Intel recently announced the launch of the dual-core Atom N570, a variation of the Atom N550 but with higher clock speeds at around the same power consumption. Acer, however, is getting a head start on the new Atom by immediately announcing an Aspire One netbook featuring the N570. Called the Aspire one AOD255E, the 10.1-inch netbook will feature a 1024x600 resolution display, 1GB DDR3 RAM, 250GB HDD and Windows 7 Starter. Battery life is expected to last for an impressive 8 hours.
The netbook is currently available on Amazon for just $330. The new model is similar to the Acer Aspire One D255, but with the newer Atom processor.
