Netbooks are starting to look just a little redundant these days, at least when compared to new machines like Acer's Aspire AS1410. Announced earlier today, this little 11.6" ultraportable squeezes some surprisingly decent Intel consumer-ultra-low-voltage parts into a sub-$400 system. It comes with Windows 7 Home Premium x64 as standard, too.
Within its one-inch-thick, 3.08-pound chassis, the Aspire AS1410 packs in a 1.2GHz dual-core Celeron SU2300 processor, Intel GMA 4500MHD graphics with HDMI output, 2GB of memory, a 160GB 5,400-RPM hard drive, 802.11n Wi-Fi, and a six-cell battery rated for up to six hours of run time.
The display has a 1366x768 resolution, and Acer provides a "full-sized" keyboard as well as a multi-touch touchpad. Folks can scroll, zoom, and flip through documents by "pinching, flicking and swirling their fingers across the touchpad."
You can expect to find the Aspire AS1410 in stores across the United States some time this holiday season, Acer says. Check out the gallery below for a teaser image.
