Check around a bit more. Think about building yourself if you into that. It may be a ok deal but I'd do a little more research. Go to pricewatch.com you can usually find good deals there.

You get what you pay for. There's a reason the remanufactured systems only have a 90-day warranty. If you call Gateway, you may be able to pay for a warranty upgrade, which might not be a bad idea.

My brother-in-law convinced my parents to buy a system from tiger. It is the biggest POS that I have ever laid my eyes on. I would never recommend or advise to buy a system from them.
