The Acer Aspire One 533 netbook is one of the latest generation netbooks to make use of the new Intel Atom N455 / N475 processors which have new DDR3 RAM support.
While the new DDR3 RAM is faster, it only provides a small real usage boost to the netbook, but the DDR3 RAM uses 1.5V, rather than 1.8V making it more energy efficient than the standard DDR2 RAM, and provides a small battery life boost, resulting in 10 hours of run time.
Other than the DDR3 support, the Acer Aspire One 533 has a great new design with plenty of chrome thrown in. The touchpad buttons are surrounded by a chrome finish, along with another strip of chrome near the bottom of the lid.
The Acer Aspire AO533 also looks very slim with an essentially flush 6-cell battery. There is also a very large panel at the bottom of the netbook for upgrading its some of its hardware. There is also optional Bluetooth 3.0+HS.
There is currently no word of the Acer Aspire One 533’s price or release date.
