Yes, Gateway computers are back, complete with the back black & white cow boxes available at exclusivelyWalmart for now. I remember my first PC udesktop computer was a Gateway 386SX brought for the discounted price of $3,600. I think that was around 1990. It was a big step up from the 286 we used at work. From some things, we would have to let the 286 running overnight. Back then Gateway started building machines in a barn, hence the black &white cow boxes. And the magazine Computer Shopper which was the size of the phone book was where you did your computer shopping.
Acer, which acquired Gateway in 2007, is bringing back the brand to sell consumer-focused laptops in the US. The products will be sold exclusively through Walmart.
