<i>LT30 Series</i><br><br>Acer has said it doesn't plan to pull its successful [[Artnid:255299|Aspire One series of netbooks|Review: Acer Aspire One ZG5 (Linux) netbook]] from the market, but that hasn't stopped it from releasing a similar mini-laptop under the Gateway brand. Part of Gateway's "Summer Breeze" collection, this 11.6in netbook is slightly too large to fall into Microsoft's requirements to run Windows XP. As a result, it will run Windows Vista Home Basic out of the box, but never fear &#8212; Acer will offer a free upgrade to Windows 7 from 22 October, and you'll only have to pay postage and handling charges.<br><br>Priced at $899, the LT30 notebooks are fairly similar to other netbooks on the market: you get 1GB of DDR2 memory, a 1.33GHz Intel Atom CPU and a 160GB hard drive. Considering you can grab an [[Artnid:279276|Aspire One netbook|Review: Acer Aspire One AOD150 netbook]] with a 1.6GHz Atom CPU for $100 less, it seems you are paying for increased screen real estate &#8212; 11.6in compared to the Aspire One's 10.2in &#8212; and the design.
