But that doesn't mean getting work done on the road shouldn't be comfortable. Acer's bigger screen continues to push netbooks toward notebook territory, but the stripped-down specs ensure that lower price tags will remain.
The specs on the new Aspire One are in line with what has become typical for the netbook market. An Intel Atom processor is par for the course—in this case, it's the N270. A Mobile Intel 945GSE Express chipset also comes standard on the Aspire One.
Like other netbooks, the Aspire One is still designed for ultramobility, constant uptime and cloud computing applications. To that end, the netbook comes with 802.11b/g Wi-Fi support as part of the standard package. A six-cell Li-ion battery provides six hours of constant computing, doubling the battery life of the previous version.
The 10.1-inch Aspire has a WSVGA LED backlit display with 1,024 x 600 resolution. It also includes an integrated Crystal Eye Webcam, allowing for live video streams and video chats. To make images and graphics clear, an integrated Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 is part of the package.
Overall, the Acer Aspire One weighs 2.95 pounds and is available in four colors: seashell white, sapphire blue, ruby red and diamond black.
The Acer Aspire One AOD150 carries a suggested starting price of $349.99 and is available now. Its 8.9-inch predecessor had been priced at $329 after Acer dropped the price in August from $379.
