Now that you know what Dell’s low-cost mini-laptop looks like, say hello to Acer’s entry, which will reportedly be called the Acer Aspire One. A couple of allegedly leaked photos of this laptop are making the rounds. And 3fire reports that the computer will feature:

  • CPU: 1.6GHz Intel Atom
  • RAM: 512MB RAM
  • Storage: 4GB SSD
  • Screen: 8.9 inch 1024 x 768 pixel display
  • Battery: 2200mAh, good for 2-3 hours

It’s starting to look like PC makers are using the low-powered Intel Atom CPU as an excuse to put lower capacity batteries in ultraportables. On the one hand, this means these computers will be lighter-weight, and lower capacity batteries are certainly cheaper than higher capacity ones. But I’d love to see a 3 or 4 cell 4000+ mAh battery come standard with one of these laptops and provide 4+ hours of battery life.

Anyway, as with all leaked images, take these photos and these specs with a grain of salt. But we’ll probably find out a lot more when Acer officially unveils its mini-notebook at Computex next week.
