Gateway launches iMac-like PC

Taking cue from Apple's success with the iMac, Gateway today began a soft launch of its own all-in-one PC -- the Gateway Neo.

The $1399 system, which in the US has been given the name Astro, features similar stylings to the iMac, but comes in only one colour -- beige -- and includes an integrated 1.44MB 3.5in diskette drive.

Behind the Neo's 15in CRT screen is a 400MHz Celeron processor, the Intel 810 integrated graphics accelerator, 64MB SDRAM, a 4.3GB hard drive, 17x-40x CD-ROM and 56Kbps modem. Four USB ports are included, whilst the Neo does not offer any serial or parallel ports.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
