Gateway Inc. rolled out the LT2000, the latest model in its’ line of sleek, compact netbooks. But one wonders if producing netbooks geared towards the consumer market is the latest under-the-radar strategy for a PC maker that has seemingly drifted into the background in recent months.

The Gateway LT2000 netbook line measures about an inch thin and weighs 2.62 pounds, officials said.
