Slim Aspire One at FCC

A slimmed-down version of Acer's Aspire One netbook was spotted late last month, and now the FCC has passed the netbook through its testing, according to a filing. While the netbook remains unnamed, some FCC documentation is referring to it as the Acer Aspire One 530, though this could just be referring to a possible use of Intel's 1.6GHz Atom Z530 CPU instead of the usual N270 or N280 as it goes against Acer's usual naming conventions.

Elsewhere in the FCC paperwork, the ZG8 designation comes up, though this gives no hints as to the hardware in the slim netbook and could indeed be related to the name of the netbook. What the images do reveal is a multi-touchpad, a 3G SIM card slot, Ethernet, VGA output and three USB ports. No solid state drives are expected, with storage coming in the form of 2.5- or 1.8-inch hard drives in various capacities.

The model is based on the 10.2-inch Aspire One D150, which has recently began shipping, and is expected to include 1GB of RAM and Wi-Fi. There is still no word on pricing or release information for the new netbook. [via NotebookItalia]
