We bought the Gateway GT5242E PC computer about 5 years ago. Then the one we were running on was breaking down, it had a lot of cheap parts in it too. This was like a dream when we first used it. It's slowing down now, but that's how technology works right. It has a dvd/ dc player, it has several usb drives which is great for all the new technology that uses usb's to hook into. It also has a memory card slot to read them. So it makes getting photos off your memory card easy. Or getting information off your flash drive is easy too. It came with wonderful speakers that are great quality. It also came with a keyboard, the same one I am using now. lol I like this keyboard, it's not uncomfortable to use. It's very easy. This computer has lasted us so long. It has even had cd's/dvd's shoved into it by a our toddler and still works great. There are a couple things on it we have not used. Like the CF/microdrive. I haven't used that yet.
