Other posts, here and in MSE, have pointed out that the spec on the Tesco site is wrong. Amongst other things, the machin e only has 1GB RAM and 120GB hard disk.

Yep thats right... i had to phone Gateway to get the correct specs.

Oops Tesco will be getting this back then that is false advertising.:x

Why not ask them for a rather large refund to take into account the reduced spec? Worth a try?

Is this Gateway the same company that had a 'UK' base in Ireland and used to only sell by online/phone, whose pcs came boxed in black and white cowprint boxes?!

Got my first decent pc from them, what happened to 'em?

Not sure about the rest but I know the above bit is true. I remember seeing their adverts back in the late 90's :thumbsup:

I could try that I suppose but I am sure they will just say return it. I am really annoyed cos they have changed the spec on the website today, I wish I had waited abit, I spent ages organising someone to wait in for delivery tomorrow. (Good ole Dad)

I think it is the same company that was one of the reasons I ordered it because we had a gateway computer before and it was really good.

out of stock and the spec has been updated

I just bought one of these laptops from tesco. Did gateway sell it with 2GB?

In the first post at the top of this thread is says that they sold it with 160Gb hard drive and 2Gb of RAM. Now they are selling it with 120Gb HDD and 1Gb RAM :-(

Hi I received the laptop at the end of last week. It was 1GB RAM 120GB HDD so I emailed customer services and complained. They offered me 15% (£60) off so as I had already received £10 off it came to £330 which I think was a good deal as the laptop is great. It looks really smart with brush steel finish around the keyboard my daughter is thrilled with it and has managed to do everything that she wanted to with it. The money has already been credited to my account and it looks like I get to keep the triple clubcard points (1200 worth £48 in deals) they are still showing in my account. I am not sure what will happen to my quidco cashback though but mustn't be too greedy

This seems like a pretty reasonable compromise. £330 is not bad for the actual spec you received.

Thats what I thought especially as someone on MSE forum had only been offered £25 refund for same complaint!!

Nice to hear... having phoned Gateway i was dubious with Tesco's specs and thats why i contacted them and got them to change the site. Looks like with all the refunds they would have switched on anyway... but its great to hear you got that much discount ! Nice one and glad youre happy :-)
