New Acer Aspire One A0721 11.6″ AMD netbook up for pre-order (in USA)

 

  • Display: 11.6? 1366 x 768
  • Processor: AMD Athlon II Neo K125 1.7GHz
  • Graphics: ATI Radeon HD 4225 graphics with 384MB dedicated video memory
  • Memory: 2GB of DDR3 RAM
  • HD: 250GB
  • Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
  • Battery: 6 cell, 4400mah (up to 5.5 hours)
  • Dimensions (3 pounds, 1? thick)

With 384MB dedicated video memory provided by ATI,  HD video is definitely no problem, even full-screen 1080p flash video (youtube, etc).  The new AMD processor is actually from the new thin-and-light category so it’s much faster than the usual Atom processors we’re used to.  It even has DDR3 ram !

The only week point for this netbook might be the battery life, even though it’s listed at up to 5.5 hours with full-screen HD video playing we’d be surprised to see anywhere close to 4.

The netbook is currently listed as out of stock but should start shipping shortly, and if you’re looking for something a little faster than your normal netbook with full HD video support you won’t be disappointed with the Aspire One 721 at $429 on Amazon.com with free shipping.
