Gateway One ZX6951-53 23? Multi-Touch All-in-One Desktop PC

This All-in-one Desktop PC from Gateway One includes a blu-ray drive, friendly design, crisp audio output and has overall good performance and decent feature set matching its price tag. The rear-side ports are covered by clunky panel which looks somewhat bad. Also the HDMI video implementation is strange and not very user-friendly. Though it has some specific crotchets, it’s inviting design and other features make it very good for normal usage and home entertainment.

The bizarre design around rear side ports makes it look awkward but it is definitely a worthy self-contained digital media oriented desktop which is best choice home entertainment. The PC comes for a price of $999 and includes most of features that a Desktop with this price tag is supposed to possess. The Desktop could be connected to game console, cable box or any other home entertainment device in order to enjoy a great multimedia experience.
