Acer Aspire 103 Official

Acer on Friday marked the UK launch of the 10-inch Aspire One, its first direct push into the larger netbook market. Aside from the larger but same-resolution (1024x600) display, the new model has a reworked visual design with a brushed metal palm rest and other slightly more upscale touches. The system also skews towards the high end of netbook specifications with options for 3G and WiMAX access and a 6-cell battery pack that Acer claims lasts for up to 7 hours on a charge.

The Intel Atom-based system isn't given full specifications with its launch but carries a 160GB hard drive and Windows XP Home as well as expansion for up to 2GB of memory. Previous leaks have pointed to 1.6GHz or 1.86GHz processors being standard alongside 1GB of memory.

Pricing and the existence of multiple trim levels isn't known, though the same leaks suggest the base 10-inch Aspire One will cost $399 when it ships to the US in February.
