Gateway own Emachines. Recently Dell now own Alienware and I have heard nothing or seen anything to say Sony have bought Gateway.

I think that your Staples assistant has probably confused the speculation of two years ago that Apple Computers Inc was to be taken over by Sony...:-)

"Publication Date: 8 March 2004


Shares of Apple Computer Inc surged to a year's high Friday amid a spate of speculation that the company was about to be bought by Sony Corp. The fact that there was no confirmation of the rumors did not deter buyers and a counter-rumor also took hold suggesting that Apple itself was about to announce a big acquisition."
