Although it was bound to be released in February, but ACER has released the big baby early.
At a little more than one kilo (1.18 kg), the new 10” Aspire One combines style, great features and a new form factor to provide the best combination of ultra-portability and maximum screen size for navigation and data input.
Designed for an optimal web browsing experience and Internet productivity, the 10” Aspire One includes a 10.1” WSVGA LED backlit display with a resolution of 1024×600 pixels that offers a broader vision for more convenient navigation. Integrated on top of the screen is the unique Acer Crystal Eye webcam optimized for poorly lit environments, a tiny window, tastefully encircled by a mirror rim, that keeps you connected to the world though live video streaming, video chats and conferences.
The 10” Aspire One comes with 802.11b/g WiFi and Acer Signal Up technology built-in as standard for easy access to available wireless networks. In addition is equipped with Bluetooth and can also be specified with a choice of embedded WiMAX or 3G wireless technologies for unlimited connectivity.
One nice improvement is the easy of expandability of RAM. In the 8.9″ model, it was not-so-easy for the end user to change the RAM, which actually required to remove the keyboard. In the current 10″ model, just unscrew a couple of screws to change the RAM. One more interesting feature is the inclusion of multiple format card reader. This is a nice addition when considering the fact that all the netbooks in the market come with just a SD card slot.
The screen resolution has not undergone any change. It is still WXGA (1024 x 600). Price is not known yet.
