    After reading your blog post I decided to buy a Core i5-2410M based notebook though not from Gateway – I do not trust their name. They put a lot of unnecessary software in it. I instead prefer Sony or Toshiba – Slightly expensive but worth.

    This model got a best buy rating from consumer reports. Based on your info and that rating, I will buy it.

      I was considering buying this laptop (or a gateway closest to this) from best buy. You suggested deleting the software that is already on there and clearing your registry. What kind of software comes on it from best buy that is unnecessary? and is clearing it out an easy task?
