Calling it the "iMac effect" just feels wrong, but there's no question that Gateway got their inspiration for this one from…well, somewhere. Regardless, the company's two newest all-in-one PC families are both sleek and beautiful, with one of them even being potent enough to be called powerful. These are being introduced at a time when some people are already thinking about back-to-school computers, and with options for Core i3/i5 CPUs as well as a Blu-ray drive, they could also double as a bedroom home entertainment center.

The panel on this one is a 20" one with a 1600x900 native resolution, 1000:1 contrast ratio, 5ms response time and 250 cd/m2 brightness.

The ZX6900 line is started by a 23" unit with a 1080p panel, the same OS, a Core i3-530 processor (2.93GHz), Intel's GMA integrated graphics, a 640GB HDD, 4GB of DDR3 RAM, an HDMI output, eSATA port and a Blu-ray playing DVD burner, along with similar specs borrowed from the other machine.

This can really be a bedroom computer, more like wall integrated, without the legs, of course. Its only time before we start to grow out of the 20 inchers into more like a 32 or 40" touchpanel!
