The $299 Netbook club is getting a little bit bigger with the announcement of Gateway's 10.1-inch LT2000. Gateway calls it "a sleek and compact," system that will, "let mobile customers maximize their time on the go to stay connected and productive." We call it a Gateway-branded version of corporate-cousin Acer's popular Aspire One (also available for $299).

Like the Acer models, the Gateway LT2000 supports some basic multi-touch gestures on its touchpad, and it will be available in red and black (sorry, that's actually "NightSky Black and Cherry Red").

Look for it to be available to order starting today. Click through for more pics and specs.
