Just a heads up guys, these netbooks WILL NOT be released on the 4th. Originally that WAS the release date, but something has pushed the launch date back to an unknown date at this point. We did manage to get a demo unit shipped to our store and when compaired to the HP that big red sells, this one falls short in a lot of ways.....

Gateway sucks... Dell is probably the best and they have that so they should get HP next.

Verizon only sells an HP, not a Dell. You can buy a netbook from Dell's website with which you can add an internal CDMA card as an optional feature when customizing it. The Gateway will be their second netbook with mobile broadband if this post is correct.

Ok, anthony Strickly YOUR opinion and a currupteed one at that....Because Dell is no way the Best "statistcally" and "realistically." they are way overpriced and everything they support is so "out-sourced" and over rated. "Dude, Your gonna Get Hell" should be thier new slogan...

You are 100% correct, to say that Dell is the best is outrageous. They use unique parts in all of their products, so if you want to be able to fix your computer when it undoubtedly breaks, you'd better get their service plan, because those parts are extraordinarily expensive. Dell, in many ways, operates their company much as Apple does, they have to have their greedy paws on every dime that's made off their products. Gateway isn't all that great either, but Dell is straight garbage.

I didn't know Gateway made netbooks, guess this is their first one. Gateway should've held out a little longer and pur Windows 7 on this. There's no reason these netbooks hafta run XP over 7 (yes I know 7 comes out the 22nd)

Technical specs aside (some netbooks just don't have the horsepower to support newer OS), another reason XP is popular among netbooks is price. The licensing fees are cheaper on XP, so putting that on a netbook allows a lower price point.
