Even as a supporter and regular user of netbooks, to me there has to be a size limit when it comes to the display. Previously, we thought that was 10-inches, however we have seen others such as Dell and Gateway sneak past with some larger models and now Acer has unveiled the Aspire One with an 11.6-inch display. So, netbook or small notebook, either way, the new Aspire One seems like a worthy addition to the existing Aspire One lineup.
The new addition to the Aspire One family begins with an LED backlit 11.6-inch display with a WXGA resolution and is powered by a (yet unspecified) Intel Atom processor. Other features of the Aspire One include a multi-touch trackpad, a 160GB hard drive, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g, Bluetooth, Dolby Pro Logic Sound as well as a built-in card reader and webcam. The
notebook netbook will even have the option for built-in 3G. As for power, that is said to be up to 8-hours which comes courtesy of a 6-cell 5200mAh battery.
The 11.6-inch Aspire One will be available in your choice of white, black, dark blue or red. However as of now, both the pricing and the availability date are still unannounced.
