Last year I thought I was getting a good deal on a Gateway computer. Man, it's been nothing but trouble since the day I got it. First the hard drive just stopped working. The guys at Gateway said "Sorry about that, we'll send you a new one". Fine, it was covered under warranty, good. What sucked however, is I lost ALL of my data, without the chance to back up. This includes all of my Cakewalk files and songs, which were the product of long hours and hard work. Granted, I should have backed up, but hard drives should NOT just "stop working". Next, the power supply goes. Fine. Whatever. It takes them three freaking weeks, but I get a new power supply. Now, just after my warranty expired, my video card goes. The display on my computer goes all funky, and there are other problems. No big deal, I figure, a new video card or whatever, and I'm good to go. But NO... Gateway's video cards are integrated into the motherboard! I need a whole new freakin' motherboard!!! I took it in last Tuesday, and told them what was wrong. They said, fine, 2 to 3 days. I figured this was pretty good. TODAY I called them to find out that they haven't even ordered the part yet, and it will be another week or two before I get it back. To the tune of $186. Unfeakin believable.
