Weighing in at 3.04 lbs. and 1.03 inches thick, the LT3103u packs AMD’s Athlon 64 L110 single-core CPU (1.2 GHz, 800 MHz FSB, 512 KB L2 Cache), 2 GB of DDR2, ATI Radeon X1270 graphics coupled with an AMD RS690E chipset, a 250 GB hard drive, 802.11b/g, an 11.6-inch high-def WXGA Ultrabrite LED-backlit display, 3 x USB 2.0, VGA, multi-card reader, high-def audio support, a mic, audio out and a 0.3 mp webcam.
Alright so the size of the display (11.6-inches in case you got lost in all the numbers) along with the fact that it ships with Windows Vista Home Basic means it definitely falls into our “this is not a netbook” category. However, its netbook pricetag makes up for all of that. There’s no word on a specific launch date but when it does go on sale, the computer will be available at Best Buy and you can take one home for just $400, which definitely isn’t a bad deal.
What do you guys think? Is there anyone on the market for a netbook and would consider the Gateway LT3103u an option? Let us know!
this could be my ideal laptop.
250GB HDD and 11.6inch screen for $400 is nice. anything about it is good except maybe for the battery life which we don't know yet.
If I needed a netbook/small laptop, this would be the thing I would get. I'd go for something a bit stronger and bigger though. I want to do more than just that, so it's either going to be a heavy laptop or just a pc, but probably another pc for me.
I have no idea how well this processor can perform, but the better graphics should help.
Also, netbooks are all about battery life.. So that has to be reviewed too.
