Acer's first 'Pine Trail' netbook: details emerge

Vendor acknowledgement

Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

Acer's first netbook based on Intel's next-gen Atom processor has peered out of the shadows.

The manufacturer has yet to announce the Aspire One 532h, but the machine has been added to the company's support site, albeit with nothing more than a single Bios update, dated 8 December 2009, to show for itself.

Googling the machine's model number calls up a Lithuanian reseller who lists the machine as sporting an Intel Atom N450, integrated GMA 3150 graphics and a 10in, 1280 x 720 LED-backlit display.

The price is quoted as 1138.83 Litas, which is the equivalent of £297/$483/€328 at the current exchange rate.

The N450 is, of course, the first 'Pineview' processor, clocked to 1.66GHz and containing 512KB of L2 cache. It also contains a DDR 2 memory controller and said graphics core which has been moved out of the chipset and into the CPU package.

Pineview's specs are well known, as is its launch date: 10 January 2010.

But it's interesting that the 532h has a 1280 x 720 display, which netbook makers are now allowed to do provided they don't install Windows XP. The 532h will undoubtedly come with Windows 7 Starter Edition. ®
