Acer introduces new Aspire One models

By on May 18, 2009, 10:19 AM
Acer America has introduced two new netbooks today, the Aspire One AO751h being an industry-first to offer an 11.6 screen and the Aspire One AOD250 an update of their previously offered 10.1 model; both offer a thinner, lighter design. Having shipped 1.8 million units in the first quarter of this year, the company holds 30.5% of the global netbook market, more than any other.

Despite its sleek engineering, the A7O751h is expected to introduce a new level of productivity and efficiency with its larger display and full-sized keyboard. It will feature an 11.6 LED-backlit HD display with a native resolution of 1364 x 768 (16:9, naturally), Intel Atom Z520, Intel US15W chipset, 1GB DDR2 553MHz RAM, 160GB 5400RPM SATA HDD, web cam, multi-in-1 digital media card reader and dedicated SD card reader, 802.11b/g, three USB 2.0 ports, a 6-cell Li-ion battery and integrated speakers. It will ship with Windows XP SP3 and a one year warranty with a base price of $349.99. Models with the extended 6-cell battery will be $379.99.

As a rehash of the previous 10.1 Aspire One, the AOD250 is still targeted toward those seeking a run-of-the-mill netbook except they now weigh less and are more compact. It features a 10.1 LED back-lit TFT LCD screen with a 1024 x 600 resolution, an Intel Atom N270 processor and 945GSE chipset, 1GB DDR2 533MHz RAM, 160GB 5400RPM SATA HDD, web cam, multi-in-1 digital media card reader, 802.11b/g, three USB 2.0 ports, a 3-cell Li-ion battery and integrated speakers. It too comes with XP SP3 installed, a one year warranty and has an MSRP of $298.

Ha ha ha... Just my luck. I bought an Acer Aspire One 150 (the 8.9 inch, 120gig, 3 cell battery version) about two months ago. Naturally they decided to make a much better computer for the same price then. Oh well, Murphy and Moore's laws work together real well:"Everytime you buy a computer, a newer model will come out that is better than the one you just bought but at the same price; with the jelly side down"

Haha. Yes, that would appear to be the relative truth.
