Just when we thought netbooks were dead, a new Acer pops up. The Acer Aspire One 756 with its 11.6 inch screen and the option of Intel Celeron 877 or Pentium 967/987 processors was just announced by the company. The chips don’t offer a miraculous performance, but should provide enough power for a device of this size and certainly more power than an Intel Atom processor. The Intel Celeron 877 with its two cores clocks in at 1.4 GHz, while the Pentium 967 with two cores hits 1.3 GHz. The other option, the Pentium 987 has an unknown frequency.
The display has a resolution of 1366 × 768 pixels and is controlled by the CPU’s native graphics solution. It comes with up to four gigabytes of RAM(with up to 8 GB of installable RAM available) and hard drives with 320 orGB of capacity. The netbook also offers Wi-Fi, a 2-in-1 card reader, a 720p webcam, Ethernet connection and optional Bluetooth 4.0. There are also at least two USB 2.0 ports, one VGA and one HDMI output. The Acer Aspire One 756 will be available in black, blue and red according to Acer. The device weighs 3 pounds and has a 4-cell battery.
The price and date of availability are still unknown.
