We're not going to contest Gateway's
claims of having
one of the most serviceable all-in-one desktop PCs around in their recently updated Profile 6 line, and we admire their
educational endeavors, but we can't say this is the most, erm, svelte
all-in-one desktop we've seen around. The
new unit keeps it kind of old school with a 3GHz P4 631, with HyperThreading instead of that Dual Core
stuff all the kids are talking about these days.
Fronting the box is an adjustable 17-inch LCD, which hides such functionality as a DVD-ROM/CD-RW drive, WiFi, 512MB of
RAM, and a 80GB HDD. You can also upgrade the Profile 6 using it's available PCI, and PCI Express, memory, HDD, and
even floppy disk drive slots. We should be seeing this unit in the US this April for around $1200.
