Last week we found out that Acer is planning to build a netbook with a 10.2 inch display. Right now you can only pick up an Acer Aspire One with an 8.9 inch screen, but that hasn’t stopped the Aspire One from becoming one of the most successful netbooks around. Now TG Daily reports there will be something else different about these next generation netbooks from Acer: They’ll run Windows Vista instead of Linux or Windows XP.
The new model will reportedly be part of a new N-series netbook line. And they’ll support hard drive capacities up to 320GB, which could help explain the price jump. TG Daily says the N-series mini-laptops will start at $500, which is as much as $200 higher than some existing Acer Aspire One models.
