In the wake of last month's aluminum iMac launch, Gateway has cooked up a new all-in-one PC aimed at stealing the Apple system's thunder. As MacNN reports, the Gateway system is called the Gateway One, and like the iMac, it sports an integrated wide-screen display (albeit only a 19" model, compared to the iMac's 20" and 24" displays.) The Gateway One is also just 3.6" deep, and it has a sleek black front bezel that conceals the monitor's edges and reaches all the way down onto the user's desk.
MacNN says the base Gateway One will become available in late October in two retail models and one variant that'll only be available online. The first retail model will have a 1.5GHz Core 2 Duo processor, integrated Intel X3100 graphics, 2GB of RAM, a 320GB hard drive, and a $1,300 price tag. The second retail model will cost $1,800 and pack a speedier 2GHz Core 2 Duo, Mobility Radeon HD 2600 graphics, 3GB of RAM, and 500GB of storage capacity. Last, but not least, the online-only model will cost $1,500 and have the same specs as the $1,300 model save for Radeon HD 2600 graphics and a 400GB hard drive.
All three systems will have built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a slot-loading DVD burner, FireWire, and a 5-in-1 flash card reader.
