Gateway has announced the 11.6-inch LT32 netbook for $450. Here’s the quick and dirty:

– AMD Athlon II Neo CPU at 1.7GHz

– Windows 7 Home Premium

– 2GB of DDR3 RAM

– 250GB hard drive

– Up to 5.5 hours of battery life

– ATI Radeon HD 4225 GPU with up to 384MB of shared system memory

– 11.6-inch 1366×768 LED-backlit display

– Weighs 2.76 pounds with the included 6-cell battery

The AMD+ATI combo ought to give the LT32 a leg up in the HD video department, though the combined chipset isn’t as power-friendly as an Intel Atom setup. Hence, the 5.5 hours of battery life when comparable Intel-based systems are clearing 10 hours in some cases.

Still, you get a good 1366×768 resolution screen and the system includes HDMI output at full 1080p, so hooking it up to your big TV should be a snap. The $450 list price is pretty decent for a netbook of this caliber, too.
