Gateway's New Media Center PC

The first Media Center PCs appeared more than a year ago, and finally a major PC manufacturer has finally released a Media Center system that doesn't look like a PC but rather a stereo component. Gateway's new FMC-901 Family Media Center PC comes in an attractive case that looks like it belongs in the stereo rack by the family TV rather than in your home office. The system starts at $850 for a 2.6GHz Celeron processor and $1800 for a 3GHz Pentium 4 processor with DVD burner. The company also sells an interesting all-in-one (Apple Computer iMac-like) Media Center PC that includes all the PC components behind the sleek wide-screen LCD. Let's hope other companies follow Gateway's lead and introduce designs for Media Center PCs that don't just look like other PCs
