This just in, straight from Acer: Acer announces the next generation of its acclaimed line of Aspire One netbooks. These new Aspire One AO532h netbooks are packed with powerful features and performance to boost productivity and battery life.
Designed for all day mobility and connectivity, the Aspire One AO532h netbooks feature the latest Intel® technology with the Intel Atom N450 processor, 10 hours of battery life, fast Wi-Fi connectivity, a 10.1-inch LED-backlit TFT LCD and a large keyboard with a Multi-Gesture touchpad. All this power and functionality comes in a package that is only 1-inch thin and weighs just over 2-1/2 pounds.
“These new Aspire One netbooks offer mobile users some of the features and performance of a larger notebook, while providing a highly portable, compact design that’s easy to take anywhere,” said Ray Sawall, senior manager of product marketing for Acer America. “Consumers can browse the Internet, check email, share photos, enjoy their entertainment applications, and even get work done wherever their travel takes them.”
Engineered for extreme mobility, the Aspire One utilizes the energy-efficient Intel® Atom(TM) N450 processor, integrated Intel graphics and the mobile Intel NM10 Express chipset to keep users connected while on-the-go. To further support power savings and longer battery life, the netbooks’ 10.1-inch LED-backlit TFT LCD saves 22.2 percent power compared with other netbook displays.
The new Aspire One netbook line offers many configurations to fit a wide range of users. Batteries are one component that have several options, including a high-density, six-cell Li-ion (5600 mAh) battery that delivers up to 10 hours of battery life or a 6-cell Li-ion (4400 mAh) for up to 8 hours battery life. Additionally, the batteries give a slight tilt to the netbook for a more comfortable typing experience.
The new Aspire One AO532h netbooks all come with ample memory, a large internal hard drive, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi and fast Ethernet LAN connectivity. They’re also equipped with a built-in webcam, a built-in digital microphone, and a 10.1-inch CrystalBrite(TM) LED-backlit display, offering a broader viewing area for Web page navigation and data input.[adsense]
They also utilize a Multi-Gesture Touchpad, allowing you to pinch, flick and swirl their fingers across the touchpad for intuitive navigation. It also allows you to scroll, zoom in and out, and flip through web pages, photos, spreadsheets and more. Additionally, a larger keyboard – 93 percent standard size – is more convenient for typing.Several of the new netbooks include Windows® 7 Starter Edition, combining the latest in reliability and responsiveness with the familiarity and compatibility of Windows. The Acer® Aspire One AO532h netbook will be available for U.S. customers at leading retailers this month, and come in three stylish colors: Onyx Blue, Garnet Red and Silver Matrix.
