Acer vs. Gateway

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.

Re: Acer vs. Gateway

I have a Gateway and Acer was actually the manufacturer. It is possible yours is the same. Check the BIOS and info from CPUz.

Hello,

 

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.

 

Good day.
