Acer Announces Pricing, Availability for 11.6-inch Aspire One AO751h

We've already brought your our initial hands-on impressions of the world's first 11.6-inch netbook, but now Acer has made the pricing and final specs official for its 2.8-pound Aspire One A0751h (starting at $349). The leading netbook maker has also announced pricing for its thinner and lighter 10-incher, the 2.4-pound Aspire One A0D250 (starting at $298). So what's the big deal about another inch of screen? According to Acer, users will appreciate the extra real estate and extra pixels (1366 x 768) for having multiple windows open simultaneously and for surfing the Web with less scrolling. The other important benefit is that the A0751h has a full-size keyboard. A configuration with a 6-cell battery (good enough for 8 hours of battery life) will sell for $379. That's a good price given the system's relatively large screen size--and that it's only an inch thin. Read on for more details and full specs for both machines.

Features that apply to both the 11-inch and 10-inch model include your choice of colors (Diamond Black, Ruby Red, Sapphire Blue, and Seashell White), a multi-gesture touchpad, Crystal Eye webcam, and a soft-touch palm rest for a more comfy typing experience. Stay tuned for full reviews of both netbooks.
