When Acer announced their 11.6-inch Aspire One netbook last month, they were pretty loose on the ultraportable's full specifications.  Now the largest netbook the company offers has been listed on their German site, as the Acer Aspire One 751, confirming that Acer have used the Intel Atom Z520 processor paired with the US15W Express Chipset and up to 2GB of RAM.

 

That's slightly different from the original rumors - when the netbook was believed to be the Aspire One 731 - that pegged the CPU as Intel's Atom Z530.  Otherwise the specifications match what we've heard previously: an LED-backlit 200-nit display running at WXGA 1366 x 768 resolution, integrated WiFi b/g and optional Bluetooth 2.0+EDR and triband UMTS/HSPA WWAN.

Both 3-cell and 6-cell batteries are available, with runtime estimated at up to 8hrs with the latter.  Pocket-lint were on hand for a 751 launch event, and snapped these live photos of the netbook, which is set to hit the UK in May for around £349 ($518).
