It was a fairly mid-range laptop when purchased, and is still going strong. It's been tossed about, travelled to several countries, and been put to use for countless tasks. That being said, I know statistics are against me, but if you don't plan on voiding your warranty, you can potentially get a replacement if something were to go wrong. Paying extra for brand-name, typically doesn't help you much.
I ordered from Amazon 8GB
Worked out of the box with GATEWAY FX P-7805u works prefectly but somehow, in windows 7 system rating Indexing i went from 5.9 overall to a 5.8. & in memory category is the change it went form a 5.9 to a 5.8 why would this happen please email me @.
