    Besides the HD friendly Aspire One 571, Acer has launched two new netbooks - the first 11.6-inch Aspire One AO751h netbook to enter production and a new 10.1-inch Acer Aspire One AOD250 netbook. Starting with A0751h, it features a new 11.6-inch CrystalBrite HD LED backlit screen with 1364x768 resolution and full-sized keyboard, while still being thinner and lighter design than its predecessor. In the 10.1-inch Aspire One AOD250 you'll find nothing new, except for the new shell or maybe the better choice in colors which now includes Diamond Black, Ruby Red, Sapphire Blue and Seashell White for both models.
    The Acer Aspire One AO751h 11.6-inch netbook has a starting MSRP of $349.99. Models with extended 6-cell battery start at $379.99. The Acer Aspire One D250 10.1-inch netbook base configuration costs $298. Both netbooks are now available.

    damn. Why dont any of these have the ion chipset? It'd do wonders in terms of battery life (half the power usage and heat output quite literally and... I CAN PLAY CRYSIS -hides-).

    Why oh why does the LARGER model with BETTER resolution and therefore more PRACTICAL for everyday use have the slower processor? They should have used the Z530 or better

    QFT. That's exactly the same though I have. My mom owns one with the 1024x600 resolution, and while it's crystal clear, it just doesnt have enough vertical space at times. This is killing me...release a 1364x768 resolution, 1.6 GHz Atom netbook and I'll be all over it like a fat kid on cake.

    Because Acer like most major players always seem to compromise on stuff. Aka ya not gonna get the best when they can skimp on few bucks.
