If those were the choices I'd get the Gateway. Avertec is the Sotec gang so you'll likely have the same issues.
i would like to play games (nothing spectacular) and the averatec has the better graphics card (i think, i might be wrong) and the averatec is more slim and sexy. but the gateway is an overall better computer. if i got the gateway where would i get a graphics card for it? you can see them both and www.bestbuy.com under the notebook sale. thanks
