Gateway debuts new ZX-series all-in-one computers

Hot on the heels of its parent company Acer introducing new all-in-one computers, subsidiary Gateway is gearing up for the holiday season with two new ZX-series all-in-one PCS, featuring 21.5- and 23-inch displays, Intel Pentium or Core i3 processors, and integrated Blu-ray drives. Rounding things out, the new ZX series feature an all-new industrial design with a curved bottom edge and chromed support stand in back, breaking the PCs out of the traditional canted-slab look of all-in-one PCs.

“The demand for all-in-one desktop PCs took off last year with the introduction of Windows 7 and its touch screen capabilities, and as the technology became more powerful and less expensive,” said Acer America senior business manager for consumer desktops Steve Smith, in a statement. “The newest additions to our ZX One Series of PCs expand the choices available, making these highly stylized PCs more accessible to a wider range of customers.”

The ZX4951 features a 21.5-inch touchscreen display, while the ZX6951 kicks out to a 23-inch touchscreen display, and are available with Intel Pentium or Core i3 processors, 500 to 640 GB hard drives, and 4 GB of RAM (expandable to 16 via 4 RAM slots). The systems also support 5.1 surround sound audio and offer 802.11 Wi-Fi and an integrated webcam for video chat. The 23-inch ZX6951 also includes a TV tuner—making it more practice as a TV replacement in a dorm room or spare bedroom—and both models include Gateway Touch Gadgets, enabling users to tap into the touchscreen interface to manage playlists, photos, video, and more.

Both units are VESA-mountable, and also feature lighting along the bottom edge that can be set to four brightness levels—on a table or desk, the lighting makes the included wireless keyboard more visible. The industrial design of the new ZX-series models will become standard across Gateway’s mainstream all-in-one offerings, while the top of the line models will retain their current design…although don’t be surprised if they get a spec bump before the holidays are over.

The ZX4951 and ZX6951 are available now from retailers with suggested prices starting at $899.99 and $999.99, respectively, depending on configuration.
