The newer 11.6-inch Acer Aspire One has been spotted on several PC shops in MOA and Park Square 1. Arriving only last week, they’re now bigger, slimmer but a bit slower.
The Acer Aspire One AO751 now comes with an Atom Z520 1.33GHz CPU instead of the N280 we’ve been expecting. No idea why Acer would switch to this CPU though.
Specs: Acer Aspire One AO751h-25Yb
Intel Atom Z520, 1.33GHz
2GB DDR2 RAM
250GB SATA HDD
11.6″ WXGA LCD (1366×768 pixel)
Intel GMA 500 graphics
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
It’s now installed with Windows Vista Home instead of XP and is priced at Php27,500.
I’ve been asking the sales people to show me the WAN port (as indicated in the sticker of the netbook) but no one was able to do so. My guess is that it could be on another model that’s why they indicated it’s WAN-ready, a bit deceptive though IMO. The Z5xx processor is also a big concern knowing that it didn’t fare very well on the Sony Vaio P.
