After Dell's Mini Inspiron, it's Acer's turn to reveal an "Eee PC killer." We've been hearing little nuggets of information about the Acer sub-notebook since early March, but UMPCPortal now has photos and a name.
The pictures show a machine not unlike a cross between the Eee PC and HP's MiniNote, with an 8.9" display, a glossy black-and-white finish, and a touchpad with its buttons on either side. We can spot a pair of USB ports, audio ports, and one card reader on the left side, and UMPCPortal says the laptop will most likely include an Intel Atom processor.
Supposedly, Acer will brand the machine Aspire One. UMPCPortal quotes a €299 price tag, giving credence to the rumor that Acer will peg the Aspire One at $350-400 in the United States. Such pricing would make the laptop considerably cheaper than the 8.9" Eee PC 900, which currently goes for $549.99 on Newegg.
