Features

The Gateway SX2800-01 is a small form factor that combines design elements that address how people use computers today, and is touted to make overall computing experience more intuitive for the user. The device features a “digital photo frame” button that provides users with a single touch that delivers a slide show of favorite photos. To facilitate transfer of photos and other data to and from the PC, a “device deck” is designed into the system. This small recessed area on top of the chassis is designed to allow users to set a camera, MP3 player or camcorder while connecting to USB ports and downloading media. The front access digital media card reader can also be tilted upward, allowing optimal visual contact with the user and can be accessed if the chassis is placed under a desk. The form factor also features a rear cable management hook that allows users to organize cables running from the rear ports; and a grip on the backside of the chassis to pick up and move the systems from location to location. The SX2800-01 is powered by an Intel® Core™ 2 Quad Q8200 processor that provides users with technology needed for general productivity use and casual gaming, in a tiny footprint small enough to fit in a small dorm room or placed in a kitchen or the family den. The integrated Intel® Graphics makes the unit ideal for watching movies, home video, viewing digital photos, or casual game playing. The HDMI port delivers high definition audio and visuals to a big screen TV or external LCD through a single cable.
