Acer Updates Aspire One Lineup
Acer has rolled out a nice update to the Aspire One 521, the Aspire One 522. While the new name probably doesn’t shock you, hopefully the specs will. The 10-inch netbook features an AMD C-50 cpu running cool. In Acer’s efforts to keep consistent with their hardware refresh, they are also updating the Aspire One 721 model to 722 and will be shipping the 11.6″ netbook with a 1366 x 768 pixel resolution.
The 722 will feature the same 1Ghz processor as the new Aspire One 522 and will feature an AMD Radeon HD 6250 graphics chipset. The stereo speakers are likely to have remained the same since the previous model, although the battery does now have a higher capacity.
Okay, so maybe the specs aren’t that great, but is Acer going for a budget netbook? We do not currently have any information on what pricing to expect or when we can see these units hit the store shelves, but I am willing to bet Acer wasn’t going for anything too crazy. This netbook is likely to be an excellent alternative to getting an Eee PC and be able to compute without hurting your wallet. Check out the videos below for a closer look at this netbook!
