About Gateway Laptops
Gateway revolutionized the Filipino PC sales
Gateway has been in the game for PCs for a long time now. Even though they are primarily a US based company, their South Asian sales are quite good, especially in Philippines and surrounding areas. This company sells a huge array of computer products, ranging from peripheral parts to computer accessories. However, in Philippines, it is primarily known for its PCs, which includes both desktops as well as personal laptops.
Gateway began its history outside Sioux City, Iowa on 5th September 1985. Its founders, Mike Hammond and Ted Waitt named their company as Gateway2000. The 2000 was dropped from its name on 31st October, 1998. Soon, their business model as a direct PC sales corporation made them one of the most successful companies of their time. The company followed a country farm styled retail store chain called the "Gateway Country Store" located mostly in suburban areas across the United States. Gateway shipped computing devices with Windows operating system. Acer acquired Gateway for almost 710 million US dollars on October, 2007.
Gateway is credited for building the first ever practically portable computer called the "Nomad". Sub-notebook "Handbook" came shortly after and was a huge success. Toshiba Corporation assisted Gateway to release "Liberty", the 484-based sub-notebook and "Solo", one of the earliest Pentium based notebook to be industry standard. 1997 saw the release of the first ever smart TV called "The Destination". It was a 32-inch television set complimented by a Harmon Kardon surround sound stereo. Gateway expanded its empire by selling products that included DLP projectors, wireless Internet routers, MP3 players, plasma screen TV’s and digital camera.
