Well, that did not take long. Ever since we came to know about 10-inch version of the Acer Aspire One, we were very excited to hear more about it. Blogeee.net has posted few photos of the 10-inch Aspire One, which is now being called Aspire One 103. We did some analysis of the pictures and here is what we have to say: Acer did closely listened to the requests of people and almost all of them have been fulfilled in the Aspire One 103.
The new Aspire One 103 has left and right mouse buttons beneath the trackpad now although, the size of the trackpad still looks much smaller than the ASUS’ 10-inch netbooks like the 1000H. The keyboard has not gone much change as compared to the 8.9″ Aspire One, which already had a great keyboard.
The Aspire One 103 also makes the upgrading a lot easier than before. Now, you won’t have to take everything apart just to get access to the HDD or RAM. On the top-left, you can see the access door to the HDD. On the bottom-left, you can get access to the wireless card and on the bottom-right, you can find the RAM slot. We really appreciate that the Acer has made it easier for the users to change the HDDs. This will let the normal users to easily change the HDDs without sending them to the ACER service center.
The new Acer Aspire One will be powered by 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor. Nice, that they did not go for the Atom Silverthorne 1.33GHz which seems to be adopted by many companies. Another noticeable change is that the second SD slot is now gone on the Aspire one 103. The 8.9″ Aspire one used to have two SD card slots. This also indicates that there would not be an SSD version. Also, the RAM remains same at 1GB. The HDD capacity seems to be 160GB.
Stay tuned for more information on Acer Aspire 103!
