Gateway’s 11.6-inch LT3103u netbook unboxedWe have already seen a quick review of Gateway’s AMD-powered LT3103u netbook. However that was very short on pictures. This is where NetbookTech’s unboxing comes into play, where everything is shown from the packaging to the accessories. The pictures show just how glossy that lid is and also how considerate Gateway has been in providing access panels for the RAM, HDD and Wi-Fi module (much like the Acer Aspire One 751).

The battery does stick quite a way out of the back of the LT3103u, but that’s the price you pay for decent battery life. However, the tilt provided gives a more comfortable typing experience according to the report. I didn’t realise that this netbook comes with a chiclet keyboard, which I only noticed from the pictures. The Gateway LT3103u comes with an 11.6-inch (1366 x 768) display and also has discrete graphics in the form of an ATI Radeon X1270 GPU. Check out the full gallery of unboxing pictures over at Netbooktech.

Gateway LT3103uAcer owned, Gateway, has launched an 11.6-inch netbook of its own that may rival Acer’s Aspire One 751. However, the Gateway LT3103u is a very different beast compared to the Aspire One 751.

It has a full-sized keyboard and multi-touch touchpad. It is powered by a 1.2GHz Athlon 64 L110 processor and the X1270 graphics comes with 256MB of dedicated memory.

Other features include up to 2GB RAM and 250GB HDD, card reader, 0.3MP webcam three USB ports and a 6-cell battery. You won’t find Windows XP on this device, only Vista Basic. It will be available in two colours (NightSky Black and Cherry Red) when it launches shortly for $399.99.
