Update: Check out our full review here.

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 or 500 GB 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.

    I suppose anything is a step up for those awful atom processors. They must die.

    I love the atom processor because of the long battery life but I hate those 1024×600 resolution. I want at least a hd screen. (using Lenovo s10-3 from black friday $150)

    I have an old hp media center (like from 2008) – the chip is an amd turion 64 ml34 1.8 ghz; but we’re talking 2008; does anybody know how this celeron chip processor compares to that amd processor? I do use it for some movie stuff so want it to be at least a decent processor – thanks for info.
