Gateway bought out eMachines a couple of months ago but they're not converged enough yet to have merged all of their product lines. This is demonstrated by the fact both brands announced and released new notebooks during the past week that actually compete with one another.

The eMachines M6810 and M6811 AMD 64-bit powered multimedia notebooks and the Gateway M320 thin-and-light notebook were also announced this week.
Averatec today unveiled its 6200 series Widescreen Mobile Theatre. This notebook follows the trend that we've seen of late for incorporating multimedia features into a computer that can be used without actually booting up the operating system. Last week the release of the Toshiba Qosmio brought to market the first laptop that could have instant on DVD and TV playing ability. Although the Averatec 6200 Mobile Theatre does not feature a built-in TV player as the Qosmio does, the Averatec machine is half the price with a suggested MSRP of $1199, a great deal for a widescreen computer and instant on DVD player.

When I bought the Fujitsu LifeBook P5020D about six months ago, I told everyone it was the best piece of technology I had ever purchased. Amazingly the new Fujitsu LifeBook P7000 series has gone beyond the basics with their refresh, creating a machine that is vastly better in many areas. There aren’t a ton of major upgrades, CrystalView screen aside, but the big wins lie in the details
