Acer And Asus To Release 11.6-inch Netbook

Acer Germany has recently listed a new 11.6-inch netbook model called the Aspire One 751 on their website. The netbooks is equiped with an Intel Atom Z520 processor paired with a US15WExpress Chipset, 2GB RAM, LED-backlit 200-nit WXGA display with 1366×768 resolution, Wi-Fi b/g and an optional Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, and triband UMTS/HSPA WWAN. While there's no words on when this netbook will be made available in the US, it's expected to hit UK market within this month, and is expected to priced around $518.

At the same time, Digitimes is also reporting that Asus will be releasing a 11.6-inch Eee PC netbook this month. There's no further information available for the 11.6-inch Eee PC at this moment, other than that it will account for 30% of Asustek’s shipments for the rest of the year, according to the company's president Jerry Shen.

Most netbooks today have the standard size of either 8.9-inch, 10.1-inch or 12-inch display. And it looks like now the 11.6-inch netbook size is going to be another new standard size for netnook. We suspect that there will be more 11.6-inch netbooks from other brands popping up soon.
