With so many rumours floating around the webosphere, it’s always great when what could be potentially be hear say, turns out to be true. Take the 10-inch Acer Aspire One netbook for instance. Rumours of a little 10-incher from Acer was tipped to be on the cards and just a couple of months later, here it is. And with a new screen size, comes a newly refined design.

Its specs are typically netbook-esque, packing a 1.6GHz Atom processor, 1or 2GB of RAM, 160GB hard drive and a screen resolution of 1,024 x 600. Other noteworthy specs include WiFi, Bluetooth, optional WiMax and 3G connectivity, a card reader and an Acer Crystal Eye webcam. Acer claims its latest little lappy sports an “incredibly low power consumption”, which when coupled with its 6-cell battery “guarantees 7 hours battery life”. We’ll be putting that possibly far-fetched claim to the test when we manage to get our hands on one.

You know the saying, with death comes new life? In this case it’s, with a new netbook comes the death of an old one. Yes, that’s right, according to the DigiTimes, as soon as the 10-inch model hits the shelves Acer plans to cull its line of 8.9-inch models. This is expected to happen around mid-February, when the new model will be available for £299 in four high gloss hues, adding to the innumerable amount of netbooks currently overcrowding the little laptop market.
