The Acer Aspire One 532G will be the first Pine Trail netbook to sport Nvidia ION 2 graphics along with Nvidia’s Optimus power-saving technology. Details on the ION 2 implementation are still scant however we have been told it is a GeForce G218 part with dedicated 512MB memory.
The Aspire One 532G will be powered by a 1.66GHz N450 Atom processor, 2GB RAM, a 320GB HDD and a 10-inch high-resolution display. As you would expect it also comes with a HDMI out and optional 3G. Acer says that the netbook will have a 10-hour battery life, this falls to five hours if using ION 2 graphics constantly.
The Aspire One 532G is reasonably slim too, measuring 1-inch in thickness and weighing 1kg. The netbook will be available in three colours (Pearl Silver, Ruby Red and Sapphire Blue) when it ships at the end of March. Pricing details remain unknown for now.
Update: Notebook Italia has a hands-on video of the Acer Aspire One 532G in action. Check it out below (thanks Marco!)
