Gateway LT1004u 8.9-inch Netbook Subnotebook Laptop PC The Gateway LT1004u is essentially a rebadged Acer Aspire One 8.9-inch netbook. They share the same base features, functions and flaws. Since it uses an 8.9-inch display, it is smaller than many of the newer 10-inch models. The big problem is that the Gateway LT1004u is more expensive than a comparable Acer Aspire One. So, unless you want the two toned color design of the Gateway, it is better to purchase the Aspire One.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 950: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on Mobile Intel 945GM chipset. It is a faster clocked version of the GMA 900 and supports no hardware T&L (Transform & Lightning) accelleration (which is required for some games).
These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.
Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).
Power efficient, cheap and slow Netbook single core CPU. Because of the in-order execution, the performance per MHz is worse than Core Solo or Celeron M processors.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
This display diagonal is quite small for tablets.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
Mainly, bigger-sized tablets and convertibles weigh as much.
