Gateway's innovative, three-bay BTX chassis design more efficiently cools internal components, delivering exceptional reliability and longer system life. The tool-free design also makes it simple to access components without removing the front bezel or replacing optical drive retention screws, enabling IT organizations to quickly and easily support and service this desktop.

"The Gateway E-2610 is a small form factor desktop that provides high-end performance and system flexibility at a great value," said Steve Bulling, senior group desktop product manager for Gateway. "Our customers appreciate that this system can be tailored to fit any business environment through the choices we offer in processors, drives, and the BTX chassis."
