The Acer Aspire One is confirmed!

Acer doesn’t want to be left behind the UMPC wars either. The Acer Aspire One was introduced during the Computex at Taipei, Taiwan yesterday.

This one now has those much awaited Intel Atom CPUs.

Yugatech 728x90 Reno7 Series
  • 8.9-inch 1024 x 600 LED-backlit display
  • 1.6GHz Atom N270
  • 512MB DDR2 SDRAM (expandable to 1GB)
  • 1.3 megapixel camera, SDHC and multi-format media readers
  • 802.11b/g, Ethernet, three USB 2.0, VGA, and 3.5mm audio out
  • One free mini PCI slot for WWAN
  • 80GB hard drive (with XP) or 8GB solid state (with Linux)
  • 2.5 to 5 hours between the 3 and 6-cell batteries in XP model, 3 or 7 hours on Linux
  • 1kg (2.2 pounds)

Acer Aspire One Netbook

Looks like the 8.9″ UMPCs hit the sweet spot for a 1024 x 600 pixel screen resolution. No more horizontal scrolling. This model will lug it out with the EeePC 900, HP Mini Note, MSI Wind PC and the ECS G10IL.

Unofficial price starts at Php17,500 but will sure be between Php20-Php25k once it hits the Philippines later this year.

    i cant see a mini-PCI slot on the AO. it says in the specification, the slots are for dedicated SD and multi in one card reader. is the multi in one card reader serves also as mini-PCI slot? thanks.

    Hello. I actually sms-ed you last week to ask whether this one’s better than eeepc.

    linpus has skype pre-installed in distro.

    trash the ssd to put a spinning thing with tech from the 1980s into it? nah. I’ll pass.

    Did everyone throw away their desktops in the Philippines? I have never seen a HD dependancy like you have here. A 5 year old desktop is likely to have 80 gigs+ on it. Why bother maxing out a 32 ounce device that you hold in your palm? Just sync w/ desktop. done.

    MODDING the Aspire ONE!

    Trash that SSD and have it HDDed!

    Supply Aspire ONE with bluetooth!

    and finally..

    Touch it!

    hopefully they’d figure out how to put glowing leds / lightings under it.
