Gateway DS50 review

 

The Gateway DS50 desktop PC will serve you well when it comes to office tasks. Our configuration is unlikely to set your pulse racing, but it's quick and has a decent specification for the price.

Solid performance ; Compact chassis

Unspectacular design ; Can be tricky to upgrade some components

Gateway - DS50

 

Gateway doesn't seem quite sure where its DS50 small form factor desktop is aimed. It lists it as a business desktop, but the press release talks of its multimedia capabilities. The price of the machine leans ...

To some extent the DS50 is a PC in search of a niche. It has the performance to handle graphics apps, though it's not strong enough graphically for heavyweight gaming. It's certainly capable of video playback, but isn't really equipped as a home cinema...
