Acer Aspire 1410 spec'd and priced

Dual-core SU2300 for just €449


Acer is
taking Intel's affordable ultraportable platform rather seriously, and it's currently offering more models in more shapes and sizes than any other vendor.

Most are based on the SU3500 or SU9400 and are pretty closely matched in terms of hardware. However, the Aspire 1410 will get a couple of new CPUs, one of which is rather exciting.

The SU2300 is a 1.2GHz dual-core part with just 1MB of cache, but it ends up dirt cheap and should offer quite a bit more muscle than the puny Celeron 723 or 743. An Aspire 1410 with a SU2300, 2GB of memory and a 250GB hard drive ends up with a list price of just €449. Add to that HDMI, an 11.6-inch 1366x768 screen and optional UMTS support and you end up with a sweet deal.

There's also another SKU, based on the new Celeron 743 at 1.3GHz, and it will cost €399. As it has just 1GB of memory and 160GB of storage, it's nowhere near the SU2300 SKU in terms of value, but it's still a much better choice than any Atom-based netbook. Mind you, Acer's Aspire One 751, powered by a 1.3GHz Atom Z520 currently sells for €399.

As wee said a couple of weeks back, the SU2300 and Celeron 743 should launch in late September, and you can probably expect the Aspire 1410 to start shipping then as well.
