Today we look at a pair of Gateway desktop computers: the Gateway DX4822-01 and the Gateway one ZX4800-02. These attractive desktops come with some nice features and shouldn't break your budget.
The Gateway DX4822-01 is a mainstream budget desktop available in retail stores. This fixed configuration tower offers competitive performance with intelligent design. The DX4822-01 is available for around $500, and comes with a standard one-year warranty on parts and labor. Technical support is available online through the companyís website or via their 24/7 toll-free line.
The Gateway DX4822-01ís retail configuration has a 2.6 GHz Intel Pentium E5300 processor with 2 MB of L2 cache. This dual-core processor offers enough performance to satisfy users in need of a desktop for basic tasks like surfing the Internet or media viewing. In short, itís enough for budget desktop shoppers.
The DX4822-01 also has 6 GB of DDR2 SDRAM that lets you run multiple applications at once without problems. The 1 TB hard drive on board offers more than enough space for most peopleís music files and other important data. In terms of graphics, the DX4822-01 comes with an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X4500 card. Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Edition is the operating system that comes pre-installed, as seems to be the case with most current desktops on the market.
Other features beyond the core components include a DVD drive so you can listen to CDs, burn custom CDs, and watch your favorite DVDs with the DX4822-01. A built-in Multi-in-one media reader allows you to transfer data with ease from other devices like digital cameras. The media reader supports various formats, including miniSD cards, microSD cards, and Memory Sticks, just to name a few. A FireWire port is also on board for connecting to other devices. Unfortunately, there is no integrated Wi-Fi for you to connect to wireless networks, so you will have to upgrade it yourself for that capability.
Luckily, there is plenty of expansion room in the Gateway DX4822-01 for you to upgrade its components if you need to. You can add an extra hard drive if the 1TB drive is not enough. You can also add another optical drive in addition to the included DVD drive. The 6 GB of RAM can be upgraded to 8 GB. You also have expansion openings for additional graphics cards and wireless networking in the form of two standard PCI slots, a 1x PCI Express slot, and a 16x PCI Express slot.
