Acer Aspire One 722 notebook to pack AMD C-50 chip

Last year Acer introduced two mini-laptops with AMD processors, the Acer Aspire One 521 and Aspire One 721. The key difference was that the 721 had a larger 11.6 inch display while the 521 model featured 10.1 inch screen.

This year Acer updated the lineup with an Acer Aspire One 522 10 inch netbook featuring a new AMD C-50 processor. So it should come as no surprise that the company also plans to launch an Aspire One 722 with… you guessed it — a larger display and the same processor.

Macles reports that the Acer Aspire One 722 will have an 11.6 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display and a 1 GHz AMD C-50 dual core processor with Radeon HD 6250 graphics. The laptop will have stereo speakers and a higher capacity battery than the Aspire One 522, but in most respects it’s just a larger version of the same laptop.

The lid has also been tweaked to include a water-drop design.

There’s no word on when the Aspire One 722 will ship or how much the laptop will cost.
