Acer to Launch AMD Ontario-powered Aspire One 722 Netbook

Pulkit Chandna

Netbooks were the tablets of the pre-iPad world, but now they are found more often in market research studies bearing out claims of their cannibalization by tablets than in the marketplace itself. Acer seems to have finally found the key to this endangered specie's comeback: a hypnotic ripple-like effect on the back. Jokes apart, the upcoming Acer Aspire One 722 netbook is reported to feature a “water drop” effect on its lid.

Seen for the first time in the D257 at this year's MWC, the lid's cool ripple-like effect has been created out of molded plastic. The  Aspire One 722 features AMD's C-50 APU with two CPU cores clocked at 1GHz and an integrated Radeon HD 6250 graphics core. It has an 11.6-inch display (1366x768) and a battery life of up to 7 hours. Price and release date haven't been revealed as yet.
