Gateway takes its try at purty machines with the ONE.

I entered the world of technological goodness yesterday afternoon as I walked into the Javits Center in Manhattan for Digital Life 2007. This show is MASSIVE! I only had a little while to do a quick run through with the rest of the press and media guys.

I noticed that their is a HUGE presence by all the consumer PC brands like Dell, HP and Gateway and they all look like they are trying to be the next big thing... Again. Gateway might have itself a hit with its new "One" desktop machine that resembles an iMac. This machine is really attractive and could find its way into the most luxurious households and not be out of place. Remarkably HP pulled the power supply out of this machine and went the way of the gaming systems and created a power brick.

HP is just the next in line of toting these all in one designs, as IBM and Gateway have already touched on this market. The main difference is LOOKS! Apple might not be the only one with good looking machines anymore - Will the other big names follow??

So I know, I know enough with the looks of the damn machine - how does it stack up in performance?

I am so glad you asked... Here are the specs for the most expensive $1800 model.

  • 2GHz Core 2 Duo processor
  • 3GB of RAM,
  • 500GB HDD
  • Mobility Radeon HD 2600 dedicated graphics.
  • Slot-loading DVD burner
  • Wall Mountable
  • Internal (hidden) web-cam.
  • Hard drive and memory has easy access for upgrades or swap outs.
  • 5-in-1 card reader

Stay tuned for more Digital Life coverage... And let us know what you want to see or hear about in the comments.

We will also try to keep uploading pictures to Flickr from the show here.
