AMD has repeatedly said it has no intention of releasing a netbook processor and competiting in a market now dominated by Intel and it's Atom platform. Either Gateway didn't get the memo or decided to ignore it, as the Acer-owned OEM this week introduced the Gateway LT3100 netbook with an AMD Athlon 64 L110 processor (1.2GHz, 612KB L2 cache, 800MHz frontside bus) inside.
"The Gateway LT3100 is a smart netbook choice -- it gives customers the freedom to connect to the Internet for everything from staying up-to-date on the latest viral videos and enjoying digital music and photos, to checking on the status of projects and studying for classes," said Ray Sawall, senior product marketing manager for Acer America.
Other goodies include an 11.6-inch LED screen with a 1366x768 resolution, 2GB of DDR2 memory, 250GB hard drive, ATI Radeon X1270 graphics, WiFi, webcam, three USB 2.0 ports, 6-cell battery, and Windows Vista Basic with SP1.
The LT3100, available in black or red, carries an MSRP of $399, however no release date has yet been set.
