What People Are Saying
Lightning fried my previous Gateway FX6831-03 last week, despite surge protectors and a battery power supply. AAAARRRGGGH! I replaced it with the FX6860-UR20P since they are so similar.
I’m a photojournalist and quite like Gateway’s built-in multi-card reader with red glowing “racing stripes.” This new machine also gives you the option of connecting to the internet via a WiFi card or standard Ethernet connection. I’m using WiFi from now on; I’m pretty sure the electrical surge that killed my old computer came in through the Ethernet connection.
The FX6860-UR20P contains a USB 3.0 card with two ports. This machine also sports TEN regular USB 2.0 ports on the back, front and top! You can nestle your MP3 player on the indented platform on top, right next to two USB 2.0 ports and a covered storage compartment.
This is an amazingly fast and powerful computer. It processes high definition video or rips through RAW files in Photoshop like they were JPEGs. It easily handles the latest high-end games. The Intel Core i7-2600 Processor and the ATI Radeon HD 6750 Graphics Card are both well regarded. Not bleeding edge, but far more power then almost anyone needs.
Drive Bays: I filled the two bay trays with a 1 TB Hatachi hard drive and the 1.5 TB drive rescued from my old Gateway machine. They both work great and gave me tons of additional storage ( Craig Hartley)
