    Bringing affordability to the ultraportable notebook platform, Acer America today announced the new Acer Aspire AS1410 Series. These new notebooks integrate enough power for enjoying digital entertainment in a very sleek, stylish design for just $US399.

    “With the rising popularity of social networking, consumers are more connected than ever to the online world,” said Ray Sawall, senior manager of product marketing for Acer America. “When it comes to selecting a notebook, they’re increasingly concerned with size, weight and style. The AS1410 Series is small enough to be carried in a backpack or even a large purse but with enough power for spreadsheets and presentations. Aggressively priced, the AS1410 is an affordable mobile solution for checking Twitter updates, viewing YouTube videos and handling productivity applications on a plane, at school or a coffee house. Those in the market for a netbook should consider this notebook as an option, due to the step up in processing power.”

    Just one-inch-thin and 3.08 pounds, these systems are sleek and light, but with a full-size keyboard. The full-sized keyboard is comfortable and easy to type on, particularly for taking advantage of productivity applications. The compact size combined with a traditional keyboard comprises a convenient platform for frequent travelers and students. With the needs of mobile users in mind, the AS1410 Series is designed to suit an individual’s own personal flair with three elegant colour options – Diamond Black, Sapphire Blue and Ruby Red.

    Powerful Performance; Petite Package
    Although it’s the size of a netbook, the Aspire AS1410 Series is truly a mainstream notebook with the performance to suit a variety of users. Featuring an Intel Celeron processor and 2GB DDR2 memory (upgradeable to 4GB), the notebooks have plenty of power for document creation, media playback and daily task management.

    The systems are also outfitted with the new Windows 7 Home Premium operating system and up to a 250GB hard drive, which is large enough to store a vast library of music, images and spreadsheets. Offering plenty of productive time when away from a power outlet, a 6-cell Lithium Ion battery provides up to a whopping six hours of battery life, enough power to keep the PC charged on a coast to coast flight.

    The systems are also primed for visual clarity. The 11.6-inch widescreen HD LED-backlit display is large enough to comfortably view videos, photos, documents and web pages. Featuring LED backlit technology, a 16:9 aspect ratio and Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD, the AS1410 Series delivers realistic HD pictures with crisp detail and smooth video playback.

    Integrated speakers and Dolby Sound Room audio enhancement deliver lifelike sound for enjoying videos, movie downloads and music. A webcam and digital microphone make it fun and easy to get virtual face time with friends and family via live video streaming and video chat.

    Intuitive PC Navigation, Convenient Connectivity
    Affording easy, intuitive PC navigation, the new Aspire notebooks have a multi-gesture touchpad. Users can scroll, zoom in and out and quickly flip through web pages, photos, spreadsheets and more by pinching, flicking and swirling their fingers across the touchpad.

    Despite the compact form factor, the new notebooks offer a wide array of ports including an integrated multi-in-one media reader to conveniently transfer files from digital devices. An HDMI port allows the systems to support any PC or TV video format via a single cable, while three USB 2.0 ports enable connection to the latest peripherals and digital devices. Advanced Intel 802.11a/b/g/Draft-N Wireless and Gigabit Ethernet LAN enable fast access to email, the web and social networks.

    Nice. This will put a serious squeeze on Atom based netbooks. The screen is a much more friendly 11" with high resolution and a great little CPU (compared to Atom), 2GB memory, and full gesture trackpad. And at a netbook price... why by a netbook?

    But why does the photo "hide" the keyboard and trackpad? Keyboard not too nice (compared to Samsung or Sony pebble), and trackpad too small?

    The processor freq is too low. I doubt it perform well because my atom based netbook is very slow.

    It is a shy laptop lol

    What's the world coming to when people need $400 1.2ghz mini pc's to tote around in large purses so they can update their twitter whilst watching hitler lose his face on you tube?

    (i used to have the acer aspire one.. not bad if you only like doing basic things of course)

    1.2ghz will barely if at all stream any flash video am I wrong?

    I'm on a 1.5ghz amd 1800+ laptop now while my x58 is off to msi RMA and it load 80%+ just using pandora lol.
