Following in the footsteps of the Acer Aspire One 721 that made its rounds on the Internet (mostly in the Czech Republic), featuring new hardware under the hood, the new Acer Aspire One 522 recently found its way onto the Web, and is ready to show off its new AMD Ontario chip, from the Fusion family. The new notebook from Acer boasts the AMD dual-core C-50 Ontario chip, but shares many of the same aesthetics from the previously released Acer Aspire One AOD255.

As for the chip inside, each of the C-50's cores are clocked at 1GHz, but the power usage is measured at only 9W. The display measures in at 10.1-inches, and features a resolution of 1280x780. If you need better resolution, though, you can use the HDMI port to use an external display. The Aspire One 522 has a Radeon 6250 graphics processor under the hood, which supports UVD3 accelerated video decoding and DirectX 11. As far as battery life goes, it's rated at just 6 hours. You'll find only one speaker built-in, too.

Unfortunately, Acer doesn't have a word on when, or in what parts of the world the Aspire One 522 will launch. A price tag hasn't been attached to the new notebook, either.
