i read it goes up to 8gig, should be plenty for a value machine like this. It does run windows 8, wow microsoft brings out a new operating system that does absolutely nothing for non touch computers and they actually charge money for it, what a scandal.
i don't want to beg, but please give me some green.

This is a good deal if you are not needing a power laptop. I picked up a Gateway NE56R34u (same CPU, 500 gig HD) for $300 last week. It came with a single 4gig module (1 slot free), so for ~$20 you should be able to easily upgrade to 8gig. Anyway, if this a real offer and I get my hands on one of these, the NE56R34u will be going back.
Green for you! Thanks! BTW, you have a link that verifies the price?

Bought one today, have been looking for a cheap second laptop. Got them to price match some printer ink, loaded up $50.00 worth, and it all worked out well. No review on the laptop yet, but seems nice so far.

Wish I could find something similar w/ Windows 7! As a novice user, my research on W8 doesn't excite me.

This is the worst post I've ever seen. Info in the title, but nothing in the text. No link. No explanation of having to buy $50 worth of stuff. No info on the time period this deal lasts.... It's like everyone is just filling in the blanks on your post.

Well, quick update. One day after purchasing this laptop I am returning it. I don't know for sure if it is a hardware issue or not, but the computer restarts itself all the time. Also, it freezes often as well. I called gateway tech support, and the man was very helpful, but he basically blamed ALL of my issues on Windows 8. When I told him about the freezing, he said, "yes windows is working on an update" and when I mentioned the rolling restarts, he said "yes microsoft is working on a fix for this issue". I don't think I am ready for a Windows 8 laptop, so I am returning this one.
