Gateway Gateway One GZ7220

 

The One has arrived. No, I'm not talking about Keanu Reeves and the Matrix, but Gateway's new One GZ7220, whose display and PC components are integrated into a single, slim unit. Think of an iMac in glossy black with a slightly smaller, 19-inch,...

Integrated design ; Nice styling

Limited Expansion ; So-so performance

The impressive design on this PC rivals that of the iMac.

Gateway One

 

Coincident to the massive worldwide success of the Apple iMac (and following the unappealing, Soviet-looking Gateway ‘Profile') Gateway recently ventured into another attempt at the all-in-one computer system. The result of Gateway's re-invested...

Innovative and attractive design; fast hardware; easy to setup; affordable

Fans can be noisy; only one screensize available (for now); black levels could be better

The Gateway One is a super sleek all-in-one computer that will appeal to a wide audience.

Gateway One (GZ7220)

 

The stylish all-in-one Gateway One is not quite the iMac killer, but it is a decent all-in-one PC.

Compact all-in-form factor. Attractive styling. Quiet. Clutter-free. Two tool-less drive bays. Upgradeable. User serviceable. Integrated IR receiver. Wireless networking. Wireless keyboard and mouse.

Screen is lower resolution and smaller size than competition (less than full 1080p resolution for HD viewing). Bloatware. External TV tuner. No pointing device on keyboard. Proprietary cable to power brick. Internal graphics have only one upgrade path....

The Gateway One revives high-concept design in the land of the cow-printed boxes. Its design comes across as one of the closest to the Apple iMac, and unfortunately shares some of that model's shortcomings as well as its strengths.

Gateway One

 

The Gateway One ($1,799.99 direct) evokes the design of the circa-1997 Twentieth Anniversary Macintosh (TAM), the all-in-one PC considered to be the granddaddy of today's iMac. The One looks more like the TAM than today's iMac, thanks to the fact that...

Review: Gateway One

 

Ever get the feeling that technology is out to get you? No, not all things digital, that would be crazy. What I'm talking about is the Gateway all-in-one computer, accordingly named One – and it's out to get me. I'm not sure if it's all One systems, or...

Gateway One GZ7220 value PC

 

Think of an iMac in glossy black with a slightly smaller, 19-inch, 1440-by-900 screen, and you're on the right track.

Like the iMac, the One is priced between a value PC, which it significantly outperforms, and a power PC, which it certainly doesn't. But you're paying for style, and the One has a lot of it.

I have the “One” computer. After a year of use it started with a message about not having enough space and after that I could no longer connect to the internet. After calls to Gateway and a computer service that sent a tech to our house they still...

THIS PRODUCT IS AWFUL!!!! DO NOT BUY!!!!!!!!

 

I bought this POS a year ago. Was working fine one day and then the next nothing. I think what happened was the monitor died. THe problem with these all in ones is if one thing goes, you can pretty much put it in the lost column. I tried to ... Expand...

NONE. This product is awful. I had to give it a rating of at least 1.5 stars. Really I would rate it a .5

MONITOR DIED. GATEWWAY is known for this. See number of class action lawsuits on their products (mostly monitors)

Gateway Gateway One GZ7220

 

this Gateway One is a big step for design, I guess, for design. I saw old Gateways, and they only have power, not style.

Very good for Gateway to finally design something good

may not be very powerful
