AMD is jumping into the netbook market with the help of Acer. What took them so long and why are they just now taking the plunge?
If you own a netbook, then you likely have one with an Intel Atom processor. It may not be the only processor available in a netbook, but Intel is dominant in the form factor.
AMD hopes to put a dent in Intel’s domination by introducing the AMD HD Netbook Platform at the Netbook Summit in San Francisco. The new netbook platform …
Up till now AMD believed netbooks were not viable as satisfying mobile computers. Dessau supports this view by highlighting the percentage of netbooks that are returned and the poor satisfaction surveys of users of netbooks. He stated that buyers were drawn in by the price but then felt like they did not get what they were hoping for – an acceptable level of performance for a low price.
With the entry of the phenomenal netbooks, the world has seen the evolution of the computer as indeed a truly revolutionary and everyday-use device to aid people in their daily tasks, whether for the office or for the home.
Demands for computers with good features and affordable price started growing. Because of this, Taiwan-based electronics giant Acer has launched two new products that will hit the market. Acer Philippines introduced the Acer Aspire One 521 and Aspire One 721 that contains features never before seen in these kinds of devices.
Aspire One 521 and Aspire One 721 are both powered by AMD’s new Athlon II neo Dual Mobile Processor which has a 1.7-gigahert processing speed. The 10-inch screen of Aspire One 521 enables the user to multi task or run several applications all at once without having any problems regarding the speed. Aspire One 721 has the same feature as the Aspire One 521 other than its 11.3-inch display.
This powerful processor is ably supported by the AMD M880G Chipset for better performance and together with a 1GB DDR3 memory, allows for a simultaneous processing of different demanding applications where other PCs with lesser firepower would have normally conked out.
Graphics quality is another plus, assured this time by the Aspire One 521’s ATI Radeon HD4225 Graphics with 384MB of dedicated system memory. But graphics power cannot stand on its own without proper display qualities, which the Aspire One 521 has with its 10-inch SD high-brightness LED-backlit TFT LCD display that makes videos and images spring up with life-like quality and realism.
Aspire One 521 and Aspire One 721 also has a storage space of 250 gigabytes. A lot of Filipinos would like this specification because you can store a lot of media files, collections and other applications in it.
Aspire One 521 and Aspire One 721 has an ATI Radeon HD4225 Graphics processor. Because of its processor, you can play high definition photos in Aspire One 521 and Aspire One 721. This is one of the specifications that other laptops, computers and notebooks do not have. It also provides good graphic quality and smooth video streaming and high definition playback of movies, internet videos and DVDs.
Enough storage space is also assured with the 250GB SATA hard drive and built-in Acer Invilink Nplify wireless LAN for assured wireless connectivity for seamless communication with colleagues, friends, family and relatives wherever they may be.
Both Aspire One 521 and Aspire One 721 features Multi-gesture Touchpad that is perfect for scrolling, rotating and zooming images, browsing- all with mouse-less, fingertip convenience.
And just like the Aspire One 521, the Aspire One 721 has built-in wireless LAN for effortless connectivity and Acer CrystalEye web cam for flawless communication, a huge file house of 2GB DDR3 memory and 250GB SATA hard drive, and Genuine Windows 7 Home Basic that runs the whole thing and make this beauty of a laptop a truly admirable gadget for the 21st century.
These ultra-mobile gadgets do not only deliver the much-needed applications and specifications required for multi-tasking but also with its powerful AMD processor and chipset, Aspire One 521 and Aspire One 721 gives you the first-hand experience of High-Definition viewing with the aid of ATI Radeon HD 4225 Graphics with 384 dedicated system memory.
We’ve pretty much known about all of these Acer netbooks that are officially being announced today, but their very tempting price tags are definitely new to us. First up is the 11.6-inch Aspire One 721 and 10.1-inch 521, both of which we checked out last month. While the duo are powered by the same AMD Athlon II Neo K125 processors and ATI Radeon HD 4225 graphics, the 721 will start at $429.99 while the 521 at $349.99. And let’s not forget that, unlike Intel Atom powered netbooks, they sport HDMI ports and claim to be “HD capable.”
Enables netbooks that actually deliver on their promise: real portability, affordability, usability and long battery life. Not to mention outstanding performance. (Nigel Dessau, senior vice president and chief marketing officer at AMD from a blog post).
We believed there were too many compromises for the user, particularly the visual experience. Given these shortcomings, it was clear that netbooks were going to have to evolve to survive as a category. (Dessau)
Speaking of Intel netbooks, Acer’s got those in store too — the 10-inch, Atom powered Aspire One D260 and 533 will also be available later this month. The D620 packs an Atom N450 processor, 1GB of RAM and a three-cell battery for $298. On the flip side, the $330 Aspire One 533 has a slightly faster N475 processor, a 250GB hard drive and a six-cell battery. Enticing, right? The full press release is after the break, but hopefully we’ll be able to assist you in choosing one of these with some full reviews soon.
