Conclusion: The Gateway LT 2016u from Verizon Wireless is not a bad little netbook, it’s like most others out there so don’t expect anything really different from it. The main reason to get this netbook of course is for the built in access to the Verizon network, and that it does well, but your connection speeds will vary on many factors.
Pros: Small and lightweight, Decent performance, Simple, easy to use, Decent battery life, Nice keyboard
Cons: Wireless/Verizon network is rather slow for me, Small touchpad, Trial software installed and other junk, Large battery
Summary: We’re pretty firm in our stance that paying $60 per month for data is a lot when it’s just for a single device that likely won’t be your primary PC. In general we recommend that users purchase a USB modem (or MiFi), so they can share the data connection across multiple PCs and make the most of that monthly fee.
Pros: Good 3G data performance, Stylish design, Bright crisp screen, More than 6 hours of battery life using Wi-Fi,
Cons: Cramped touchpad, Runs hot on bottom, Expensive total cost with two-year contract, Annoying error messages from Verizon software,
