This one is a true winner - Gateway has it right! Great value for the money! I Have truly tested it with a number of applications demand on AMD processor & it doesn't even blink! I have not been a fan of AMD, but their Athlon II/X2 appears to be a run for the money against Intel's latest Dual Core. I previously had a 6-year old Sony All-in-One & like this type of desktop PC. That one was a 15" screen & this 20" really does the trick - bright & just right for my workspace. I did replace the Gateway keyboard with a Microsoft one. The fan can be a little noisy at times, but must remember what the old Sony as like - large fan running across the back & could really hear it all the time! I was considering a much more expensive HP, but glad I saved the money & went with this one.
