Squint and you can just make out Acer’s upcoming Pine Trail netbook in the company’s driver pages, the Acer Aspire One 532, packing an Intel Atom N450 processor and a variety of SKUs. As well as the newer processor – which we’re expecting Intel to officially announce in January 2010 – the netbook also offers a choice of display resolutions, including the common 1024 x 600 and the far preferable 1280 x 720.
Graphics are courtesy of Intel’s GMA 3150 chipset and there are models with either 160GB or 250GB of storage; RAM seems pretty consistent at a measly 1GB. Otherwise it’s the usual array of mundane netbook specs: three USB 2.0 ports, 10/100 ethernet, VGA and audio in/out, together with a multiformat memory card reader, standard WiFi and optional Bluetooth.
Color choices will be blue, red, black and silver, and the AO532 is already being listed at some European merchants for around €299. Acer are apparently preparing to launch their new Pine Trail range on January 11th, so we’re guessing we’ll see more information then.
