Acer Aspire One 11.6

Tuesday, March 24, 2009

For a very long time, I considered Acer to be one of those companies into cheap notebooks for the masses. When I say "cheap," I think about cheap looks and use of cheap materials before anything else, but - fortunately - it seems I was wrong. The Acer Aspire One is a very popular netbook line, and some of my friends have older Aspire Ones, with all of them working flawlessly, at least so far.

Now, the Acer Aspire One family will get a new member, the Acer Aspire One 11.6. Basically, we're talking about a larger screen, but there's more to this update than just that. What's new? Well, let's check it out, shall we?

The larger 11.6-inch, 16:9 screen comes together with the new Z500 series 1.6GHz Intel Atom CPU, and gets its 1366x768 resolution in motion with the help of a GMA500 integrated graphics adapter. Take those, and add a full-sized keyboard that sports flat keys to get a much better Acer Aspire One.

Since I mentioned the GMA500, you should also know that this chip is able to decode a bunch of video codecs, including H.264, and since the new platform only has a thermal power peak of 4.3W, the standard battery will last around 4 hours, with the larger battery going twice as long!

Unfortunately, there's no info available on the release date, locations to have this black beauty available, and not even pricing.
