The 11.6-inch Acer Aspire 721 has turned up for pre-order at Amazon.com for $429.99 in Mesh Black colour. The specific model (AO721-3574) is powered by a 1.7GHz single-core AMD Athlon II Neo K125 processor and comes with ATI Radeon HD 4225 graphics, 2GB DDDR3 RAM and a 250GB HDD.
It features an 11.6-inch (1366 x 768) display, 1.3MP webcam, Wi-Fi (b/g/n), Windows 7 Home Premium and a 6-cell 4400mAh battery good for 5.5 hours of runtime. Performance versus Intel Atom equivalents isn’t known right now, but at this price point it’s an enticing proposition.
