Acer Announces Aspire One AO532h Netbook with Atom N450

Just ahead of CES Acer has announced its next generation netbook, the Aspire One AO532h, which features a new Intel Atom N450 processor, 10.1″ display and claims 10 hours of battery life. The long battery life of the Aspire One AO532h is achieved in part thanks to the more efficient Intel Atom N450 processor and the use of an LED backlit screen. The new Acer netbook is a slim device with thickness under an inch and weighs in at 2.72 pounds with battery.Aspire One 532h open back cover

In addition to the standard netbook features the new Aspire One AO532h has a multi-gesture trackpad and a 93 percent size keyboard. The 93 percent keyboard is a bit larger than most netbooks on the market, 1%, which may not seem like much but in my experience even a little extra room on a keyboard is a good thing.

In order to achieve the claimed 10 hours of battery life you will need to purchase the Aspire One AO532h with the high density 6-cell battery instead of the standard 6-cell battery (8 hours) that is in the default model. Additionally users can choose from 3 colors; Onyx Blue, Garnet Red and Silver Matrix.

The Aspire One AO532h starts at $299 with the standard 6-cell battery.
