Twelve years ago I purchased an Acer Aspire 9410-4933. After it had gone through 2 home fires and a flood I was afraid it would die soon and bought a Gateway.
Within one year the Gateway burnt itself up in the power connection. I was told it would cost $80.00 just to look at it plus whatever it cost to get it fixed. I am on disability and don't have $80.00 just to have someone look at the Gateway and tell me what's wrong.
I pulled out my old faithfull Acer and have been using it ever since. What laptop do I recommend, Acer of course.

Acer purchased Gateway some five years ago. The models sold are all Acer brand products now but the name Gateway was kept for certain products.
