$650.00 Released September, 2010

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Built-in graphics processing can handle all jobs but gaming. Fast CPU is capable of handling most jobs easily. Large number of USB ports for any purpose.

The Cons:Gaming enthusiasts will need to install an additional video card. Large capacity drive can have reduced access speed, slower operation. Case does not support a large number of cooling fans.

For users asking for a desktop to handle gaming, multitasking, and media projects, Gateway has delivered its answer in the form of the DX4840-37, a model slightly scaled down in price and features (such as less DDR3 memory) from the DX4840-11e but still offering a powerful Intel Core i3-550 processor, Intel Graphics Media Accelerator HD, and 1TB of storage.

For more demanding applications and for more tasks at the same time, the Intel Core processor uses Turbo Boost to give it an extra jolt of power, while 4GB of DDR3 memory and Intel Graphics Media Accelerator HD ensures the visuals (even advanced 3D animations) are high-quality and high-definition every time. While the 1TB of storage is impressive, it's worth noting it's also eco-friendly thanks to variable RPM that keeps the hard drive powering up in times of heavy use and powering down when it's not needed. For interfacing across media formats, the DX4840-37 includes 10 USB ports, 1 HDMI port, a Multi-in-1 Digital Media Reader and a DVD DL drive. Included is a copy of Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium.
