12inch Acer Aspire One to Join The Rest Aspire One Brothers

Again Acer is planning to release an 11.6-inch Aspire One, with Atom z530 processor, GMA500 graphics core, and full sized keyboard and extended its battery life to 4 to 8 hours.

After the release of the 10inch Aspire One, I’m dissatisfied with its specs, it more on the old 8inch Aspire One with just bigger screen and new design. I wish this time Acer will upgrade some of its spec like the standard RAM and the CPU Speed.

    GREAT machine, with one exception, which i discovered on a trip recently when i went to use dial-up to connect to the www THERE IS NO MODEM! don’t know why i didn’t notice before, perhaps because specs above falsely state there is. anyway, must buy an external (very small) usb plug in 56K modem for circa $45, i insist on having dialup capability (hey, it ALWAYS WORKS, tho slow, and useful only for email. but when your dsl or t1 goes down, dialup ALWAYS WORKS)(did i say that it ALWAYS WORKS?) BUT GREAT MACHINE, all i wanted, cool, cool, cool. no flaws and well thought out, always a pleasure to experience good design and execution (except that the damn targus external cd/dvd is 1) at $149 half the cost of the computer, thus way too high, and 2) READ ONLY, ie no writing. but this is a netbook, you shouldn’t be copying CDs or DVDs on this machine anyway.) GREAT MACHINE!!!!!! BTW, they offer another acer aspire one with a 10.1″ screen now, careful comparing of specs and dimensions and viewing of pics reveal same keyboard just wider and taller case by about one-half inch in toto in each dimension to get (on the diagonal) 1″ more screen and to put touchpad buttons at bottom like some losers have been complaining about on this machine. slightly heavier (wouldn’t be noticable) and $20 more. exact same innards and specs (incl NO MODEM). make sure you buy the right size carry case, etc. but i like this one. SWEET. also, re the “form factor” of the 6 cell larger battery, it really adds a useful handle to the machine, and ain’t at all too big or protruding. i prefer it, esp considering the doubling of time you gain. GREAT MACHINE, soooo much nicer than the HP mini (and i am an HP fan). a home run, maybe with bases loaded – GRAND SLAM!

    I’ve spent 30 some years traveling for a living and also just for fun! Always took a laptop along for biz, and occasionally took a small Winbook on personal trips. I found the Acer Aspire One while looking for something else. My unit has the 3 cell battery which will only go approx 2 hours at best. But for travel it’s great! It’s light, sturdy and the XP software is faster than Vista. Startup time is just about a minute! I can’t say enough good things about this unit. Be prepared to buy a portable cd/dvd for down loadning movies, programs etc… I recently found a very compact Sony drive for $100. In this case my total expenditure was $450 for both.
    If your looking for a unit to take along on trips – this is it! No need to spend $800 to $1000 for HP or others – this one fills the bill!
