The Gateway ZX2301 looks clunkier than the other all-in ones but for a reason. It has a
sub-woofer built at the back. While the sound quality isn't great, it definitely adds more punch to the sound than the speakers on all the all-in-one PC's speakers we've heard. The 18.5-inch screen has a basic 1366x768 pixel resolution. Below that are touch-sensitive buttons that respond to the multi-media interface overlayed on the os. Below that we have a standard front-loading DVD writer. There's no dedicated button to turn the screen off. Ithasjust one USB port at the side. Above that is a volume roller that also can be pressed to mute audio. The 160 GB hard disk should prove sufficient for storing basic stuff but we feel that they could have fit a larger hard drive in it. The compact keyboard is creaky and isn't very comfortable to type on. On the other hand, the mouse has a good grip and is quite easy touse.
