Acer Aspire One WiMAX netbook coming in 2009

While Acer had two new laptops on show for the Sprint XOHM launch yesterday, what could be argued is their most interesting device to support WiMAX was hidden from sight.  Laptop Mag grabbed some hands-on time with an Acer Aspire One WiMAX netbook prototype that had been lurking in a nearby Intel van; they weren't sure if it was a proof-of-concept or an upcoming product, but SlashGear can confirm that Acer will be offering a WiMAX option on the Aspire One starting in early 2009.

DIY Acer Aspire One UMPC

DIY Acer Aspire One UMPC

ToDo forum member stretracer18 loved his Acer Aspire One netbook, but wanted a touchscreen slate version instead; Acer not being forthcoming with such a UMPC, he created his own.  Now we've seen touchscreen modifications of netbooks before, but this is a full case reworking: the top and bottom sections of the Aspire One have been screwed together minus the keyboard in-between, with the lid flipped round to give access to the display (with touchscreen panel) and webcam.

The Acer Aspire One is among the most searched for netbooks here on SlashGear, so we were keen to get the 8.9-inch budget ultraportable in to see whether all the fuss is warranted.  Based on Intel's 1.6GHz Atom N270 processor, our review model has 512MB of RAM, an 8GB SSD, WiFi b/g and runs Linux.  We'll be putting it through its paces over the coming week, but until then enjoy the unboxing video!

As promised, Acer's Aspire One budget ultraportable is now officially available in the US.  The notebook, intended to rival ASUS' wildly popular Eee PC, uses Intel's 1.6GHz Atom CPU, an 8GB SSD (or 120GB standard HDD) for storage and runs the Linpus Lite Linux OS (with Windows XP Home as an option).  It weighs 2.17 pounds and measures 9.8 x 6.7 x 1.14-inches, and will be available at first in sapphire blue or seashell white before golden brown and diamond black arrive later in the year.

It would help if you could understand Italian, but this video from PC Professionale speaks the universal language of "break out the screwdrivers" as it dismantles Acer's new Aspire One budget ultraportable.  There's good news and bad in terms of upgrade potential; looks like networking and connectivity are most flexible, with storage lagging behind.

Acer's entrant to the budget ultraportable fray, the Aspire One which we first saw last week, has been made official.  As expected, the notebook is based on Intel's 1.6GHz Atom processor, has an 8.9-inch display (though 1024 x 600 rather than 1024 x 768 as was predicted) and comes as standard with a Linux OS (Linupus Lite) with Windows XP an option.  Storage is courtesy of an 8GB SSD, with 512MB of RAM and a memory card reader.

Feel free to groan and say "not another one"; photos purporting to be Acer's challenge to the Eee/Wind/2133/etc range of budget ultraportables have shown up, together with some basic spec details.  Believed to be called the Aspire One, the notebook has an 8.9-inch, 1024 X 768 display.  It also, apparently, runs Windows XP SP3 and is estimated to come in at €299.
