Gateway, the biggest 90s PC brand with the iconic Cow-Spotted logo, is back – well, kind of. Acer now owns the company and has decided to resell Gateway branded laptops exclusively at Walmart.
As is often the case with Walmart-exclusive laptops, the main draw is price.

I’d guess that’s at least partly because they don’t seem to have a lot of storage – only 256GB each.
Finally, Walmart also sells two Gateway-branded Android tablets – an 8-inch for $ 69 and a 10-inch for $ 79, which Gateway says costs $ 79, but is currently at $ 66.50 lies. Both are powered by an A50 processor and come in black, purple, and blue.
