10-inch Aspire One in US

Acer announced on Monday that its 10.1-inch Aspire One AOD150 netbook is now available to US customers, with prices starting at $350. The netbook will be sold alongside the existing 8.9-inch Aspire One, which has recently been discounted to $329 and is expected to be phased out sometime in the second quarter of the year. Specs of the newly-released PC include a 1.6GHz Intel Atom CPU, 1GB of RAM, and a 160GB hard drive preloaded with Windows XP Home.

Otherwise, the 10.1-inch LCD has a 1024x600 resolution and graphics processing is handled by the integrated Intel GMA 950 processor. The netbook also includes Wi-Fi, a significantly longer-lasting 6-cell battery, a webcam, two speakers, a mult-format card reader and three USB ports while keeping the total system weight under 3 pounds.

Eventually available in red, blue or black, the 10-inch Aspire One is available for pre-order online at Amazon and J&R.
