After Gateway released their 30-inch, 1600pXHD3000 display, they're hoping to springboard the positive press into their entire line of LCDs, including their new 24-inch ($499) and 22-inch ($350) models. Both have impressive monitor specs, double as HD TVs (1080p and 720p, respectively) and feature image enhancement through a Faroudja video processing chipset. Obviously neither display is rocking 1600p upscaling, but we're guessing these models show some pretty pictures nonetheless. Besides, their slew of inputs including HDMI mean we might actually utilize their extended video functionality. Hit the jump for the full stat smattering.
AU: My folks got me a Gateway system way back when... it was a P3 500, to place it historically... wasn't too worried when they left the local market, but these screens are making me wish they'd consider coming back.
