Acer First in Line with Ion 2 Netbook


Intel's Pine Trail platform has already hit the netbook scene, so where's the next-gen Nvidia Ion graphics? Glad you asked, says Acer, the first company to show off a netbook outfitted with Nvidia's Ion 2 chipset.

Looking to set a "netbook trend in the digital world," Acer's just-announced Aspire One 532G sports all kind of higher-end goodies, at least in the realm of netbooks. The 10.1-inch unit comes with an Intel Atom N450 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 320GB hard drive, and Nvidia's Ion 2 with 512MB of dedicated memory to give the integrated GMA3150 graphics a boost when needed.

"Enjoy smoooth and flawless 3D computing, mainstream PC gaming, boost the performance of editing and converting videos, face-tagging photos, and hi-def video playback up to 1080p via HDMI-output to HDTV," Acer explains.

Acer also wants to put to rest any concerns of sub-par battery life, claiming you can expect up to 10 hours of run time.

The Aspire one 532G will start shipping at the end of the quarter and come in Sapphire Blue, Ruby Red, and Pearl Silver.
