I purchased this laptop in May of 2008 at Best Buy. My main reason is that I was going into the hospital and I wanted to keep in touch with my 4 year old via webcam. That was the only problem this computer has. THe webcam freezes up all the time. Worthless in my opinion. But I am so glad I did get this computer. I love Gateway. This is the first computer I have gotten and had (Other than the camera) NO problems with. It is fast and can handle all my photo's I upload and my games. This laptop is definatley worth it.
