Acer AS1410 brings CULV to Aspire line

Acer on Tuesday chose to grow its use of Intel's CULV processors beyond the Timeline series and in one of its first Aspire updates. The Aspire 1410 is one of the least expensive CULV systems of any kind and will reach $400 thanks to its use of a 1.2GHz, single-core Celeron. Picking the processor still gives the 11.6-inch system six hours of battery life, a one-inch thick chassis and a weight just under 3.1 pounds.

The new Aspire also trims some of its costs by using specs slightly above that of a netbook, with 2GB of RAM, 802.11n Wi-Fi and Windows 7 Home Premium the key differences. A 160GB hard drive is shared with its slower counterparts. Acer doesn't disclose when the 1410 will ship other than to say it will arrive before the holidays.
