Big improvement on the original?

Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

Acer's eagerly anticipated 10in version of the popular Aspire One netbook has popped up in pictures on the web.

The shots will come as some relief to owners of 8.9in AA1s who've struggled to upgrade the mini-laptop's internals: one picture indicates the the wireless card, hard drive and memory are easily - or at least, more easily - accessible through hatches in the bottom of the new machine.

Easily accessible innards

The 10in AA1 offers only one SD card slot - with an anticipated 160GB hard drive, there's no need for the original machine's Storage Expansion facility - but its other specs are straight-down-the-line netbook: 1.6GHz Atom, 1GB DDR 2 memory, Wi-Fi, webcam, VGA port, Ethernet port and a trio of USB connectors.

Customary netbook port array

Acer is expected to chuck in Bluetooth too, and there's likely to be a 3G option as well.

The new model takes a lot of design cues from the original AA1, but we note that the sideways touchpad buttons are not among them, thank goodness.

The 10in AA1 - already confirmed by Acer - is expected to go on sale next month. ®
