Pictured: Gateway reveals iMac killer

All-in-one PC takes on Apple and Sony

Watch out Apple. Prepare your CV, Jonathan Ive. Gateway has just announced a line of stylish all-in-one PCs called the Gateway One today that the PC maker is billing as its most elegantly designed PC yet. The systems are a successor to the PC maker's Profile series PCs, which are considerably boxier and bulkier.

Could this be an iMac-killer? Having seen the systems up close here at the Digital Life trade show in New York, I don't think so. But these systems do look darn good and should be a consideration for anyone shopping for a all-in-one PC. The all-in-one PC space is heating up. Apple just updated its all-in-one iMac, and Sony also has an all-in-one contender with its Vaio LT series.

Gateway One systems range in price from US$1,300 to $1,800; each sports a 19-inch wide-screen display and Intel Core 2 Duo processors. The Gateway Ones come with a built-in webcam and built-in stereo speakers. Wireless keyboard and mouse and built-in Wi-Fi should also help keep this system relatively free of cord clutter.

The Gateway One ZX190 ($1,500) sports a 1.5GHz Intel Core 2 Duo chip, 2GB of DDR2 Memory, and a 320GB hard disk. The ZX190 ($1,500) also has 1.5GHz Intel chip, 256MB of ATI Mobility Radeon video memory, and a 400GB hard disk. The high-end GZ7220 ($1,800) ships with 2.0GHz Intel Duo processor, 3GB of DDR2 memory, 256MB of ATI Mobility Radeon video memory, 500GB hard disk, and a TV tuner.

Each of the systems also has seven USB 2.0 ports, one FireWire port, two memory slots, two hard drive bays, and a built-in CD-R/DVD-R optical drive.
