Yeah, I remember when Gateway was all the rave, with their cow skin patterened boxes and all.
Lately, I haven't heard much of anything about Gateway. I guess Dell just blew them out of the water with marketing, pricing and customization options?
Gateway's eMachines arm is doing better for them than Gateway is, I believe. To the point where a number of Gateway boxes look remarkably similar to the eMachines models. I think they're doing okay on laptop sales, and their new 24" LCD made some waves this past year, but they still aren't the powerhouse they once were.
