Gateway launches $300 LT netbook

Gateway LT2000 Netbook

Gateway this morning extended its LT series to include its first Intel-based netbook. The LT2000 opts for familiar specifications with a 10-inch display, 1.6GHz Atom, 1GB of RAM and a 160GB hard drive, most of which help bring down the price significantly from the faster, larger LT3100. It does inherit the more expensive system's multi-touch trackpad to scroll using circular motions or to swipe through documents using two fingers.

The portable is outfitted with a webcam and a card reader but has a 3-cell battery that lasts for a strictly typical 3 hours of battery life. Gateway will sell the LT2000 in stores later today and is counting on price as a selling point, with black and red versions both selling for $300.
