 NORTH SIOUX CITY, S.D., April 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Gateway 2000


yesterday built computer number 500,000, reaching yet another milestone in the direct market PC manufacturer's extraordinary six-year history.
 "When Mike Hammond and I started Gateway 2000 in 1985, we had no idea we would ever sell half a million PCs," said Gateway 2000 President and CEO Ted Waitt. "At our current pace, we'll reach 1 million systems next year."
 Gateway's production workers assemble an average of 1,500 units per day in the company's plant located in North Sioux City.
 "Our 500,000th system is a 25MHz 386SX desktop system purchased by Kathy Tyler of Big Stone City, S.D.," said Gateway 2000 Marketing Manager Mike Schmith. "For being the purchaser of this special computer, Kathy will also receive one of our new notebook computers as a gift."
 Sales Representative R.J. Reimer, who sold Tyler her system, will personally deliver the computer later this week.
