saw that coming. eMachines and their stores, terrible ideas.
I think Compaq/HP has shown the PC industry that you can't make it on home/consumer sales alone. You wont fine too many Gateways in a corporate
enviroment. Their store in my town opened and closed within a year. They never stocked anything either. Remember Micron? They did great with direct
sales but, like Gateway, never had any real penetration in the corp. arena though Dell is doing well with consumer and corporate sales. You must do
both to survive in one of the largest commodity markets out there.
