How does Hollywood depict a futuristic computer It usually has a flat screen and a keyboard -- and nothing else Gateways Profile 3cx is the closest any manufacturer has come to this ideal configuration It improves on the Profile 2 by moving the CPU drives and ports back behind the LCD screen the still-available Profile 2 has the components in the monitors base while the original Profile had them behind the screen With its beefed-up components and refined design the Profile 3cx offers plenty of power in a remarkably small amount of space Closely packed into the area directly behind the 15-inch LCD screen are a 866MHz Pentium III 128MB of SDRAM an 8x DVD drive a 205GB hard drive a floppy drive a 56K modem two Type II PC Card slots and four USB ports All this is contained inside a chassis thats only 6 inches deep and the chassis is raised on its stand so you can store the keyboard underneath This creates an extremely small footprint when the computer isnt being used which makes it an excellent choice for a student dorm or an office with a too-small desk With few wires to connect and disconnect the Profile 3cx could serve as an extra home computer that you move from room to room We found the digitally connected TFT flat-panel screen to be sharp and easy to read The stand lets you orient the screen up and down The penalty you pay for the sleek design is the extra time it takes to use the side-mounted floppy and DVD drives While its technically possible to access the drives without moving your head most users will find themselves leaning to either side to get a better view The keyboard is compact without sacrificing the size of most of the keys Two groups of keys are reduced in size and repositioned The four cursor keys are under the right shift key
