Default Used Gateway for a Friend

Hey every one my friend was looking at a used laptop for sale it is a gateway MT6459 notebook. My better judgment tells me that she should decline b/c I have never heard anything good about gateways not to mention the fact that this one is already a year old. The laptop is $500 and the retail is over $700. For $100 she could get a decent new toshiba laptop, and amd's dual cores don't compare to that of intels. So tell me am I correct or flawed in my judgement based on these specifications?

its essentially the same laptop that i have, i have the MT6729 and i havent had a problem with it, had it for about a month and a half and its gotta be the best pc i have ever had. if that laptop that she might get is in decent condition, then i would probably say yeah, get it.

come to think of it, ive never had a problem with any gateway that I have ever had. you just have to take care of them, dont throw them around, keep them clean, etc...
