Acer's Booth - Part 2

Acer's successful Aspire One netbook was likely one of the reason Acer's sales numbers had been so impressive for the past year or so. From its original single model, the company now has quite the lineup to build on its success. Thankfully, Acer is still some way from the uncountable Eee PC models.

Acer was also showing off the first Google Android netbook at Computex and we're looking forward to seeing how Acer can adapt this operating system and user interface to the slightly different usage patterns for a netbook.

The 1.12kg Aspire One Pro 531h is aimed at the business user, with the basic Intel Atom processor with 945GSE chipset. What may attract the business class is its 3G support and its relatively long battery life (rated at 7.5 hours).

The Aspire One 751h meanwhile is slightly heftier at 1.25kg, thanks to its 11.6-inch LED backlit widescreen display. The newer Atom Z520 processor with Intel US15W chipset is used. Acer rates it at around 8 hours of battery life.

It looks almost the same but this is not the Aspire Revo but the Veriton N260G. The innards are also different with its Atom N280 CPU and GN40 Express chipset. The graphics hence is the better GMA 4500M, with a HDMI port. Like the Revo, you can mount this small PC to the back of compatible monitors.

And here of course is the AspireRevo, which we have reviewed previously and is simply the Atom paired with the NVIDIA Ion.

This 23-inch beauty is a full HD display with a sleek, blue lacquer finish and illuminated control panel. Besides the eye candy, this is a display with a 2ms response time and 100000:1 contrast ratio.
