At first, I wasn't terribly impressed. I had been accustomed to working
with a Toshiba Protege M405 at home and when I purchased the Gateway for
exclusive use at the office, my initial impression of the machine when
I put it into action was noticeably lacking in enthusiasm or excitement.
I've since come to appreciate this notebook for something much more
impressive that I couldn't gauge out of the box, and that was its
amazing reliability and performance over time.
