    The thread is now "CLOSED", but I thought I'd give an update anyway.
    From 04-2008:

    Maximise OS Performance on New Laptop
    New Laptop: Gateway MT6705 Cost:$595.00
    OS: Vista Home Premium
    1.60 GHz, Dual Core Processor
    2 gig RAM (Already upgraded to that before anything)


    I returned the GWLT to the dealer and paid to have it wiped clean and loaded with XP Pro, which voided the warranty. Visa was removed. So was a lot of unnecessary stuff.

    The result is a very good running laptop with no bloat ware and extra junk. The dealer set it up for maximum performance.

    I've used this GWLT for over a year with zero problems, as my main computer, connected to a 22" LCD and two printers.

    I had no problems requiring a warranty. I plan on using this laptop a couple more years, at least.

    (This post is just an update on a closed thread.)
