New Details Released on Acer's 10-Inch Aspire


Acer, who made good on its promise to outship the competition in the netbook market despite only offering a single netbook model, will soon add to its Aspire One line with a new D150 series.

Engadget reports the Aspire One D150-0B will first debut in France in early February, with the D150-1B slated for a March release. Both models are expected to ship with the Intel Atom N270 (1.6GHz) CPU, 1GB of RAM, a 160GB hard drive, and a 10.1-inch 1024x600 display. The only difference between the two is that the 0B ships with a 3-cell battery, versus a 6-cell battery on the 1B, Endgadget says.

Also in March, a D150-2BG model will make its debut. Specs include an Intel Atom N280 (1.66GHz) CPU, integrated 3G quandband UMTS/HSDPA mobile broadband, and a 6-cell battery.

The Aspire One D150-0B, D150-1B, and D150-2B are expected to sell for €329 ($425), €349 ($450), and €449 ($575) respectively. Prices will likely be lower in the U.S., but no word yet on U.S. availability.
