looks like i'm sorrounded by criminals, mayonikks u just proved my point. Bitttchees like u trying to screw ur people from buying a $500 laptop for #170,000 ($1400). How about i sell u ''an old piece of poo '' for #2m and u tell me how that feels ppunnk.
i have used a gateway notebook before and i can confirm that , it rocks , i totally enjoyed , i cant quite remember the name now , but i got it new and then sold it to a guy here in nairaland , the dude still thank me to this very day
it all depends. if they both have the same specs then i would go for hp. if the gateway specs are higher or more advanced then go for gateway. also consider the availability of compactible parts for each one.
