Pocket-lint.com has some real-life photos of Acer’s impending 11.6-inch netbook, the Aspire One 751, which was shown off at an event in London yesterday. The netbook, as you’ll recall, will feature a respectable 1366×768 resolution and a six-cell battery that Acer claims is good for up to eight hours.
The 751 is due this month and I’ll admit that I have high hopes for it. I think Acer’s aggressive pricing, the unit’s 2.2-pound weight (presumably with a three-cell battery), and the sweet-spot that an 11.6-inch screen provides in terms of portability versus actually being able to get some real work done might make this model a true contender.
UK pricing “is suggested to be around £349,” according to Pocket-lint. That’s a little over $520 in US dollars, but I contend that the US price will likely be $499 or less. These new photos, too, look better than the original images, if you ask me.
