This new line offers multi-touch screen technology and ranges from entry-level to high-performance systems. At the high-performance end, you'll find the Gateway One ZX6810-01 with a 23-inch 1080p widescreen display priced at $1,399.99.

For users on a smaller budget, the ZX4800 Series provides a lower price tag than the aforementioned One ZX6800... Read more...
We've known since late March that Verizon Wireless was thinking hard about offering subsidized netbooks that ran on its data network, and while it has been offering a single model for a few months now, this is probably the most attractive one yet to find its way into a carrier store.Gateway's LT2016u is the first Gateway of any kind to snake into a VZW store, and the built-in Verizon WWAN module probably has something to do with that. Starting this Sunday (10/04), EV-DO lovers looking for a new machine to bring along on the road can skate on into a VZW store to pick one up, but don't expect any discounts without a hefty 2-year contract. As with most netbooks, this one also sports a 1.6GHz Intel... Read more...
Gateway introduced the Gateway LT2000, a new netbook with a 10.1-inch TFT display. Intel Atom processors power the LT2000. Utilizing the same design as the Gateway LT3100 netbooks launched last month, the LT2000 is available in NightSky Black and Cherry Red with silver accents. In terms of ports, the LT2000 offers three USB 2.0, Ethernet, and VGA ports as well as a multi-in-one digital card reader.One unique feature of the LT2000 is the Multi-Gesture Touchpad that lets users navigate websites, documents, and digital media using different gestures such as swirling their fingers or pinching. The LT2000 is available in several configurations with a starting MSRP of $299.99. Gateway Expands LT Netbook... Read more...
Seriously Gateway, don't spill all of your surprises at once! For the third time in the past 24 hours, Gateway is introducing a new machine. This time, it's the company's first-ever 11.6" netbook, the LT3100. As netbooks continue to inch closer and closer to ultraportables, this 11.6" version weighs in at 3.14lbs. and arrives with an AMD Athlon CPU, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, a full-size keyboard and an Ultrabright high-def (1366x768) widescreen display.Specifically, you'll find an Athlon 64 L110 CPU, ATI's Radeon X1270 graphics, 2GB of DDR2 memory and up to 250GB of hard drive space. The six cell battery also promises up to five hours of life, but as we've learned, we'd expect real world performance to... Read more...
Gateway's on a roll, and we're in no position to stop them. Shortly after introducing a new pair of back-to-school desktops, the company has unveiled a new NV Series notebook. Said machine is described as "a workhorse entertainment notebook that pairs the latest notebook technologies and important one-touch buttons with excellent style at an affordable price," and with a starting tag of just $499.99, we'd say that's pretty accurate.Starting with a 15.6" LED display, a 1366x768 resolution and Dolby Sound Room technology, this machine features an HDMI output, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a one-touch MyBackup button and a nifty 'PowerSave' button that gives users the ability to switch to a lower-power, energy...

A few months have gone by since we've seen any new machines from Gateway, but the company is following the crowd this month by introducing back-to-school PCs long before most kids are even thinking about the next term. The two new lines introduced today are the small form factor SX Series and the compact DX Series mini-tower line, both of which are designed with value in mind and are accompanied by a Gateway FHD monitor.Obviously, both of these were designed with space constraints in mind, and while they certainly aren't cut out for gaming, they should fit in cramped dorm rooms just fine while handling a bevy of Word and Excel documents (and the occasional round of Hearts, too). The SX Series... Read more...

There was a time when many people would have bet on Gateway to become the largest direct retailer of computers in America, instead of Dell. They even opened up a few boutique retail outlets along the way.  They had a funky vibe going with their black and white cow-spotted boxes, and the future seemed very bright indeed.  That future never materialized, and Gateway was acquired by Acer last year for a comparatively modest $710 million. Now Gateway has completely ended the business model that put them on the map: Direct Sales. “We believe that our retail and e-tail partners offer consumers the best, easiest and most effective way to purchase Gateway products,” said...

While there are quite a few manufacturers building GeForce 8800M equipped notebooks, almost all of them are high-end products that demand top dollar for the pleasure. Gateway's "P-Series FX" line-up of 17" gaming notebooks seems no different at first glance.  However, careful inspection of their product specifications reveals that the most junior P-Series FX model weighs in at just $1,349.99, a decidedly mid-range price point for this type of machine. Yet it's still powered by a GeForce 8800M, just like the rest of the otherwise high-end FX notebook line-up. This GPU choice alone potentially makes the junior P-Series FX model one of the best gaming and multimedia machines in the entire mid-range... Read more...
In the last six months we've seen a wide variety of cost effective, yet powerful, video cards hit the market. First came NVIDIA's superb GeForce 8800 GT last October which, despite being introduced at an upper mid-range price point, provided top-notch performance not far off from the best cards of the day at nearly 1/3 the price. The 8800 GT was followed closely by the launch of the thrifty GeForce 9600 GT just a few months later which provided similar performance for even less. Then, last week, ATI fired back with the excellent Radeon HD 4850 and Radeon HD 4870 video cards which retail at the same affordable mid-range prices but provide strong...

Gateway's newest and most powerful gaming and media desktops were introduced yesterday. The GM 5664 and the GT5662 use AMD Phenom quad core processors, and have DirectX 10 supported ATI Radeon DH 2400XT graphics cards with 256 MB of on-board memory and HDMI output. And since we haven't made up our minds about HD DVD or Blu-ray yet, neither has Gateway -- the GM 5664 will play both formats. With the ability to watch live TV and breeze through the most intense media demands, the Gateway® GM Series of PCs are ideal entertainment supercenters. The ultimate PC for media-hungry users, they feature the high-performance horse power needed for playing the latest games and blazing through processor-intensive... Read more...
Today Gateway (soon to be a part of Acer) introduced a new all-in-one home desktop with a sleek minimalist design.  Remind you of any recently introduced models from a Cupertino firm?Called simply the One, the design is far sleeker than Gateway's earlier Profile systems and fits the entire design within a single metal shell just 3.6 inches deep. The entire front face is black to hide the borders of the 19-inch widescreen LCD and blend into home decor, such as the living room. The One also builds on Apple's minimalist emphasis: where the iMac plugs all cables directly into the back, the One feeds gigabit Ethernet, four USB ports, and AV ports to the external power adapter to take clutter away...

With Acer's recent announcement that it would acquire Gateway for $710 million, a price many considered to be well above the market value for Gateway, one would think that shareholders would be happy.  Oddly enough, that not only doesn't seem to be the case, but quite the opposite: Some shareholders are suing over the acquisition.The law suit revolves around certain information not being properly disclosed:"The Company’s directors breached their fiduciary duties to stockholders by approving the Merger Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby, including but not limited to the Offer, and claims that these transactions are both unfair and coercive to the public stockholders in a sale...

At one time Gateway was huge. It was big enough to compete with the likes of Dell, HP and Compaq.  Yesterday, Acer bought Gateway, for the bargain basement price of $710 million.  While $710 million  is nothing to sneeze at, compare it to the $7 billion (with a B) that Gateway was once offered to become part of Compaq.  What went wrong? A string of bad quarters, a revolving door into the chief executive's office and a schizophrenic business strategy have all led to Gateway's end as an independent company after 22 years in business. The economic downturn that began in 2000 hit Gateway particularly hard, and it never quite recovered. Its identity as a company was constantly in flux after that,... Read more...
Taiwan’s Acer has announced it will buy struggling computer vendor Gateway, in a deal worth $710 million. Acer will pay a 57% premium over the Friday closing price for Gateway stock, at $1.90 per share.  This will create the world’s #3 largest PC maker. Acer Inc. plans to acquire Gateway Inc. in a deal worth $710 million that Acer says will make it the world's third-largest PC vendor. "This is the biggest acquisition in Acer's 30 year history," said J.T. Wang, Acer's chairman, speaking at a news conference in Taipei. "After this acquisition, we are solidly number three in the global PC market," Wang said. At the same time, Gateway dealt a blow to Lenovo by announcing... Read more...
Computer maker Gateway has voluntarily recalled about 14,000 lithium-ion battery packs, sold as primary or spare power supplies for some of their laptop computers, because they pose an overheating and fire hazard.  The Irvine, Calif., computer maker said the affected battery packs were shipped as the primary or spare battery pack for Gateway 400VTX and 450ROG series notebooks. They were sold during a three-month period from May 2003 to August 2003 in the U.S. through Gateway's Web site and its Gateway Country stores. Gateway said it will replace affected battery packs at no cost to the customer. It did not identify the maker of the recalled battery packs. Last year, the... Read more...
How would you react if you bought a totally new PC, set it up, and right out of the box there seemed to be a problem?  And then after speaking to the manufacturer numerous times, you were told you could no longer get free technical support, the company wouldn't repair the PC, and that you couldn't sue because there was a clause in the original sales agreement that stated buyers must settle disputes through a private forum and not a public courtroom?  Well, that’s exactly what happened to a customer who bought a PC from Gateway... "Right out of the box, he says, the computer displayed scattered graphics and wouldn't work properly.  H e says he called a Gateway salesman five times and... Read more...
What's worse?  The fact that these guys were shamming investors or were so lacking in creativity that they named their plan "deep, deep, s..."? "According to the SEC complaint, Todd used "improper and extraordinary transactions" as part of a plan to "close the gap" between analysts' expectations and Gateway's revenues. Manza assisted in the scheme by preparing financial statements that he knew did not comply with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP)."... Read more...
If you're in the market for a Tablet PC, the folks over at [H]ard|OCP have taken a look at Gateway's CX200X Tablet PC. Though not the perfect Tablet PC, it's got a good enough mix of hardware and software to make your everyday life a little easier."In the context of why a system such as this would be purchased, we were very pleased. While it doesn't blow our socks off as a gaming solution, it's not supposed to be one. The utility of a Tablet PC is extremely attractive, and the convertable nature of the CX200X allows for more traditional usage."... Read more...
RaidMax X1 ATX Gaming Case @ Bigbruin.com: "Raidmax continues to impress by offering unique, high quality items at a reasonable price. The Raidmax X1 case is no different... The X1 isn't as flashy as some of the recent "gaming" cases, but does retain enough of the "gaming" case feel with the front LCD, hidden drive bays, and a beautiful side panel." MSI NX7800GTX SLI @ Viperlair: "While we have a lot of praise to bestow upon the MSI NX7800GTX-VT2D256E, there isn't much we can say that we haven't already done so for the 7800 GTX in general. It's fast, occupies one slot, and with it, you can really crank up the image quality settings without sacrificing performance.... Read more...

The Actiontec Wireless Ready Home Gateway SOHO Connectivity - Copper Need Not Apply By, Dave Altavilla November 5, 2001     SOHO (Small Office Home Office) products have certainly gotten sexier with the advent of Broadband ISP services brought to the home and small businesses.  No longer are we limited to the primitive functionality of a simple ethernet hub.  Now we have technologies like Routers, Gateways and Access Points, which were historically thought of as higher end "enterprise" solutions, making their way to suburbia and the average home user or small office.  This new area of opportunity for various OEMs, as we mentioned in our review of a similar...
