Acer has released a new version fo the Aspire One laptop, this time with a solid black color and a 16GB SSD. A few weeks ago a black version of the Acer Aspire One A150 started to show up, but that model has a 160GB hard drive instead of a solid state disk. Aside from the solid state memory, the other thing that sets the new Acer Aspire One A110X apart from the A150 is the fact that it only appears to be available in Germany at the moment, where it’s selling for about 399 Euros.
The A110X has a 1.6GHz Intel Atom CPU, a 8.9 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, 1GB of RAM, a 16GB SSD, an SD card reader plus a multi-card reader, and a 6 cell battery. It also sports a webcam, 802.11b/g WiFi, and runs Windows XP Home.
Earlier Acer Aspire One models with solid state disks came with Linpus Linux Lite preloaded, and many users reported that the SSDs weren’t fast enough to handle Windows XP. Does this mean that the A110X will have faster SSDs? The relatively high price for this unit might provide a clue. But who knows? Maybe black paint is at a premium in Germany these days.
