  • The reduction in size without sacrificing power makes the Gateway SX2865 an excellent choice for a home computer.

    The Gateway SX2865-UR11P is a simple, no-frills all-in-one desktop which comes equipped with an Intel Pentium 2.70GHz Dual-Core Processor G630, 4GB of installed DDR3 memory, a 500GB hard drive, a range of connectivity options and more.

    Saying that this desktop is no-frills may put some people off; however, this is a good thing, as it means that it plays to its strengths.


  • - The programs that do come with the TouchSmart suite are intuitive and have large, finger-friendly icons, making them easy to use.


  • - The IQ506's built-in webcam is nice, and includes one feature I haven't seen before on a PC: a button to instantly upload the video to YouTube.
    - The TouchSmart interface is intuitive: drag your finger across the screen to move "tiles" around, and they spin like they are on a CD carousel.


  • - The media-centric software is easy to use and to customize, with mouse or fingers.
    - The TouchSmart is appropriate as a second PC or as a lifestyle PC that fits into your living space, but as your primary system it may not do everything you want it to do.
    - The Hewlett-Packard TouchSmart IQ506 may be worthy of the Jetsons' household.

    - With an analog connection, the card converts a digital signal to an analog one, which the LCD panel promptly converts back to a digital one.
    - Dell bundles a full copy of Works Suite 2000 with the Dimension 4100 1GHz system and this is a good starting point for the major applications you're likely to need at work.

    - Setup is standard and made easy by the inclusion of both an instructional poster and a quick-start guide.
    - Although there is nothing particularly exciting about this system, it's a sound choice by any reasonable standard.
    - Gaming performance was very good, thanks to the state-of-the-art nVidia GeForce2 GTS Ultra graphics subsystem.
