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.

The Gateway One actually has a smaller footprint than the iMac, by about three inches. Thanks to a clever support foot on the back panel it can stand upright at nearly 90 degrees.

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.

Slide two latches on the bottom of the Gateway One and you can get inside. Here you can access the hard drive bays, the memory, and PCI Express MiniCard slots.

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.
