gateway-1805hIt’s fairly common practice for companies to re-brand a product if they think it might lead to sales of a few extra units. That looks to be the case with the “new” Gateway EC1805U thin and light, which bears a striking resemblance to parent company Acer’s Aspire 1410.

Let’s take a look at the internals: Intel SU3500 processor, 2GB DDR2 memory, 250GB SATA hard drive, 11.6″ LED display, HDMI output, and Windows Vista Home Premium SP1. Yep, that sounds exactly like the innards of an Aspire 1410 that happens to be sitting on retail shelves right now.

The EC1805U goes for $449 on Amazon and will start shipping on December 9th. The same unit with Acer branding? $23 less. Personally, I’d probably pick up the Acer and pocket the savings.
