The new Gateway One Looks strikingly familiar…

Now, before I even begin – I’m not bashing Gateway (although I bet some of you might). I like this machine. I don’t want one – because it’s going to run Windows – but it’s nice to have aesthetically pleasing computers on the market – and I applaud Gateway for giving it a shot…even if they did seem to understand what “Think Different” actually means.

I probably wouldn’t have even posted about this, had it just looked like an iMac knock off. Which it does (although, I do have to wonder if they even had time to rip the new iMac off – it’s only been out for a few weeks). What really strikes me is how much it looks like a certain other Macintosh….

The 20th Anniversary Mac and the Gateway One look like they’re cousins, or fraternal twins separated at birth. If the new iMac and the 20th Anniversary Macintosh got together and produced a child, it would be this new Gateway machine…at least, that’s what I think.

  1. better looking than other some of their other computers, but thats not saying much. The big black space at the bottom doesn’t look right. How much does this sell for?… $300.

  2. I was wrong… it’s $1499.

    Hmmm… $1499 for a 19″ GATEWAY or $1299 for a 20″ Mac?

    Even for someone who isn’t a Mac user this should be an easy choice.

  3. It’s the all new iCow!!

    Really nice to see more all-in-one computers, but nothing beats the new iMac, in price, specs and ascetics.

    Sine I saw the one, I’ve been wondering where before might I’ve seen it. Your post here explained by Deja Vu. Thanks a lot Michael.
