Acer Aspire 532g is a new laptop with 10-inch screen,3D,3G and many more.But it may Cancelled….
Acer may have announced a handful of new netbooks this morning, but we’ve been waiting and waiting on the NVIDIA Ion 2-powered Acer Aspire One 532g. And we hate to be the bearer of this bad news, but it turns out we could be waiting forever on the 10-inch, 1080p-playing netbook.
The Acer Aspire One 532G was on track to be the first 10 inch netbook to ship with second generation NVIDIA ION graphics. But now it loks like the project could be canceled or postponed indefinitely.
If you have been eagerly awaiting for the release of the Acer Aspire One 532G notebook posted here back in February, 2010, we are sad to say that it will not happen.There is apparently a problem with the Ion 2 netbook’s NVIDIA and Acer drivers, forcing Acer to cancel the said notebook.
Bad news if you were waiting to pick up Acer’s Aspire One 532G, the NVIDIA Ion 2 toting 10.1-inch netbook the company quietly unveiled back at MWC in February. According to Blogeee, Acer has cancelled the netbook; they’re suggesting that “technical problems” left Acer and NVIDIA uncertain that the performance potential of the AO532G would be in keeping with expectations, and so they pulled the plug altogether.
French site Blogeee reports that Acer has canceled the Aspire One 532G, although it’s not clear whether the cancellation is global or if it just affects Acer’s French or European divisions.
The Acer Aspire One 532G was first introduced in February, although NVIDIA didn’t officially launch its new ION graphics platform until March.
That doesn’t come as a complete surprise. While we didn’t have time to properly test the AO532G at MWC, we later saw benchmarks performed on the netbook that in fact suggested the Ion 2 was slower than its first-gen Ion predecessor. Subsequent testing of the Ion 2 GPU on other machines showed a performance improvement; at the time it was assumed that the Acer had merely been a poorly-showing prototype, but it now looks as though it could have been a more fundamental issue with the netbook.
Blogeee is reporting that bugger has been canceled in France due to technical issues with NVIDIA and Acer drivers, and when we followed up with our Acer contact here in the US, we were told that the 532g would not be launched in the “upcoming back-to-school cycle.” It’s truly not looking good for the little laptop, not to mention it’s extremely disappointing not to see any other Ion 2 netbooks on the market almost five months after its launch. Well 532g, we’ll always look back on our time together at CeBIT fondly.
Acer had previously said the Aspire One 532G would be priced at €379, and indeed Blogeee are suggesting that some retailers had already accepted preorders; those will now be refunded. No word on whether Acer will make a second attempt with the Ion 2, and if so when that might take place.
