Probably mean Website Gateway - but it is good to hear Gateway are doing good in America. Maybe I can buy my next Computer off them finally! My last Gateway was great, but they don't sell in Europe.

Have they?! That is just wrong...

Yeah, I got a DVD Drive with Gateway. Had to ask for it specifically, and it cost 100 more, but it was worth it, eventually. I went to Woolworths when I got it, and asked where their DVDs were. They didn't know what DVDs were :P Our first DVD was Spice Girls for my Sister from PC World! This was about... 1997? maybe 1998
