    Acer's Taiwan president Scott Lin confirmed today that Acer plans to launch 10-inch Aspire One netbooks in February or March next year. Despite the bigger screen and most likely the bigger keyboard, the 10-inch Aspire One will probably have the same specifications as the 8.9-inch One on the market today, including the Intel Atom processor and Microsoft Windows XP Home OS. Unfortunately, all this information has to be confirmed.

    Good stuff. I've been fence sitting between a netbook and a traditional ultra-portable. If Acer can get their Aspire one up to 10.x inch then that will make a big difference. The existing screen is just too small. Let's hope they also get a big grade to the screen to the HD format 720p. 1280×720. That will make a big difference in desktop use, not just watching vids. 1024x600 is just too small for productivity applications. It's also smaller than laptops that are 8 years old. (1024x768). Pump it up Acer. :toast:
