We've still yet to find a great reason to eschew our tried-and-true mouse / keyboard tandem in favor of using our desktop with just our fingers, but if you know better, Gateway has a new duo it'd sure love for you to check out. The ZX4300 line, which is the lower-end of the two, gets served AMD's Athlon II X2 CPU, Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit), a 20-inch touchpanel (1,600 x 900 resolution), integrated ATI Radeon HD 4270 graphics, 4GB of DDR3 memory a 640GB hard drive, 8x SuperMulti drive, a bundled wireless keyboard and mouse, inbuilt WiFi, gigabit Ethernet, six USB 2.0 sockets and a pair of five-watt speakers. The Gateway One ZX6900 family sports a 23-inch LCD (1,920 x 1,080), and while the vast majority of the specs mimic the others we've mentioned, the Core i3 power plant is a notable reason for paying extra. Speaking of which, the ZX4300-01e is slated to first hit stores next month for $749.99, while the ZX6900-01e lands alongside of it for $1,019.99.

GATEWAY REFRESHES ITS STYLISH ALL-IN-ONE TOUCH-SCREEN ZX SERIES PCs, BRINGING MORE VALUE THAN EVER TO STUDENTS, SENIORS AND FAMILIES

ZX4300 Series features high-performance desktop components;
ZX6900 Series adds powerful Intel Core i3 and i5 processors and a Blu-ray drive

IRVINE, Calif., May 19, 2009 – Today Gateway introduced new models in its line of sleek, modern touch-screen all-in-one ZX Series desktop computers. The ZX4300 line sees the addition of AMD Athlon II X2 processors and other powerful desktop components, making it one of the best performing all-in-ones in its price range. The larger and higher-performing ZX6900 Series also gets a boost from Intel's powerful Core i3 and i5 processors and the addition of a Blu-ray drive, making it ideal for home entertainment.

The ideal solution for cost-conscious consumers, Gateway's all-in-one PCs easily double as a TV and/or home entertainment center, making them perfect for small rooms, such as a dorm, home office or kitchen. High-definition widescreen LCDs, powerful components and integrated wireless capabilities make it easy to play online content from a Hulu or Netflix account or connect to other online entertainment portals.

"Because all-in-ones integrate a desktop tower into the back of a flat-panel display, they typically use smaller, less powerful notebook components that don't require a lot of space," said Steve Smith, senior business manager of consumer desktops, Acer America. "However, Gateway was able to leverage the latest desktop components to give consumers the best of both worlds – powerful performance and lower cost, all in a stylish, space-saving design."

The stunning Gateway One ZX Series resembles a sleek, glossy flat-panel TV with its ultra modern luxurious industrial design, and enhances the look of any room in the home. Ideally suited for a kitchen, den, bedroom or a home office, its touch screen display, wireless keyboard and mouse, webcam and integrated high-definition stereo speaker system eliminates extra components and clutter, for a clean and streamlined look.

With its snazzy touch screen capabilities, the One ZX Series delivers a fun, exciting way to interact with music, videos, photos, social media networks and more. By simply touching icons on the PC's screen, consumers can launch applications, movies, music, zoom in and out on photos and websites, resize windows and handwrite notes.

Gateway One ZX4300 Series
The new ZX4300 Series now includes powerful desktop components, bringing increased performance and no-compromise computing to this elegant design. Students and families will find it ideal for movies, games and general computing.

The ZX4300-01e includes an AMD Athlon II X2 235e processor, 640GB 7200 RPM SATA hard drive and ATI Radeon HD 4270 graphics, and possesses enough horsepower to rival most mainstream desktops, and look better while doing it.
