Thin Acer Aspire One netbook suggests SSD, Linux

New Acer Aspire One images

With just images to go on, a new leak obtained by SlashGear shows a new variant of Acer's 10-inch Aspire One netbook. The images show a chassis thinner than that of the recently outed D150 which sported a 160GB hard drive, suggesting less necessary space; the return of the SD memory expansion slot also implies it will be used to bolster reduced storage inside. Before Acer moved to 10-inch netbooks from 8.9-inch versions, it used such a slot to bolster the limited storage capacity for its SSD-equipped Aspire Ones.

This is also inline with a previous report suggesting the D150 will be offered with a solid state drive. The keyboard reveals a Windows key, which also confirms the earlier report that both SSD and hard drive versions of the D150 will be offered using the same OS. The images further indicate that the location of the VGA and Ethernet jacks have changed from previous versions of the netbook, hinting at a different motherboard layout.
