Gateway One vs the Apple iMac

It looks like Gateway is sending a shot across the bow of Apple’s iMac, releasing their own version of a full all-in-one desktop called Gateway One. The price ranges from $1,300-$1,800, so it falls in the middle of the iMac‘s price range. The only problem seems to be that the screen is only 19 inches, compared to the iMac, which ranges from 20-24 inches. The big advantage to the Gateway One is that you can swap out the hard drives when they start to fill up (even though they come with 320-500 gb drives).

I still think the iMac is a better deal for home users, since they still don’t have to think about viruses and malware at this point, but it’s good to see Gateway competing.

Thanks need to go to Engadget for the article(s) with all the deets and areacode212 over at flickr for the original pic (which I edited a bit since I didn’t know any of the people in the original pic)

  1. It’s good to see established hardware companies like Gateway making sure they aren’t stagnating. Lately it seems all the innovation in computing seems to be mobile-based as well. Glad that someone out there besides Apple remembers that not everyone wants a choice between a $700 grey box and a $3000 desktop with red and blue LEDs in the case!
