    I'll tell you right now, I saw Michael MJD review a "New" Gateway laptop from Walmart, and things couldn't be any more shady in terms of the branding scenario. But don't take my word for it. (Link Below)

    Evoo must use very cheap batteries cause my 2 in one tablet with detachable keyboard actually stopped even wanting to charge!!!! Like what the actual fuck???? Or better yet i bet they don't even make them themselves they probably just slap the "Evoo" name on a cheap Chinese manufactured one and call it a day

  • Kilegram

    These laptops are sold by some Chinese company who has just licensed the Gateway branding and is now slapping gateway logos on these crappy PCs

    Two things: 1) I would never recommend a Windows with less than 8GB RAM. I am not even sure why you're taking time on a 4GB machine, much less a 2GB machine. 2) How does it do if you install ChromOS?

  • Gregory Smith

    Is this the same hardware as the latest "Gateway" computer?

    For anyone who wants to buy one of these: They're now selling them cheaper under a licesnce as Gateway machines.

    This video may be old but I found a device that can smash this out of the water. I picked up a Coda Sprint for £100 GBP brand new. It features: USB-C for charging or use the included external adapter. I tested on a Dell usb c dock for a full home office use. 1080P IPS display 1.1GHz but constantly boosts for 2.4 no thermal throttle Micro HDMI M.2 Slot ! Bluetooth and WiFI Full metal chassis Battery is phenomenal Really worth a test for the price.

    Hey Linus, you probably won't understand a thing on my video, but here in Brazil we have a cheap manufacturer called Multilaser. And it sells basically the same Intel laptop over here. 4gb ram, celeron cpu, full HD ipd display, but here is the catch it comes with a m.2 sata slot. Here is how it is on the inside. It costs approximately 200-250 USD It's called Multilaser Legacy air.

    The best glitch yet: right click on the desktop and hover over NEW, as in where you can open a new document or whatever. The menu takes at least 6 seconds to load. Mind-blowing.

    Power button on the side is pretty bad. Because if you put it in your backpack you maybe take in out with less battery than you put it in because it's presses the power button if you put it with power button down in your backpack.

  • Venecraft

    I have the blue one but... Its an acer

  • Rokaz

    these computers were shit back in 2013. and im stunned how they can still sell these. made my days in customer services a nightmare. because people are never happy with these. just go and buy any used old crap 2nd gen i5 and you will have a better experience

    That subtle emphasis on the S in performance. gg


    Honestly if your budget is under 250$ you shouldn't even look at new laptops, just get a used 4th gen (or newer) i5 laptop like a professional grade dell latitude or lenovo thinkpad for less than 200.

    You should check out Acer chromebook 11(c732 or newer ones).I mean its a chromebook but its priced at $150-250 range and has dual usb 3.0, dual usb 3.1 type-c, real 1280x720 hd wide angle webcam, a very good range 802.11ac wifi(2.4&5 ghz), nice no flex responsive touchpad, spill protection for keyboard, plastic but sturdy chasis(no keyboard flex, no chasis flex), and 10-12 hours of battery life(i really have tested it).Only downside is you can't really install windows in it(it can be done but it's really hard to and will have some driver issues like touchpad and keyboard doesnt work), but chrome os has really gone a long way it works way faster compared to windows versions of same spec device and you can install any android app in it for casual computing needs and you can virtually install any linux app(like vlc player, qbittorent, audacity, peazip etc.) and even some windows apps like office 2010 using crossover for android or wine for linux(windows apps might work slow and buggy unfortunately).

      Acer and Asus also make laptops in this same form factor and price point as the Walmart ones if you have to have Windows, but with much better reliability and construction. Or at least they did up until last year, I got an Asus one two years ago and haven't seen them on the shelves as of late.
