Review of the Gateway FX 6860 Desktop PC: by Kurt von Behrmann

The New Gateway FX 6860 Desktop PC

As much as we all like portable computing, nothing replaces the power storage and software you can use on a PC. As powerful as smart phones and tablets are, when the "heavy lifting" of computing is involved, the Desktop is the deal.

Back in the day, the newest would run two grand just to keep up with what was current. That did not give you the top tier of hardware and software.

For those that want power, but do not want to "break the bank,"  Gateway has a really solid value packed system that does not skimp on the basics.

Running Ivy Bridge, Intel's latest process--new construction process and all-- along with a 1 TB hard drive, a new AMD Graphics Card Radeon HD 2 Gig 7700 card and 8 gigs of DDR3 Ram, this is a solid deal.

Featuring tooless hard drive expansion,  you do not need to crack the case to add hard drives, this racks up to a decent respectable system for graphic designers, students, business pros and artists looking for the best "bang for the buck" system, this is a hard system to pass up on any day

Working with it, and start up times are about 30 to 50 seconds running anti virus and firewall.
Programs run very fast and video rendering is great.

Inkling from Wacom

A video that explores Inkling. A way to draw and then edit into a program like Illustrator, Photoshop or Corel Draw.
This is a tool that allows you to draw on any paper, special paper not required, stores the drawings for later downloading.

Another feature is that you can use it to draw on paper and have the image you draw appear in programs like the aforementioned.

More vids coming up, including my "pic" for the best value desktop pc.
