The Gateway PC brand (and its cow-spotted boxes) pretty much faded into obscurity after Acer snapped it up for $710 million way back in 2007. Now, Gateway is back with a new line of laptops, 2-in-1 devices and tablets at multiple price points that can be exclusively purchased . The new devices run on Windows 10 Home and are powered by Intel processors and AMD Ryzen Mobile Processors with Radeon Graphics, depending on the model. They come in different sizes, with some models being available in bright purple, green, pink and blue, as shown in their promotional photo above featuring a cow field in psychedelic colors.

Acer’s head of global strategic alliances, Jade Zhou, said in a statement:

"The Gateway PC brand and its renowned cow-spotted boxes have been well-loved in the United States since 1985. Acer is thrilled that Walmart is becoming the exclusive provider of Gateway-branded notebooks and tablets. We are pleased that customers in the United States and Puerto Rico will have the opportunity to enjoy the beloved Gateway brand again through one of the world's top retailers."

Gateway has released 11 new devices in all. The six Ultra Slim laptops consist of one , four 14.1-inch PCs with prices ranging from $240 to $600 and one 15.6—inch option that costs . Meanwhile, the brand’s 2-in-1 hybrid is priced at $300 and comes with a one year subscription of Microsoft 365 Personal.

Gateway has also launched two new laptops designed for gaming and creative projects under the Creators series. As you’d expect, both 15.6—inch Creators laptops are a bit pricier than the Ultra Slims, with the and the Intel variant priced at $1,200. Finally, the Acer-owned brand has also released an 8-inch ($70) and a 10-inch ($80) low-cost Android 10 tablet. Gateway plans to launch even more laptops this fall and to expand its offerings with additional products in the coming months.
