Acer Aspire One 533: DDR3 packing 10.1-inch netbook outed

May 28, 2010 at 7:39 am

Acer Aspire One 533Acer is set to launch its own DDR3 10.1-inch netbook called the Aspire One 533. It will be powered by the upcoming DDR3-enabled N455 and N475 Atom processors. The benefits of DDR3 memory is that it needs only 1.5V, which is 0.3v less than DDR2 memory. This should in theory result in longer runtimes.

macles says that the battery life of the AO533 will be 10 hours and it will come with optional Bluetooth 3.0 support. There are a few design differences too, including a touchpad that rests in a chrome bed. Hard specs aren’t known right now, but don’t expect anything different over the current norm (1GB RAM, 250GB HDD and Windows 7 Starter). We’re likely to hear more on availability and pricing at next week’s Computex show in Taipei. Click through for a number of photos. Read more
