    Gateway One Desktop PC Rivals the iMac


    (Page 1 of 4 )

    It seems that the battle of computer supremacy between PCs and Macs is never-ending. Apple controlled the computer market with the introduction of their computers in the mid-1980s. PCs then took over in the mid-1990s and have controlled the computer market up until recently, when the newly designed Macs began to become popular again. Gateway has taken a page from Mac's design, while adding some of their own features to the new Gateway One. Read on to find out more.

    The shift in popularity, from PC back to Mac, has a lot to do with the design and functionality of the new Macs. The new iMacs are one of the easiest computers to use, as well as one of the most attractive to look at. This combination has made them very popular. Their ease of use, good looks, and good performance has made the iMac the computer of choice for 2007.

    Gateway recently introduced the newest "iMac-like" PC with the release of their Gateway One desktop PC. It's obvious that Gateway has taken a page from the iMac's book with its all-in-one design, which leaves the computer tower as a thing of the past. I think that this is the greatest computer innovation in the past 10 years. The idea of having all of the hardware built into the monitor is not new, but it's still relatively uncommon in today's computers. This type of design is sure to be the future of desktop computers, because it saves space and looks much cleaner than having a bulky tower sitting on the floor.

    Not only does the Gateway One eliminate the traditional computer tower, but it also eliminates most of the cables used in traditional computers. As a matter of fact, this PC only requires 1 cable! This is probably one of the best features of this computer. The Gateway One will surely make your desktop look much tidier, and it will eliminate the "jungle" of cables hiding behind your computer.

    The Gateway One beats out the iMac on some points, while it falls short in others. I will try to compare the two computers throughout this review when possible, so that you can get a clearer picture of the good points and bad points of this new PC. There aren't many all-in-one computers on the market right now. The Gateway One's main competition is the iMac and the Sony VAIO LT19U. The Sony costs about $1000 more than the One, which has a starting price of $1300. The iMac is much more comparable in price with the One. There are three Gateway One models to choose from, which range in price from $1300-$1800.
