On Thursday, Acer demonstrated its latest netbook, the Aspire One 751.
The 751 is larger than most subnotebooks that would be termed 'netbooks', as it has a screen measuring 11.6 inches. Typically, a netbook has a screen measuring no more than 10.2 inches.
The 751 will be sold with a choice of Windows XP or Vista installed.
Because it has a larger screen-size than most netbooks, the 751's chassis is able to take a full-size keyboard.
The screen itself is a back-lit LED display with a widescreen XGA (WXGA) resolution of 1,366x768 pixels.
Acer said the 751 will be able to achieve a battery life of up to nine hours, if it is loaded with a six-cell battery.
The Aspire One 751 is an inch thick and incorporates a 160GB HDD. However, an Acer representative told ZDNet UK on Thursday that a solid-state-drive (SSD) version would also be made available.
The internals of the device also include an Intel Atom Z520 processor, running at 1.33GHz, and a mobile Intel US15W Express chipset.
Connectivity is provided via 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and integrated 3G.
To make the netbook thinner, Acer moved the VGA (pictured above) and LAN ports onto the angled back corners of the device.
Acer's Aspire 751 will go on sale in the UK sometime in May, at a launch price of £379 for the 160GB hard-drive version. According to the manufacturer, a cheaper version will subsequently be made available with a smaller-capacity SSD.
Colour options for the netbook include white, black, blue, red and pink.
