Gateway hybrid HD desktop

Gateway today announced the shipment of several new desktop computers, the focus of which is the GM5664. Sold only at retail, the system is one of the few mainstream computers with a hybrid Blu-Ray/HD DVD drive, allowing playback of both HD media types, though it can only burn standard DVDs and CDs. The system is also equipped with a quad-core AMD Phenom 9600 processor, a 1TB hard drive, and a 256MB Radeon HD 2400 XT video card. It is currently selling for $1,150. As a cheaper option, the GT5662 switches to a DVD SuperMulti drive, a Phenom 9500 chip, and a smaller 500GB hard drive. Its price is $750.

In its budget eMachines line, Gateway has scaled from AMD's Sempron chips to the superior, dual-core Athlon X2 line. The first example of this is T3642, which uses an X2 4200+, combined with 2GB of RAM, a 400GB hard drive, and a DVD SuperMulti drive. Video is limited to an integrated GeForce 6100 chip. It is on sale for $430.
