After spending some time with the Gateway ZX4800-06 I could certainly work from the machine without any issues. The Gateway ZX4800-06 isn't the best media focused machine out there, but hard core media enthusiasts won't really be looking for an AIO to start with.
The touch screen of this machine will make the Gateway ZX4800-06 a great kitchen PC or a PC for a secondary room where the aesthetics of the system are as important as the performance. The Gateway ZX4800-06 is a very attractive computer and performs well enough for most common computing tasks.
If you don't ask much from it in the way of multimedia use the Gateway ZX4800-06 will likely serve you well. The AIO is a solid offering aimed squarely at the mass market with a price that will make it a very attractive offering for users interested in a notebook simply for the reduced space needs of a notebook, but wanting a larger screen.
Hard core media fans, gamers and power users will need to shop elsewhere; the Gateway ZX4800-06 lacks the all around performance to meet the needs of these users.
