Gateway serves up PIII 550MHz PCs

Intel's new 550MHz Pentium III processor has already made its way to market with a new desktop PC from Gateway.

The Gateway Performance 550, priced at $4399, incorporates a 550MHz Pentium III processor, 12.9GB Ultra ATA hard drive, 128MB SDRAM, 17in monitor, DVD IV ROM drive, 16MB graphics accelerator, 56K modem, Windows 98 and Corel WordPerfect Suite 8.0.

The new Pentium III processor is also available in Gateway's GP-Series of small business PCs.

The Gateway Performance 550 is part of the company's new Gateway Performance line, which together with the Gateway Essential line, replaces the G-Series of desktop PCs.

According to Gateway, the Performance line will deliver the latest technology and highest performance for enthusiasts and clients who want top-of-the-line performance. The line is fully customisable and features a wide range of component choices, the company says.

The second line, Gateway Essential, "is designed to meet the individual needs of the client looking for a full-featured multimedia system, [...] while maximising those features that are most important to the client's needs: processor speed, RAM amount and hard drive size," explains a statement from the company.

An example is the Gateway 466c, which features a 466MHz Celeron processor, 64MB SDRAM, 12.9GB Ultra ATA hard drive, DVD IV ROM drive and 8MB graphics accelerator.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

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

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