Philippine retailer PC Corner has set up a product page for the new 10 inch version of the Acer Aspire One. According to PC Corner, the netbook will be called the Acer Aspire 103, and in addition to the larger 10 inch display, it will have an Intel Atom N280 CPU with the GN40 chipset instead of the more common Intel Atom N270 CPU with the 945GSE chipset.
I’ve seen reports about the new name and the new chipset before, but I’ve held off on reporting on them because I was under the impression that the new Intel Atom N280 CPU wouldn’ t be available for a few months, while I expect the new Acer Aspire One netbooks to hit the shelves sometime in February. But either one of those things is not true or PC Corner got the information for its product listing from various internet sources and not from Acer.
The store gives the netbook a starting price of PhP 25,995 or about $548 US. That’s about twice as much as the retailer is charging for the cheapest 8.9 inch version of the Acer Aspire One.
