At first you would probably think the Gateway LT32 Series is a brand new 11.6-inch netbook / notebook on the market. But the Gateway LT32 is in fact just a simple re-branding of the Acer Aspire One 721.
This comes of no real surprise as we have seen Gateway do this a number of times, and especially as Gateway is owned by Acer.
The external design remains the same as the Acer, but of course with Gateway branding in its place. The specifications are 100% identical to the Acer One 721, but interestingly, the price isn’t the same.
The Acer AO721 is available for $430, but the Gateway L32 on the other hand costs $450, $20 extra for a brand change. So unless you really want the Gateway, you might as well save a few dollars and get the Acer.
For those of you not familiar with the specifications, the Gateway LT32 Series features an 11.60-inch display, with a 1366 x 768 pixel resolution, and makes use of the ATI Radeon HD 4225 graphics (with HDMI output), which have been shown to enable playback of 1080p HD video, including YouTube.
It also features the 1.7Ghz AMD Athlon II Neo K125 processor, 2GB of DDR3 RAM, a 250GB hard drive, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Gigabit Ethernet, HD Webcam, 3x USB 2.0 outputs, VGA & HDMI output and a multicard reader. It runs Windows 7 Home Premium Edition.
We have yet to see the LT32 listed at any stores just yet, but we expect to see it very soon.
