New Acer Aspire specs

A Taiwanese report claims to have revealed information on a pair of new Acer notebooks. Unlike the high-end Gemstone Blue models, two upcoming Aspire and Slim Gemstone Aspire systems are said to be targeted aimed at a low-cost market, and sized at 8.9 and 12.1 inches respectively. These will rely on Intel's new Atom processor, and should use either Linux or Windows XP. Buyers will also have the option of either a conventional hard drive or SSD storage, representing a growing trend in ultra-compact computers. Pricing is expected to be between $300 and $450.

A launch of the new machines is anticipated for May or June. Sources at DigiTimes claim that Acer should ship 5 to 5.5 million units for the 8.9-inch system alone in the second half of 2008, out of a total of 6 to 6.5 million low-cost PCs.
