  1. Gateway (subsidiary of Acer) has introduced its LT3100 “netbook,” which steps outside conformity and makes use of an AMD processor. Anyone can tell you the line in the sand between netbooks and notebooks is fading, and the LT3100 too, embarks beyond conventional boundaries. While its modestly petite 11.6” (16:9) WXGA LED display might yield the aura of a netbook, the LT3100 can take it a step further, as a sample configuration demonstrates in the press release.

    Does Gateway have its organizational problems worked out, or is it still in Bankruptcy.

    Luckily, they got rid of eMachines, but do they not still have a lot of work to do.

    Their significant price drops in most computers tells me all is not well at Gateway.
  3. Maybe they found the 'missing link' between netbooks and notebooks?
  4. That's good news, its cheaper than some netbooks with inferior specs and adds a bit of variety to a market flooded with Atom +crappy G945 clones.

    I'm more shocked by the Vista than the AMD chip, but thats just me.

    Will this thing be compatible with Windows 7 out of the box?
  6. I just bought a Gateway netbook at Best Buy. I was told there would be no problem updating to Windows 7.
