Photos of Acer’s upcoming 10-inch netbook, the Aspire One 103, have seeped their way through the cracks in the floorboards of the web for all to see. It looks similar to the 8.9-inch version except that the trackpad’s buttons have been moved from the sides to the bottom of the swiping surface and there are flashy new translucent teardrop-shaped logos adorning either hinge.
Specs are pretty standard fare: 1.6GHz Atom CPU, 1GB of RAM, 10.1-inch screen (1024×600 resolution), 160GB hard drive, Windows XP, SD reader, three USB ports, and webcam.
An optional 3G connection will be available on some models and the touchpad is multitouch – nice. Also, the RAM slot is accessible via a panel on the bottom of the machine so you don’t have to crack the thing open any more (like I did) to upgrade the memory.
According to TechRadar.com, the Aspire One 103 should hit the UK in four to six weeks so it’d likely show up here in the US around the same time, if not shortly afterward.
