Acer gets in on the Netbook act

Check out something called the Acer Aspire One.

We just saw Dell's semi-undercoverattempt at a small, inexpensive laptop, and now Acer is getting in on the action, if these leaked shots of something called the Acer Aspire One are to be believed.

First spotted on the Web site UMPC Portal, and then quickly spreadingaround blogville, it purportedly hasa 1.6Ghz Intel Atom CPU, 512MB of RAM, a 4GB SSD hard drive, and runs Windows XP on an 8.9-inch screen (like the Asus Eee PC 900).

No release date or price yet, but there's a strong possibility we'll see this unveiled at Computex next week, so stay tuned. Also expected at that show are the Asus Eee PC 901(with Intel's Atom) and a slightly larger 10-inch version of the Eee PC.
