Acting on its promise to cut prices, Gateway on Monday introduced several lower priced machines and said it is cutting the price of most laptops by $100. CEO Ted Waitt told analysts last week that the company would chop prices in an effort to regain lost market share. He said the company would introduce a $999 laptop with DVD player and a $499 server, both of which the company did Monday.
