We'd still take an iMac if we had to choose an all-in-one, but the Gateway One might appeal if you're locked into Windows. You can check out <cnet:link int="http://reviews.cnet.com/desktops/gateway-one/4505-3118_7-32627127.html">our full review</cnet:link>, or browse through our slide show that covers some of the Gateway One's design highlights.
The Gateway One cuts a very similar profile to Apple's iMac. That's a 19-inch screen though, or an inch smaller than the iMac's 20-inch display.
This composite shows the left and right sides of the Gateway One. The ports are about standard, although that is a media card reader on top, which the iMac lacks. That's also a standard definition slot-loading DVD burner, and Gateway doesn't offer an HD option, at least right now.
This close-up of the power brick reveals one of the features we like most about the Gateway One. You can plug your USB keys and other portable devices into the system itself, but the power brick inputs let you keep messy wires for printers, network cables, and other longer-term connections under your desk and out of sight.
The ports on the power brick might preserve the Gateway One's clean image, but the (thankfully) removable USB Webcam on the top looks clunky. Gateway says it gives you more adjustability than a built-in cam. We say if you want a different angle, sit on a pillow.
