Clever design makes front-panel media card ports easily accessible; large hard drive; reasonably capable digital media PC.
Slow performance next to competing PC at the same price; poor power efficiency.
Gateway's DX4300-03 is a game attempt at a digital media hub-style PC, but the value proposition just isn't here. Slow performance in particular drags this desktop down, and unless you particularly value a TV tuner, you'll find faster, more capable computers not much farther down the retail shelf.
