Gateway Launches AMD-Based Netbook, Selling Soon for $450

Right around this time in 2008, AMD said it was taking a wait-and-see approach to the netbook market, saying "We are watching that segment rather than playing in it, but as it matures we'll see where it goes." It looks like the world's second largest chip maker has seen enough, as we see yet another AMD-based netbook emerge.

This latest entry comes from Gateway, which just announced its 11.6-inch LT32 Series netbook built around AMD's Athlon II Neo K125 processor clocked at 1.7GHz. It will also pack ATI Radeon HD 4225 graphics with 384MB of onboard memory.

"The Gateway LT32 is a true ultra-mobile entertainment powerhouse netbook," said Pete Dailey, senior product marketing manager for Gateway netbooks. "It delivers a heightened level of performance and HD entertainment with the powerful combination of AMD Neo processors, ATI graphics, and the crisp and clear HD display. The HDMI port means that customers can enjoy their digital entertainment on a large external display wherever they go."

Other specs include 2GB of DDR3 memory, 250GB hard drive, 3G, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, three USB 2.0 ports, and pretty much everything else you'd expect to find on a netbook.
