The first generation of netbooks was little more than overpriced toys that gave us a glimpse into the future of this burgeoning wireless market. Tiny screens, even smaller solid-state storage, and an overall cheap appearance initially kept many users in check.
Then came a second wave of these mobile computing solutions that brought larger (mostly 10-inch) screens together with traditional rotating hard drives that significantly increased storage capacity, an almost exclusive takeover of Intel's mobile Atom processor, and more solid, not childish-looking designs .
Today we're looking at a third generation netbook, the Acer Aspire One 751h. This new model from Acer has, among other things, a larger screen with an HD resolution of 11.6 inches and a full-size keyboard. A more generous 6 cell battery in combination with a somewhat slower clocked Atom processor also promises a longer battery life.
The retail offer includes the Aspire One 751h 11.6 "netbook, power cord, power adapter, 57.7 W 5200 mAh 6-cell Li-Ion battery, user manual, quick start guide and 1 year warranty information. However, Acer will offer the Sapphire Blue model It is also available in Seashell White, Ruby Red or Diamond Black.
The new Aspire One is specially equipped with an Intel Atom Z520 CPU with 1.33 GHz, 1 GB DDR2 667 SDRAM, a 160 GB hard drive, an 11.6 "WXGA (1366 x 768) TFT display and the integrated GMA 500 Graphics powered by Intel's solution. It measures 11.18 "x 7.79" x 1 "with a total weight of 2.97 pounds with the 6-cell battery – just 0.67 pounds over the original.
