The Gateway DX4850-45u stands out among all the other home entertainment desktop PCs in the market. Compared to all the slim-built units, the DX4850-45u is easily noticeable with its midtower-based design. The units decent set of applications, which includes an HDMI output and a Blu-ray drive, suggest that the unit is tailored to suit digital media purposes.
Not all desktop computers are as versatile as the All-In-One PC ET2011EGT in terms of design and functionality. This desktop computer boasts an ultra-slim and stylish design. It can easily multitask and, with its HDMI switch, it can easily switch between monitor and PC modes.
This ultra-slim AIO desktop computer can very well double as a wall flatscreen television! It is designed cleverly that it can be mounted on a wall. Along with its audio and video capacities, it will truly seem like youre watching an HD television.
As a desktop computer, it takes up so little space, and needs only additional desk space for attaching a keyboard and a mouse.
Just like Asus other recent desktop computers, the AIO PC ET2011EGT is also installed with a Super Hybrid Engine that increases performance speed by 12%.
The screen and graphics quality of this desktop is also something to be excited about. Equipped with Radeon HD5470 Graphics, video and graphics display are very good. Consumers will enjoy watching videos and playing PC games on this desktop.
It has a multi-touch touchscreen and Web connectivity options that are useful for business and office purposes.
Rounding up its multimedia capacity is the built-in 1.3 webcam for video conferences and high-speed connectivity options like Gigabit Ethernet and WiFi.
Despite of its high-end capabilities and equipment, the AIO PC ET2011EGT misses out on several features as well. It doesnt have Blu-ray support, which lessens the appeal of the DVD/CD optical drive. It also lacks Bluetooth and Firewire support, which are both useful options for connectivity and file transferring.
The AIO PC ET2011EGT does not support wireless keyboard and mouse, unlike the AIO PC ET2400XVT. This isnt a big disadvantage, of course, but it would have been interesting to be able to these peripherals while the desktop computer is mounted on a wall.
The Asus AIO PC ET2011EGT is definitely a gem both in the office and at home. It is excellent as an entertainment and multimedia gear with its gaming, movie playing and audio capacities, while its high-speed connectivity and processors also make it an ideal helpmate for office functions.

As a follow up to the C series C1-02, the Nokia C1-01 is a step up with some additional features. In essence, it is very closely similar to the C1-02; but oddly enough, both models are not comparable with the Nokia C1-00 since it is very different in many ways.
The ZX4951-33e is one of the best models included in Gateway’s range of mid-price desktop PCs. Compared to its predecessors, the ZX4951-33e offers better multimedia performance and boasts of a more appealing design.
Priced at less than a grand, the Gateway One ZX6900-49 is one of the more decent budget desktop PCs in the market. It boasts of an Intel Core i3 processor as well as several convenient entertainment features. This model has a Blu-ray drive, an HDTV tuner, and most importantly, a 1080p HD resolution touchscreen.
The X6 model is Nokias very first capacitive touchscreen music phone. It was first released with a 32GB internal storage capacity. Later, a second version was released with 16GB. Now, Nokia has made it possible for more people to own the X6 at an even lower price with Nokia X6 8GB.
The X6 8GB is sold at a lower price than the other X6 releases. With this mobile phone, you can get all the goodies of the X6 and pay less for it. Fast web browsing and messaging, music and other multimedia applications are right within your reach.
Unlike other Nokia series where the features of the original models are downgraded or completely scrapped in an effort to reduce the market price, the X6 8GB is not at all far off from the original model. In fact, the only cut made here is in the internal memory – and it is not an unfortunate compromise at all since 8GB is still a large capacity.
It has a wide touchscreen that is an advantage when browsing the Net. The screen resolution is also impressive at 360 x 640 pixels.
It has a very good 5MP Carl Zeiss camera.
Some might view the reduction of the memory to be a disadvantage, but more people are already satisfied with 8GB.
The X6 8GB doesnt have any feature upgrades or additions at all. Other than the reduced price, there is not much that can sway customers into buying the more expensive X6 32GB or 16GB if they have the money.
The sharp edges and rectangular shape makes it quite bulky and difficult to conveniently tuck into a jeans pocket.
Although the operating system used (Symbian^1 S60) is good enough for the X6 functions, it is still considered as an inferior OS when compared to the rest of the competition.
In essence, there is no difference between the X6 8GB and the original X6, save for the diminished internal memory capacity. This should not be a big issue though, since with 8GB you can still input lots of songs and albums and have enough space left for pictures and inbox. As a plus, the reduced price tag (US$285 from 16GBs US$317)) of the X6 8GB will also be a better match for anyones budget.

Users who need to deal with heavy multitasking or a great bulk of video editing/processing tasks will find the Gateway GM5478 a convenient choice. It’s the first Gateway desktop to employ an Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 processor.
However, despite the integration of the new NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT graphics board, this graphics board cannot support highly complex levels of accelerated high-def video decoding. In terms of 3D graphics, the unit also fails to support anything that goes beyond basic casual PC games.
This whooper of a desktop unit from Gateway employs the new technology of wireless connectivity, which is paired by the equally advanced power of a 3.2GHz Intel Core i3-550 Processor.
With the Gateway SX2851-41, users can enjoy various multimedia applications, entertainment features and the standard set of computing features. For added convenience, the package provides users with a digital device holder as well as high-def microphone and headphone jacks.
Gateway presents an affordable household PC in the form of the FX6850-5lu desktop PC. Sold at an introductory price of $999, the Gateway FX6850-5lu boasts of a fast Intel Core i7 2600 processor. It’s also integrated with an equally fast Intel P67 chipset. However, the unit’s less remarkable graphics card may limit the machine’s capacity to deliver stellar 3D performance.
