A slimline version of the Acer Aspire One dubbed the ZG8 (model name AO530) has passed through the FCC. The unit will be approximately just one-inch thick (25.5 x 18.5 x 2.4 cm). This revised Acer Aspire One has a new type of hinge which the Ethernet and VGA ports are repositioned onto it.
No other specifications have been revealed apart from the fact that it will support 3G. The model name ‘AO530’ may also suggest the use of an Intel Atom Z530 under the hood. Earlier reports suggested 1GB of RAM and a 160GB hard-drive. There is no official word from Acer so far, although details are likely to be forthcoming.
