Gateway has churned out the LT32 portable computer, being a bit larger than the normal netbook with 11.6-inch display. The manufacturer has also gone out of its way to make this machine multimedia and social networking-friendly.

Even though that screen isn't all that large, Gateway seems assured it should display HD and flash video well enough. Furthermore, the LT32 is probably targeted towards a younger crowd given that there is a dedicated a function key for accessing social networking sites like Facebook and YouTube directly.

Here's what else the Gateway LT32 includes:

  • 11.6-inch LED-backlit widescreen display (1,366 x 768 resolution; 16:9 aspect ratio)
  • AMD Athlon II Neo K125 1.7GHz processor
  • ATI Radeon HD 4225 graphics
  • Windows 7 Home Premium
  • 2GB of DDR3 memory
  • 250GB hard drive
  • Wi-Fi
  • 3G
  • Built-in microphone and HD webcam
  • Connectivity: Three USB 2.0 ports, VGA, Gigabit Ethernet

There are a couple of vague points, like the "multi-in-one digital card reader," and there isn't an note about weight on this portable machine nor battery life - although CNET reports we can only expect up to four hours of work time on the LT32.

Pricing for the Gateway LT32 will start at $449.99. No word on when it will actually be on sale either.

  • Bump it up to dual-core Athlon or Turion Neo and I'm interested.
