New Gateway All-In-Ones Offer Touch Screens, AMD or Intel CPUs

Computer maker (and Acer subsidiary) Gateway has taken the wraps off two new all-in-one computers in its Gateway One ZX Series aimed at home users, students, and family users: the budget-friendly AMD-powered ZX4300 and the bigger-and-faster ZX6900. The systems are designed to function as home entertainments centers, ideal work and media PCS for students in dorm rooms or just shunted off to the back of the house, or a convenient PC for kitchens or other family areas.

“Because all-in-ones integrate a desktop tower into the back of a flat-panel display, they typically use smaller, less powerful notebook components that don’t require a lot of space,” said Acer America’s senior manager for desktop computers Steve Smith, in a statement. “However, Gateway was able to leverage the latest desktop components to give consumers the best of both worlds—powerful performance and lower cost, all in a stylish, space-saving design.”

The ZX4300-1e features an 20-inch widescreen 1,600 by 900-pixel touchscreen display (250 cd/m² brightness, 1,000:1 contrast ratio, 5ms response time) and a 2.7 GHz AMD Athlon II Xr processor and ATI Radeon 4270 graphics. The system sports 4 GB of RAM, a 640 GB hard drive, an 8&tiems DVD±RW slot-loading optical drive, a multi-in-one digital media card reader, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, gigabit Ethernet, and six USB ports (two in the side, four in back). The unit ships with Windows Home Premium 64-bit and has a base price of $749.99; it should be available in the first week of June. Gateway is promising additional models should land in July with TV Tuners and faster AMD processors.

Stepping up a little bit, the ZX6900 will offer either a 2.93 GHz Intel Core i3 processor or a faster Core i5 650 processor, along with a 23-inch 1,920 by 1,080-pixel touchscreen display driven by Intel GMA HD graphics. Like the ZX4300, the system will offer 4 GB of RAM and a 640 GB hard drive, along with gigabit Ethernet and 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi; however, the optical drive steps up to a slot-loading 4× Blu-ray player and combo DVD burner, and in addition to the six USB ports the ZX6900 picks up an eSATA port and an HDMI output. The Core i3-based version of the ZX6900 is available now at prices starting at $1019.99; the version with the Core i5 CPU should be available in early June, and will also roll in a TV tuner.
