High-Performance Features That Save Power for All Day Mobility

Engineered for extreme mobility, the Aspire One utilizes the energy-efficient Intel® Atom™ N450 processor, integrated Intel graphics and the mobile Intel NM10 Express chipset to keep users connected while on-the-go.

To further support power savings and longer battery life, the netbooks’ 10.1-inch LED-backlit TFT LCD saves 22.2 percent power compared with other netbook displays.

The new Aspire One netbook line offers many configurations to fit a wide range of consumer needs. Batteries are one component that have several options, including a high-density, six-cell Li-ion (5600 mAh) battery that delivers up to 10 hours of battery life or a 6-cell Li-ion (4400 mAh) for up to 8 hours battery life. Additionally, the batteries give a slight tilt to the netbook for a more comfortable typing experience.

Mobile Performance and Connectivity

The new Aspire One AO532h netbooks offer users a simple and reliable mobile computing solution. The netbooks all come with ample memory and a large internal hard drive to store plenty of digital albums, music and documents.

To remain connected, the netbooks feature 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi and fast Ethernet LAN connectivity. For further communications needs, the netbooks are equipped with a built-in webcam, delivering smooth video streaming and high quality images for online chats and video conferences. A built-in digital microphone conveys superior voice quality, keeping background noise levels low and minimizing echoes.

The Aspire One netbooks have a 10.1-inch CrystalBrite™ LED-backlit display, offering a broader viewing area for Web page navigation and data input. They also utilize a Multi-Gesture Touchpad, allowing users to pinch, flick and swirl their fingers across the touchpad for intuitive navigation. It also allows users to scroll, zoom in and out, and flip through web pages, photos, spreadsheets and more. Additionally, a larger keyboard – 93 percent standard size – is more convenient for typing.

Several of the new netbooks include Windows® 7 Starter Edition, combining the latest in reliability and responsiveness with the familiarity and compatibility of Windows.
