The Gateway LT4010U is a lightweight and portable netbook that runs on a compressed version of Windows 7. Gateway is now part of Acer, another popular maker of netbooks and laptops.
It has Wi-Fi connectivity and is meant for on-the-go basic computing needs such as answering emails and keeping up with social networks. It has one-touch integration with Facebook, Flickr, and YouTube. It also has several connectivity options, including three USB ports, an HDMI port and a VGA port.
The Gateway LT4010U runs Windows 7 Starter, a smaller, more-compact version of Windows 7. With a basic version of Microsoft Office installed (Word and Excel only), the model can be good for children. CostHelper Bottom Line: Advertised prices for the Gateway LT4010U do not vary more from the $228 base MSRP. Netbooks are increasingly difficult to find as many customers find similar function and greater portability in tablets.
