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.

According to CrunchGear the Lenovo’s version of VIAO-P will be called “Pocket Yoga” but there’s still no official announcement from Lenovo itself.  If you look at the pictures below we can see that the it can be flip backwards to make it a small tablet pc (no call it ultraportable tablet PC) this feature might be interesting not only you can type on it but use it like a notebook during class. Nice right?

Will Lenovo make their own VAIO P?

Not the Sony one of course, but Lenovo made a prototype of a Sony’s VAIO P look alike. If they will put better specs under the hood and sell it 40k-50k a pop, I guess people might grab one as a VAIO P alternative.
