10in Acer Aspire One Announced

Rumoured to be replacing 8.9in model.

We’ve heard rumours of a 10in Acer Aspire One and, for once, they’ve held true. Now official the system not only brings with it a larger screen size but also a refined design which, in my opinion at least, gives the system a much more professional look.

Specs are, unsurprisingly, par for the netbook course. A 1.6GHz Atom coupled with 1GB of RAM, a 1,024 x 600 resolution screen and a 160GB hard drive at the core of the 10in One. WiFi (notably not Draft-N), Bluetooth and optional WiMAX and 3G connectivity are all sported.

Perhaps a little over-enthusiastically, Acer claims that a 6-cell battery coupled with the “incredibly low power consumption (of) 10in Aspire One guarantees up to 7 hours battery life.” While we’d love to see a netbook accomplish such a feat, I can’t help but think that estimate might be just a little on the generous side.

Interestingly, according to DigiTimes’ Acer is planning to stop shipping the 8.9in Aspire One once the 10in model hits the streets. That makes a certain sense, as 10in netbooks have become much more popular than their smaller brethren. And, of course, it seems a bit odd to have more than one One.

Update – 15:27, 23/01/09: Acer tells us the 10in Aspire One will have an RRP of £299 and will be available from mid-February.
