Reviews for the Gateway LT3201u
Netbooks have settled into a comfortable set of stock components, offering basic PC functionality for prices unheard of even a few years ago. The typical setup of a 10-inch display, Intel Atom N450 CPU, 1GB of RAM, and Windows 7 Starter is easy to find for as little as $299, and more than adequate for many tasks, from e-mail to surfing the Web. Offering a little more Netbook for a little more money, the Gateway LT32 is a solid step up in power, screen size, and price.

The entire experience with a portable computer, be it a big gaming notebook or a tiny netbook like this one, starts with the tactile feel. If you don't like the keyboard and touch pad, you'll never truly fall in love with your laptop. Sure, you can connect a mouse (and in extreme cases, a keyboard), but in the case of a netbook, that thwarts portability. This finger-friendly netbook gets a whole lot right. Its speed justifies the $449 price if you crunch or play back lots of media on the go.

ATI Radeon HD 4225: Onboard graphics card (in the RS880M chipset) that is able to decode HD videos (thanks to the UVD2). Technically a slower clocked HD 4250.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
K125: Slow entry level single core CPU for small and light laptops. Still faster as 1.6 Ghz Atom based systems.» 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.
