Toy 1 encourages couch-potato-computing; toy 2 is just plain fun (tm).

TOY #1

Gateway 2000 "Destination"

Package includes:

31" Monitor
RF-remote keyboard & mouse (better than IR, they say. They have 4 RF
channels available, so shouldn't be a problem except in really rare
instances...like businesses that have a bunch of these in the same
building, or maybe apartment hi-rises).
Pentium CPU 120 mHz
16 meg/1.2 gig
CD-ROM (ditto on speed)
3 PCI, 2 ISA
Runs Win95
Comes with software bundle
"RF Receiver" for the remotes, I guess. But it's also got a TV tuner...
Starting at $3499. Top config price $4700
