"All things considered, the Gateway M-7818u is an attractive, budget-price mainstream unit that won't disappoint, as long as your expectations are realistic given the price. The bigger question is whether it's worth going out of your way for. The Office Max–exclusive M-7818u is very similar to Gateway's more widely available M-6340u. The M-7818u has a smaller hard drive (250GB vs. 320GB) but better integrated graphics (Intel 4500MHD vs. Intel X3100) than the M-6340u, and it costs $20 less. If some 3D gaming is on your agenda, opt for the better graphics; if you do only 2D productivity work, the larger hard drive on the M-6340u is the way to go."
