Acer has officially launched two new models in the UK, the Acer Aspire One 751 and the Acer Aspire One D250. We’ve already seen plenty of information about the D250, but the  Acer Aspire One 751 has remained a bit more of an enigma. Aside from an early look from PC World Norway, not much has been written about this model… until now.

Pocket Lint’s Chris Hall got a chance to check one out in London. The Acer aspire One 751  has 160GB hard drive, 1GB of RAM, 802.11b/g WiFi, Bluetooth, and 3G options. In other words, it wouldn’t look that much different from every other laptop on paper if it weren’t for a few things:

  • It has an 11.6 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display
  • It packs a 1.33GHz Intel Atom Z520 CPU and Mobile Intel US15W Express chipset

The computer also packs what appears to be a good keyboard with decent sized, well-spaced keys. The Aspire One 751 also ships with a 6 cell, 5200mAh battery, which Acer says could provide up to 8 hours of battery life.

The laptop is set to go on sale in the UK this month for about £349, which is the equivalent of $521 US.

    1. 11.2″ x 7.8″ x 1″ and 2.76 lb with 3 cell and 2.98 lb with 6 cell.
      This is my calculations from the metric units on Slashgear’s translation of Acer’s German web page:
      So for camparison, it’s about an 0.9″ wider than the Sammy, 0.5″ deeper, maybe a bit thinner, and (6 cell model) 1.6 oz heavier. I don’t know the width of the 11.6″ screen, but I’m guessing that, because of the aspect ratio difference, it’s probably wider than the nominal 12″ screen on a Lenovo x61s (~9.7″).

  1. That comes out to about 135 dots-per-inch – –
    a bit easier on the eyes than the HP-2133’s 168 dots-per-inch.

    1. You can never have enough ppi. All things small can be scaled and will look better and sharper afterwards. The 17″ MacBook is 133 ppi, and the HD 2140 and HD Dell Netbook are 155ppi. My 30″ WQXGA display is 100ppi, so I would have to imagine the same amount of pixels on 20″.
      Hmm. Maybe it is small…

      1. My new notebook is 143ppi. For the size of the screen it is, it’s just about right. A smaller netbook I could handle probably a little higher.

        I really wish they’d release some higher resolution displays for these damn computers on a regular basis.

        Also, what is up with shared home/end and pgup/pgdn on this machine? If it wasn’t for that, I’d buy one as soon as it was available. (Something like how the 1004DN handles them seems acceptable for me…)

        1. You can re-map the keys fairly easily – any OS.
          I didn’t notice that myself – it would drive my crazy (until I re-mapped them). 😉

          1. Remap to what? How?

            It’s a meta key. It should just work. Optimally, they’d have their own keys arranged like on a desktop keyboard, but we’ve yet to see anything like a Dell or Lenovo notebook with these discrete layout modified for a 11 or 12″ notebook.

            It’s doubtful these could be mapped to fn+arrows, but there is also no right fn key like there is on the 1004DN.

            Basically, it’s not like switching to dvorak (which I do use), but rather, it’s a key that should have good placement. And pgup/pgdown being put left to right and shared with home/end is a really bad decision.
