Gateway joins Apple and Sony in the latest round of all-in-one PC designs

Although Gateway has been in the news recently regarding the Acer takeover, the company is today hoping to get some exposure from an all new desktop product.

Apple recently released its totally revamped all-in-one iMac and Sony countered with its own pricier VAIO LT series. Gateway is now entering the mix with its new Gateway One.

The Gateway One is built around a 19" (1440x900) LCD which features a prominent "chin" at the base of the display. Surrounding the display are a plethora of inputs/outputs including three USB 2.0 ports, one Firewire port and dual memory card slots. Inside, users will find two HDD based for expansion.

Gateway even includes an innovative power adapter which manages to incorporate four additional USB 2.0 ports, SPDIF, optical and network connections -- this leaves unsightly wires and cables under the desk instead of on it collecting dust.

"Gateway One exemplifies the idea of simplicity, of less is more," said Gateway Senior VP Gary Elsasser. "This computer complements its environment and becomes a design element you want to show off as much as you want to use. Because it doesn't compromise on features or performance, it will be appreciated for its brains as well as its beauty."

The base $1,299 system will get you a Core 2 Duo T5250 processor, 320GB HDD, Intel X3100 integrated GPU, 1.3MP webcam and a slot-load dual-layer DVD burner. $1,499 adds a 400GB HDD and an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2600 XT GPU. Stepping up to the $1,799 model will get you a Core 2 Duo 7250 processor, 500GB HDD and an analog/digital TV tuner.

The $1,299 model and $1,799 model will be made available exclusively at Best Buy. The $1,499 model will only be available direct from Gateway.
