Gateway has thrown another netbook into the arena, introducing the LT2000 today. Judging by the press release, the LT2000 keeps true to the countless cookie-cutter Intel-based netbooks weve seen over the last year or two. While Im not trying to belittle Gateways new netbook, its hardly brimming with innovation.

The LT2000 is available in several configurations and so its price varies accordingly. A sample configuration which bears the model number LT2001u features a 10.1 WSVGA LED-backlit (16:9) display, an Intel Atom N270 CPU and 945GSE chipset, 1GB of DDR2 533MHz RAM, a 160GB HDD, 802.11b/g, a webcam, three USB 2.0 ports, a multi-in-1 card reader and a 3-cell Li-ion battery.


This particular model weighs in at 2.62lbs and has a suggested retail price of $299.99. It ships with Windows XP SP3, a one-year standard warranty and the usual round of bloatware youve come to expect.
