Gateway DX4870-UB2C Review

The gateway dx4870-ub2c is an old-school midtower that delivers respectable productivity performance and plenty of storage for an appealing price.

Work from home is becoming more and more common and having the right computer to help get you through the day is important. This Gateway desktop pc is just the ticket with its impressive processing power, 6GB of RAM and amazing 1TB hard drive.

This computer is equipped with a Intel Core i5-3330 3.0 GHz quad-core processor and comes with 8GB of DDR3 memory (expandable to 32GB). Store all your files on the 1TB (7200-rpm) hard disk drive, and stay connected with family and coworkers using Bluetooth technology and dual-band wireless LAN. Microsoft Windows 8 is pre-installed for easy use and the DVD+RW DL drives make it convenient to enjoy your favorite media.

With a score of 153 on PC WorldBench, the DX4870-UB2C isn't stellar by today's standards but will likely do just fine for routine student and small-business computing tasks. It also sips power, which is a plus for back-to-school shoppers looking to save on energy costs.
