Acer is going to launch a 11.6-inch Aspire One netbook model, based on Intel’s Atom Z530 processor, according to a blog post on Macles.

Besides the Z530 at 1.6GHz, the upcoming Aspire One features the Intel SCH USW15S “Poulsbo” chipset with integrated GMA500 graphics and a full size keyboard. The display has a resolution of 1366×768 pixels and a 16:9 aspect ratio.

Macles reports the netbook has a battery life of 4 hours with the standard battery and 8 hours with the high capacity unit.

Many times you may have heard of many rumours that Acer is going to produce larger Netbooks or Laptops. But this time it’s not one of those rumours. Macles and Portable Money has confirmed the news of Acer being involved in developing Netbooks larger than 10’. Yesterday Macles has reported that Acer has started working on 11’ Netbooks and is going to release another model in the most advanced AA1 series. Though they previously have revealed models on 10.1" variants of their original AA1 series with new designs, Acer is ready with its new generation AA1.

An Atom Z530 processor is being considered to be the most significant change in the new series as previously they were using the Atom N270 / 280 processor with 945GSE chipset and GMA950 graphics combo. Acer is expecting more battery life with this Processor for their larger 11” screens.

Here are the Specs of the upcoming 11” Acer Netbook:

11.6” Screen accommodating 1366 x 768 Resolution (16:9)
Intel Atom Z530 Processor
Intel SCH USW15S Chipset

Though Acer has not yet revealed any release date or exact pricing details, but this new models are expected to hit the market very soon.
