Gateway SX2380-UR308 Desktop Review
Gateway has come up with the new Gateway SX2380-UR308 which is very compact and is very small when compared to the regular standard desktop. This new desktop is not only small but also some impressive features inside it and also comes with an inexpensive price tag.
The desktop is run by an AMD A series A4 – 5300 processor that clocks around 3.4 GHz. This is a very good processing speed and will run the Windows 8 operating system without any problem. The processor has been assisted by a 4 GB DDR3 RAM which is a very good number. This RAM can run many high end applications smoothly.
The AMD Radeon HD7480D Graphics card offers very good support and most of the games can be run without any issues. The RAM and the graphics card form a good combo to give the user an excellent gaming experience.
The hard drive is more than enough having a space of 1 TB. There aren’t many monitors that come up with this much space. This also assures you that you need not erase any of your valuable data for the sake of storage space.
The Windows 8 operating system comes pre-installed with the Gateway SX2380-UR308. This operating system has been getting mixed reviews but we feel positive about it. We allow recommend you to get a touch screen monitor to enjoy the operating system to the maximum.
There is a 16X super multi optical drive with which you can copy up to 8.5 GB of data into a double layer disk. There is also a card reader which will be of very good use to photographers who might need to access their work very often. The audio is also high definition and has above par quality.
There are loads of connectivity options in this Gateway desktop. There are 6 USB 2.0 ports and 4 USB 3.0 ports. These USB 3.0 ports can transfer data nearly ten times faster than the USB 2.0 ports and this could save a lot of time. There is also a HDMI port which enables high end connectivity like gaming consoles and blu ray players.
The keyboard and mouse are pretty standard and doesn’t seem to have any problems. We also couldn’t think of any negative to point out as there isn’t any.
The Gateway SX2380-UR308 is an economic desktop that offers you all the basic features with a mid range specification. This is perfect for doing your day to day activities and sometimes can act as your personal workstation. TechWeirdo recommends this desktop because of its offerings as an economy model.
