Acer has launched a new 11.6-inch notebook dubbed the Aspire One 725, armed with AMD’s APU Fusion technology, combining an AMD C processor and AMD Radeon HD 6290 graphics.
Acer reckon the Aspire One 725 was "designed to skilfully combine a tasteful and stylish look with terrific performance enabling users enjoy a sensational visual experience for superb multimedia." Interestingly, they describe the device as a netbook, something we’ve seen less of these days.
Mixing their measurement systems, Acer say the Aspire One 725 is thinner than an inch and weighs just 1.2kg. It also comes in either Caribbean blue or Volcanic black. The case is said to have a ‘glittery’ quality. Classy.
The display is 1366 x 768 pixels and the chassis can accommodate up to 4GB of RAM and has a choice of a 320 or 500GB hard drive. The specific APU in use is the dual-core AMD C-60.
No pricing was announced but you can bet it will be priced substantially below devices packing Intel’s Ivy Bridge.
