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

Avoid both?

If those were the choices I'd get the Gateway. Avertec is the Sotec gang so you'll likely have the same issues.

Have you seen a v2410?

My neighbors picked up the v2410 or such for 750US. It has the usual Turion, 512MB RAM, 60 or 80 GB hard disk, dual layer DVD recorder, wifi, memory card readers, firewire, USB 2.0 etc and would be something I would consider if I was in the market.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
