Acer Aspire One 571

A new version of Acer's Aspire One netbook has emerged, according to reports. Dubbed the 571, the machine is said to be based on the chassis of a D150 or D250, also using most of the same internal specifications. Its 10.1-inch display is said to have been upgraded to support 1280x720, though, in a 16:9 widescreen ratio. Aiding the encoding and decoding of HD and H.264 video is a Quartics coprocessor.

The 571 also includes an unusual optical drive, not dedicated to DVD or Blu-ray media. It instead handles Vmedia discs, which are more compact but hold only 1GB of data, said to be enough to store a single 576p-quality movie. No regions or release dates for the netbook have been announced, nor have any potential prices.
