Reviews for the Gateway LT3106a
Source: Reseller News
Overall, there’s a lot to like about this offering from Acer Gateway, but the operating system of Windows Vista Home Basic may dissuade buyers looking to jump on the Windows 7 bandwagon. The LT3106a retails for $1099. This falls within the higher range for a netbook, but the more powerful specifications and the bigger screen size mean it’s value for money.

ATI Radeon Xpress X1270: Built in RS690T chipset and is based on an X700 graphics core (with less pipelines). It features no dedicated graphics memory but Vista Aero support.
These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.
L110: Slow clocked single core processor with a similar performance as 1.6 GHz Intel Atom CPUs but a higher power consumption.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.
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.
This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
