The Gateway LT41P is a 10 inch laptop with a touchscreen display, an Intel Celeron Bay Trail processor, and Windows 8 software. List prices start at $330, but TigerDirect has had an entry-level model available for a few weeks for just $280.
That makes the LT41P one of the most inexpensive 10 inch touchscreen notebooks around.
For that price you get a little laptop with a 1.46 GHz Intel Celeron N2805 dual-core processor, a 10.1 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel touchscreen display, 2GB of RAM, and a 320GB hard drive.
The notebook runs Windows 8 32-bit software, comes with Microsoft Office 2013 Home & Student, and measures 10.1″ x 7.2″ x 1.3″ and weighs 2.4 pounds.
The base model has a 28Whr battery which should provide up to 5 hours of battery life. There’s also a model with a larger 56Whr battery which should be good for up to 10 hours — but which brings the laptop’s weight up to 2.7 pounds.
According to the Gateway website, there are 5 different versions of the laptop — but 4 of them seem to be identical. The stand-out is the Gateway LT41P09u, which has the larger battery and sells for $350.
The Gateway LT41p first showed up in Europe in October, where it’s also sold under the Packard Bell brand. Gateway and Packard Bell are both subsidiaries of Acer.
