Detailed Description

Update

Founded in 1985 in an Iowa barn, Gateway grew to be one of the largest retailers of PC hardware and software in the late 90s. After years as a multi-billion dollar company, however, Gateway lost its status as one of the Fortune 500 biggest companies in 2006. In late 2007, Gateway was acquired by Taiwan's Acer Technologies for $710 million.

Gateway develops, supports and markets a range of computers and displays to consumers and the media, including personal computers, computer monitors, and servers.
