It actually looks quite nice. If only it had an SSD or hybrid configuration like the new Wind. It's a shame that they removed the second SD slot. I thought it was a nice idea for cheaply/easily adding extra storage.

With an HDD it won't need the expansion slot. With a proper SSD, if that ever becomes an option, it would be redundant as well. For the people ending up with this device I just hope they have at least some battery life in it this time.

the white top/bottom with black interior looks slick. the others with a black bottom look kinda "fat" (illusion caused by 2-tone black bottom)

i remember reading awhile back that nearly all netbooks would be moving to 10" & HDD, so it looks like even less originality than before.

tried the 8.9' version yesterday. i am a 701 user wanting to upgrade to something new. when i tried my brothers aspire one, it felt a little strange. the keyboard was kind of whacky, was noticably heavier than the 701, slow boot up time (but this is just with the preinstalled windows image w/ acer tools, etc). not really my cup of tea so i will stick with the eee pc 900ha as a future upgrade. if what is mentioned is true regarding the same keyboard as the 8.9', cant really consider this new product.

Well, if they moved the mouse buttons down below the track pad....and maintain the great battery life with the 6-cell battery....then this might be an upgrade. Right now I'm quite happy with my AO six-cell XP machine (160 GB HDD) but I far prefer to use an external mouse in large part because of the side buttons. Losing the expansion slot on the left is no issue to me unless I was wanting to go all solid state instead of with a spinning HDD.

But what I REALLY want is 1024x800.

What I really want is ION.

They did move the mouse buttons

This one's going to be like MSI Wind in terms of keyboard and trackpad positioning imo.

And yet, the resolution is unchanged. So far, the 10" netbook selection seems targeted at people with vision problems. Can we at least get 1156x768 or something.. 600 tall just doesn't cut it.

MsG said...

They all expand their screen size in terms of width of the screen itself. But what does it matter when they stick to 1024 * 600? You don't see a single pixel more on a greater screen unless they have a higher DPI (and thus a higher resolution). So unless you can't see things clear enough on the smaller ones with 1024 * 600 I don't see any reason to go for a netbook with greater screen. I hope they will have a higher resolution soon.

i wish the resolution was higher as well, but luckily pretty soon the netbook market wont be neutered by MS & Intel anymore. with Intel already in the works to lift their restrictions & soon with MS's release of Windows 7.

Don't understand why companies are coming out with 2nd generation netbooks and keeping the horrid keyboards from the first gen. C'mon, fix the right shift key fer crisake...

Only Windows?... It's really disappointment. I hoped a linux version :'( .
I'm still looking for a very cheap 10 inch Linux Netbook, someone can help me?

Does anyone know if the body of this computer is bigger than the 8.9" Aspire One, or is just the screen bigger?

I ve been reseraching a netbook to buy for some weeks now. Judging by the reviews there is only one 10 inch netbook worth considering. The Samsung NC10. High build quality, 6 Cell battery as standard, Windows XP home and all the standard features matching the other netbooks. I have had a trial with the NC10 in PC World and it is a neat and easy to use piece of kit...I dont think the new Acer will be worrying Samsung...however you will be if you dont buy the NC10....go out and buy your Samsung NC10 now....comes in black/blue and white. For style go for the Black gloss !!.

Cheapest Linux out there. Check Maplin.co.uk. they were being popped out for 139.99...might do you a job. Only 7in screen though !!.

The samsung has the silver nano coated keys. If you want to screw up your internal organs that's the way to go. Nano technology is not considered safe by many respected scientists. A net book that should have a health hazard warning on it. Who needs it?
