In 2007 -- right before Acer swallowed the firm whole -- computer manufacturer Gateway sold their entire business lineup to MPC. Three years and one bankrupt MPC later, Gateway's ready to give it another go with brand new business desktops, and some decently specced ones at that. The new Gateway DT-series mid-towers support up to Core i7 CPUs and 16GB of DDR3 memory alongside a 1TB hard drive, and wonder of wonders, the small form factor Gateway DS-series can hold just the same. Both run on Intel's Q57 and H57 Express chipsets, both have slots for optional PCI Express x16 graphics cards, and both have chassis stolen directly from their parent company -- Google "X480G" and "M480G" if you don't believe us. Compared to your shiny new gaming rig, the specs may seem ho-hum, but a Core i7 rig that fits underneath an LCD monitor is still a fairly big deal inside that cube of yours.

Update: Looking to bolster your business with a few of these machines? You'll have to get in touch with your international associates; Acer tells us the DT and DS desktops are only headed to Europe.
