IT'* HERE!!!!!!!!!!!

Came at around 3:30 in 3 boxes. Unboxing everything, First the tower which looks really nice. I love the extra USB ports in the front. With the card reader I don't need to install the software from my camcorder. Just pop the SD card out and slip it in. Enough babbling, Onto the Monitor!

This thing is HUGE compared to all the monitors I've computed on. Plus that theres so much more room on this thing its crazy for me!

With all the inputs this monitor might replace my TV.

Uploading droolworthy pics shortly.

Here they are, Sorry if the quality is a little meh, I don't have a tripod :(

HDMI cable
Mouse Pad

And I'm all set!

It did come with a couple tiny issues though. First the speakers came damaged during the shipping process. (one speaker has a few cracks, like if u took a hammer to it) A quick call to Gateway and a replacement is on its way.

The other issue was the Media Remote quit working for a while. For some reason after uninstalling the TV Tuner driver it worked again. and the TV Tuner is working the same as before. Weird.

Otherwise the best $1,091 I've ever spent on a tech device.

Now since I've been on the big and awesome monitor its hard to go back to anything else smaller or CRT.

Happy Gilmore FTW!
