    Here are some of the first pictures of Acer Aspire E1-421, which caught the eye of a shopper in Asia. Its most distinctive feature is AMD E1-1200APU "Brazos 2.0", driving the machine. The dual-core APU is clocked at 1.40 GHz, and packs Radeon HD 7310 graphics. Other vital components include 2 GB of DDR3 memory, and 320 GB HDD storage. A DVD SuperMulti drive handles removable storage. The notebook's 14-inch screen packs 1366x768 pixels resolution, the GPU utilizes 256 MB from the system memory. 802.11 b/g/n WLAN, and a 6-cell battery make for the rest of it.

    "The Ture Spirit of Excellence" That's a promising start...

    Also, is it just me or that screen looks weird? It looks like 5:4 ratio... could be just strangely taken photo...

    And the last question, any idea how this E1 stacks up against higher clocked E-450 and how does HD7310 compare against HD6320?

    It should be a rebrand with faster clocks. It is next year when the moon falls in the ocean... :laugh:

    the screen looks weird, it seem it has all the nylon protector thing unremoved.
    I personally want something with more performance than the E450, if the E1 reaches Athlon P320 performance levels then it would be interesting.

    Actually E-450 isn't that slow. I mean in synthetic benches, yes, but in real world usage i can't really see anything wrong with it. And the battery seems to last forever with it as well.
