Most of the giant operations might not be pleased with it, but the mainstream operation line from Gateway the E-4100 is surely an excellent option for small to medium sized business firms. It is packed with 6.3 LANDesk Client Manger that proves to a great help in monitoring E-4100-C systems and easily update small files. This included 6.3 LANDesk client Manager does not organize entire applications or images remotely while the other management packages that were review do for a fee. The Gateway E-4100 model also uses the same software image and it can also be easily repaired and upgraded.
The Gateway E-4100-C is one among the three corporate lines of Gateway you already came across. However like the MPC, gateway also has just two PC models in every line while the other companies include around three to four options. There is also the E-2100 line which includes low cost systems and the E-6100 line that features machines that have greatest and latest hardware, whereas the E-4100-C is the mainstream line of the company which delivers midlevel hardware at affordable price. Although there are no possibilities of using the same software image for three lines, you might also not face any problems using the same image within every line. Additionally the three families also shared the same driver set which lets you use the same drivers for all the three lines. Apart form the difference in size the mini tower versions and small form factor of E-4100-C have similar Intel motherboard.
However Gateway has guaranteed that every system would be available for nearly 12 months but the fact is that the mainstream system E-4100-C would remain in the market for much longer time. After the end of 12 month life cycle the mainstream lines of Gateway are typically converted to low cost lines. Each Gateway corporate PC is packed with its own supplement of 6.3 LANDisk Client Manager software which allows you locally account and monitor the system. However if you wish to remotely manage the system then you can just pay around $49 extra to avail a copy of Client Manager Administrator that is able to query machines from anywhere in the network.
Although the Client Manager is not as powerful as the Management suites of IBM and Dell, but it does well in its functions and it can be all what you needed. For instance, as other competitive tools are generally a bit difficult to learn, the web based interface of Client Manager is remarkably intuitive. Even the beginner computer users might not have much trouble operating this system hardware. The inventory resource or details are extremely detailed and the Client Manage can tell you clearly which memory slot is filled and one that is not. The software can also tell you the IRQs which are already taken. Additionally there is a wide range of method to monitor the system as you can check the voltages and for high temperature or even receive alerts when systems have failed a certain amount of memory or disk space.
