Update: Amazon giveth and Amazon taketh away. The product page has been removed. Either it was posted in error, or Amazon decided it didn’t want to take pre-orders for a product that might not ship until the holiday season or later… or never.
Well that’s interesting. Just last week I received confirmation from Acer that the company had “no plans” to launch the Acer Aspire One 532g netbook with next-generation NVIDIA ION graphics in the immediate future. While the company didn’t rule out a launch later this year, one thing I didn’t expect to see this week was a pre-order page for the mini-laptop at Amazon.
But lo and behold, Amazon is now taking pre-orders for the netbook for just $399.99.
There’s absolutely no word on a ship date, but as Netbooked points out, there’s probably no harm in placing a pre-order. Amazon won’t bill you until the laptop actually ships… if it ever does.
The Acer Aspire One 532g is expected to have a 10.1 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 processor, and both integrated Intel GMA 3150 graphics and discrete NVIDIA ION second generation graphics, enabling 1080p HD video playback and GPU acceleration for Adobe Flash video.
