As CES 2010 draws closer, netbook makers have been dropping hints about their upcoming netbooks in order to whet consumers’ appetites for new technology. Acer is the latest in the line of manufacturers to do so, today announcing the Acer Aspire One AO532h featuring an Intel Atom N450 CPU, 10.1″ screen, and up to 10 hours of battery life. The boost to the battery is due in part to the efficiency of the Intel Pinetrail chipset and the LED screen, but also to Acer’s new high density 6-cell battery.
The Aspire One AO532h has a multitouch-capable trackpad and 93% keyboard – a tad larger than average. You can get this thing for only $299 with the standard 6-cell, or with the high-density 6-cell for an additional fee.
