Acer brews up Fusion-based Aspire One netbook

Written by


1GHz dual-core Ontario inside
Acer is preparing to introduce its first AMD based netbook, the 10-inch Aspire One 522.

Sporting a classic Aspire One chassis in Futurama trademarked electric mucus green, the 522 is based on the C-50 processor, a 1GHz Ontario dual-core with a TDP of 9W. The C-50 features Radeon HD 6250 graphics with DirectX 11 and UVD3 support, something Intel's netbook parts can only dream of.

Aside from the new processor, the Aspire One 522 also comes with a new 1280x720 screen, which is a significant improvement over previous 1024x600 units. It also has HDMI out, just in case you need more.

Battery life is rated at six hours, which is somewhat less than similarly spec'd Intel-based Aspire Ones.

I am disappointed. The battery lasts only for up to 6 hours. There are Atom based netbooks that last up to 14 hours.

Wasn't the low power consumption supposed to be one of the major selling points of Ontario/Zacate?

well intel never had graphics.

The colour isn't exactly eye candy, hopefully there will be more colours available, Acer are always thinking of Skittles when making laptops and netbooks

6 hours , in typical usage , since this a dual core , let's put it next to the 550 , the 550 only has up to10hours of usage in "Asus Hybrid Mode" in my 1015PEM ,
not exactly mine , but my mom's .

4 hours in typical usage :) that 550 .
And it's higher resolution screen make the 6250 abit harder . Anyway , it was meant to do 1024 x 600 .

us brits should see these on the shelf for about £270, not bad for brand new tech, dual core, DX11 graphics and DDR3 memory, I've got £300 coming to me for Christmas so I'll save it and get one in a more dashing colour
