Gateway's all-in-one PC

Last hurrah before Acer formally takes over.


Gateway may be a shadow of its one-time self but apparently wants to prove that it still has some life as an independent company before formally being subsumed by Acer. Its "One" desktop--so-named because of its all-in-one form--follows the likes of Apple, Sony, HP and other manufacturers, including some overseas.

But Gateway's version isn't just a cheap copycat, sporting an attractive design of its own as well as specs that include a 2GHz Core 2 Duo chip, a 500GB hard drive, 3GB of memory, DVD burner and a 5-in-1 card reader for $1,800, according to Engadget. Lower-end models will be available for $1,500 and $1,300.

The One is scheduled for a formal unveiling tomorrow at the Digital Life show in New York, but word got out early. (No one can keep a secret anymore.) We'll follow up tomorrow with more details after the official announcement.

For basic lighting needs, this bulb looks like a solid pick, but its dimming performance leaves a lot to be desired.
