Acer’s 11.6-inch netbook has been officially announced and released in the US. I can’t find a place to actually buy it yet, but it’s “available” according to a company press release, so look for them to pop up like netbook-shaped Whack-a-Moles at retailers everywhere.

Along with the 11.6-inch AO751h-1192 (yes, that’s the sexy model number), the 10.1-inch AOD250-1042 (mmm, also with a sexy model number) has been announced. The 11.6-inch model has a starting MSRP of $349 with a three-cell battery, $379 with a six-cell, and the 10.1-inch version has an MSRP of $298 with a three-cell battery — no mention of a six-cell version yet.

As previously reported, the 11.6-inch machine has a nice high-resolution screen at 1366×768 (the press release says 1364×768, ROFL!) and an intriguing thin-and-light form factor, but early reviews have dinged the machine for its spongey keyboard and relatively weak 1.33GHz processor.

Here’s a quick look at the specs (the full press release can be found here):
