major complaints; it is a good computer.
