Gateway is to sell its education, government and SMB arm of the business to MPC Corporation in a deal valued at about $90m.

This clown can barely program a VCR, but he takes Gateway goodies for free trade on radio payola recommending them to his few listeners that can barely plug in a computer. Oh, there are more like him all around the broadcast media too.

I'm no fan of Gateway, at least not in the last few years, but I really like working with MPC. They have the best service I have ever received and they actually seem interested in helping instead of just doing their jobs like robots.

Don't write off MPC - they are really good to their customers. We became customers of theirs because of a buyout a few years ago and I'm quite happy with them.
