    Gateway is owned by Acer. Sister company rin nila Packard Bell sa Europe. Some Gateways are remarked Acers..

    same with emachines, seems this Taiwan brand is buying the other small players around the Globe. Being under Acer, i guess the future of emachines, syling and the likes will depend on how Acer will perform.

    Kudos to the Gateway arm of Acer Philippines! :)
    The company’s new releases are sure giving the competition a run for their money.

    I saw their back to school laptops spread in SIP Mag at CBTL and the units sure look amazing.

    I wish nothing but the best for Gateway and Acer Phils. I just hope that they would start to seriously look at tech blogs as a great advertising platform to hit their target niche.

    Again, kudos to Gateway.

    Specs are fine. But when prices border around the P50k mark, my benchmark becomes the macbook.

  12. for the brand conscious even if it has the same specs they’ll definitely choose acer

  13. bax says:

    I think gateway as is more heavy on hardware power than its acer counter part, it has a core 2 duo rather than just a core 2 solo.

  14. Darren says:

    it’s multi-brands conspiracy of Acer, LOL

  15. @Darren: indeed, multi brand conspiracy, just like IBM Lenovo, Fujitsu-Siemens, and HP Compaq.

  16. Miguel says:

    No wonder this dual-core version wasn’t being sold as an Acer Timeline. I was looking for it.

  17. Gateway Tech says:

    Ok sana yun Gateway nung ang nagsusuport eh Pinoy Gateway techs now Gateway is supported by Indian techs try to check the difference with their support.
