Gateway LT2021u


$300.00 Released October, 2009

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Lightweight and portable design, easy to carry around. Boots up very quickly, no real waiting. 3 USB ports are enough for all the peripherals most users are likely to want to use.

The Cons:Battery only lasts a couple of hours before being drained. Web cam is pretty low-res, makes you difficult to see during video conferences. Not enough graphics processing power even for fairly simple games, can only really run browser-based games.

The Gateway LT2021u is an entry-level, 10.1" netbook, part of the lower-end LT20 series. While LT21-series models are available with the Intel Atom N450 processor, the LT2021u utilizes the slower N270, which runs at 1.6 GHz.

It features a red finish and only a 3-cell battery, improving portability but reducing battery life. The netbook comes with 1 GB of memory and wireless networking, but Bluetooth is unavailable. Other connectivity includes a 5-in-1 card reader. The LT2021u comes with a 160GB hard drive – 250GB models are also available. Yet unlike some low-end netbooks, the LT2021u features a trackpad supporting multi-touch gestures. A webcam and three USB ports are standard, and Windows XP is pre-installed. Gateway offers other nearly identical models featuring 6-cell batteries, black finishes, and Windows 7 rather than XP.
