The Acer Aspire One Pro 531 recently officially hit the UK market. The ‘Pro’ in the name denotes that this is targeted to business users. In terms of specifications this is almost exactly the same as the Aspire One 531. The only thing that differs with the Pro versions is that there is a wider choice of operating systems and storage options (including SSDs).
JKKMobile managed to get hands-on with the Pro 531 at Computex last week. It seems like a very attractive netbook, slimline with an understated design. It has a matte textured lid and good build quality. What I can’t understand, is that if this is targeted to business users, why does it have a glossy display? That certainly wouldn’t be welcome be me if I was on the road all the time. Apart from that, it has good upgradability with access to the 2.5-inch hard drive, RAM and optional 3G module. Check out the video after the break.
