The Gateway MC7833u laptop is my third laptop and it is by far the BEST!! I am a college student and this laptop is great for school and just for fun. Watching movies on this laptop is a blast! The screen is very clear and the pictures show up as if they're in High Definition. Another great thing about this laptop is the illuminated media buttons on the side of the keyboard. It's very convenient because I can use those controls to control the volume, pause/play/stop/rewind/fast forward my music without going to my media player and leaving the screen that I'm on. This laptop is SUPER fast and gives no technical problems. It doesn;t slow down when you have many applications running at the same time. It is very easy to navigate and customize. It comes equipped with wallpapers and screen savers so that you can personalize your laptop to match your personality. There are also a bunch of fun games like Solitare, Spider Solitare, Mahjong Titan, Chess Titans, Inkball, and many more.
