While Acer and most other manufactures are now concentrating on ultrabooks rather than netbooks, the upcoming Acer Aspire One V5 11.6-inch laptop has more in common with a netbook than an ultrabook.
The recently announced Aspire V3 and v5 series models will be coming our way shortly. The V3 series models will be available in 14, 15.6 and 17.3-inch sizes, while the V5 series will be available in 14-inch 15-inch and most importantly to us, an 11.6-inch model.
This 11.6-inch model is thought be be known as the Acer Aspire One V5, rather than the Acer Aspire V5 11.6-inch, linking it to the Aspire One series of netbooks.
Powered by either the Intel Celeron or Pentium processor, rather than the normal Intel Atom CPU, the Acer Aspire One V5 will be more powerful than previous netbooks.
The Acer Aspire One V5 is very thin at less than 0.6-inches thick, which puts it on par with the super slim and stylish ultrabooks.
While the Aspire One V5 doesn’t yet have a price, we do know that it will be shipping in the second quarter of this year.
If you like the slim and stylish look of ultrabooks, but don’t fancy the high pricetag the 11.6-inch Acer Aspire One V5 should suit you very well.
