The Western Digital drive that comes with this Gateway DX4860 is a reasonably fast drive. It benches around 81MB/second read speed and about 76MB/second write speed, which is sufficient to make Windows and most applications "feel" fast in most situations.

Question

Will Gateway Monitor FPD2020 work?

It looks like this http://www.retrevo.com/s/Gateway-FPD2020-Monitors-review-manual/id/23225ci060/t/1-2/

I have that monitor. I was just wondering if it would hook up with that monitor just fine since they are both Gateway products?

answer 2
Both Windows Vista Home Premium and Windows 7 Home Premium have the built-in software to connect to wireless hot-spots. However, your computer needs hardware (a wireless card or USB device) in order to physically access that hot-spot. Many desktops and most laptops come with the necessary wireless software and hardware to connect to wireless hot-spots.

This Gateway DX4860 comes with everything you'll need to connect wirelessly to hot-spots. But, in order to run your own wireless network, you'll need a router, which does NOT come with this computer.

USB 3.0 is a new USB standard which allows for higher data transfer speeds. You will need to check with IBM regarding Lotus compatibility with Windows 7.

answer 2
This Gateway DX4860 computer does NOT come with USB 3 ports.

Simply put, USB 3 is theoretically about 10 times faster than USB 2. It uses the same plug (called a port or interface). However, although the specification supports up to 4.8 GB per second of transfer, please be careful before spending money on hype. Most of the reviews I've read indicate that USB 3 devices do NOT perform anywhere near their maximum specification.

(Please ask only one question per submission.)
