Acer is in the process of launching a new kind of netbook. This is quite a bit different from previous models as it has a longer battery life. This netbook has a slimline casing, an 11.6″ 16:9 display, and a 1366×768 resolution. The netbook has an Intel Atom z530 processor and a Poulsbo chipset. The graphics are GMA500.
Other features include ethernet and a VGA port. The Aspire One netbook has about an 8 hour advanced battery runtime. The standard battery itself hits about 4 hours. This is believed to be the netbook that recently passed through an FCC test.
