www.liliputing.com reports “Most netbooks I see these days come with glossy displays, which look great indoors under most lighting conditions. But throw some direct sunlight on them, and the shiny screens effectively turn into mirrors. A handful of new netbook models including the Asus Eee PC 1001P and Samsung N210 are available with matte displays which don’t have this problem. And now it looks like we can add the Acer Aspire One 532 to that list — or at least one version of this notebook.”
Acer have unveiled their latest netbook called the Acer Aspire One 532G. The new Aspire One 532G is the first netbook to run the NVIDIA ION 2 chipset.
Feature wise, it has a 10.1 inch LED backlit display. It uses an Intel Atom N450 processor that runs at 1.66GHz which is complimented by the NVIDIA GT218 GPU that has 512MB of dedicated memory attached.
Battery life on the new Aspire One is also excellent and according to numbers is good for about 10 hours of usage on a single charge which we assume is low usage and not highend graphics usage.
The netbook’s GPU is only called upon when it is specifically used, ie, when graphic intensive changes need to happen on screen. When the NVIDIA GPU is not used the netbook switches back to a standard GMA 315 chip that requires less power consumption to run.
The new Aspire One is expected to launch at the end of next month, but currently the price is unknown.
“I look at lots of netbooks as any frequent reader knows and most of them are all the same. Today I am going to be looking at the Acer Aspire One 532h-2326 netbook that packs in the new Atom N450 Pine Trail processor. The new processor doesn’t really speed things up in the performance department, but it gives some very impressive battery life.”
“You also buy this netbook if what you are looking for is long battery life. I am very impressed to see such battery life in a netbook selling at such a bargain price. It’s really hard to go wrong here if average performance is something you can live with, but long run time is your priority.”
The Acer Aspire One D250 takes a standard netbook spec machine and adds the Android operating system into the mix.?You get an Intel Atom N270 1.6GHz processor, 1GB RAM and a 250GB hard drive, and Android deployed in the same way that Asus and Sony (to name two) have used Linux kernels in the past.
Connectivity comes in the form of an Ethernet socket and Wi-Fi b/g, with 3x USB 2.0 connections, VGA, headphone and mic sockets. A card reader sits in the edge so you can slot in an SD card, which will sit flush with the edge so you can leave it in all the time if that’s what you want to do.
The D250 itself measures 257 x 185 x 24mm and is lightweight at just over 1kg including the battery. The construction is predominantly plastic and whilst the base of the D250 feels solid enough, the screen feels decidedly flimsy, not helped by the elevated hinges.
The internal finish is reasonable enough when you lift the lid, with a brushed effect around the keyboard and trackpad that keeps things relatively clear of fingerprints. The glossy plastic bezel surrounding the 10.1-inch LED backlit display and housing the webcam unfortunately doesn’t get the same treatment.
Just ahead of CES Acer has announced its next generation netbook, the Aspire One AO532h, which features a new Intel Atom N450 processor, 10.1? display and claims 10 hours of battery life. The long battery life of the Aspire One AO532h is achieved in part thanks to the more efficient Intel Atom N450 processor and the use of an LED backlit screen. The new Acer netbook is a slim device with thickness under an inch and weighs in at 2.72 pounds with battery.
In addition to the standard netbook features the new Aspire One AO532h has a multi-gesture trackpad and a 93 percent size keyboard. The 93 percent keyboard is a bit larger than most netbooks on the market, 1%, which may not seem like much but in my experience even a little extra room on a keyboard is a good thing.
In order to achieve the claimed 10 hours of battery life you will need to purchase the Aspire One AO532h with the high density 6-cell battery instead of the standard 6-cell battery (8 hours) that is in the default model. Additionally users can choose from 3 colors; Onyx Blue, Garnet Red and Silver Matrix.
The Aspire One AO532h starts at $299 with the standard 6-cell battery.
Acer is preparing a new 10.1-inch netbook armed with an Intel Pineview processor. The Acer Aspire One 532 (AO532h) is listed on Acer’s driver pages and it seems that this model is already listed by some e-tailers where the specs were found.
The Aspire One 532 will come with a 10.1-inch high resolution (1280 x 720) display and will be powered by the upcoming 1.66GHz Intel Pineview N450 Atom processor and GMA 3150 graphics. It will also come with 1GB RAM, a 160GB/250GB HDD and Windows 7 Starter.
Other features include a 3-cell battery, 5-in-1 card reader, 0.3MP webcam and three USB ports. It will be available in four different colours (Blue, Red, Black and Silver) and prices look like they’ll start from €299. If that price is true, Acer could have a winner on their hands! Check out the evidence after the break.
Acer redefines mobile connectivity with the Aspire One, the revolutionary Netbook featuring a 10.1? display and fun, powerful computing features delivering an optimal on-the-go Internet experience. Browse the Internet, check email, share photos, webcam, check sport scores, listen to music and enjoy a variety of entertainment in a small compact design that you can take anywhere

Last month, Acer announced its dual OS booting netbook Aspire One D250 and now, it is officially available in India. New Acer Aspire One D250 boots in Android and Windows XP operating systems. Acer boasts of “instant on” Android boot and also switching between Windows XP and Android.
The new Aspire D250 has been available at electronic retail outlets since start of this month and is priced at Rs. 18,599.Acer AOD250 has special dual-boot feature that allows the netbook to boot in either Android or Windows XP. Acer boasts of the 18-second boot up and 3 second shut down. Apart from this instant on boot up, this netbook also features Acer-customized Firefox browser along with other pre-installed applications.
The innards feature 1.66GHz Intel Atom N280 processor with 512KB L2 cache and 667FSB paired with Intel Mobile 9456SE chipset. With integrated Intel GMA 950 graphics, this netbook has 1GB DDR2 RAM and 160GB HDD for storage.
The under Rs. 20K price may attract Indian users but we know not how many average users would be ready to check out Android yet. Acer Aspire One D250 does have 10-inch netbooks as competition from HP, Dell, Asus, MSI, Gigabyte, and others.
“The Acer Aspire One is a mobile netbook that is designed for surfing the web, doing emails and messenger as well as basic computing functions like writing letters and doing simple spreadsheets.

Acer is apparently keeping the current model name of the currently Windows XP netbooks the same when they move to Windows 7. PCWorld reports that Acer will launch the Acer Aspire One D250 with Windows 7 next week. The Aspire One D250 Windows 7 netbook has a 10.1-inch screen with 1,280 pixels by 720px resolution, 1.66GHz Intel Atom N280 CPU and a 160GB HDD. The battery life is only 3.5 hours, but there is supposed a better battery available as accessory. Looking at the Acer D250 netbooks offered on Amazon you find the new Acer AOD250-1613 netbook on pre-order that offers to either boot Android or Windows XP Home. I’d rather wait for the Windows 7 version.
