Today Gateway introduces their new LT21 Series netbook, which offers up to 10 hours of battery life thanks to the new Intel Pineview N450 Atom processor. The Gateway LT21 netbook models with the 6-cell Lithium-ion Extended battery (5600mAh) are the ones that promise to deliver double-digit battery life, and when combined with an 802.11N Wi-Fi wireless connection should help boost productivty as well.
Additional Gateway LT21 models are available with the standard 6-cell Li-Ion battery (4400mAh) and 802.11b/g Wi-Fi and provide up to eight hours of battery life. The new design of the LT21 is sleeker and more modern looking than previous Gateway ultraportables. Weighing only 2.76 pounds and measuring only about an inch thin, the Gateway LT21 netbook is easy to carry by hand or in a book bag or purse, so customers will have it handy to connect to the Internet, stay in touch, and access social networks like Facebook and YouTube.
The new design of the Gateway LT21 netbook features a 10.1-inch LED-backlit TFT display that delivers a 22.2 percent power savings compared to traditional netbook displays. The 10.1-inch widescreen display has a 1024×600 resolution. The keybaord is a new larger model that is 93 percent of the size of a full-sized keyboard. Also, the 6-cell-batteries were designed to prop the netbook up slightly for a more convenient typing experience.
The LT21 also features a multi-gesture touchpad, 1GB of memory and either 160GB or 250GB of hard drive space. If connectivity is your concern then you’ll be happy to know the LT21 has three USB 2.0 ports, Ethernet and VGA as well as a multi-in-one digital card reader.
