Call them sub-notebooks, netbooks, UMPCs, or what one clever Engadget poster deemed them: "Liliputers," the biggest hardware launches at Computex in Taipei this week fall into the umbrella category of "smallest."
The specifications for Acer's Aspire One are now official as of today: With a profile of 9.8" x 6.7" x 1.14", a weight of under 2 pounds, and an LED display with 1024 x 600 resolution, the Aspire One is about on par with its fellow netbooks in size.
By comparison, HP's Mini-Note runs a little over two pounds and offers a 1280 x 768 WXGA display, and the venerable Asus Eee pre-body redesign measured in at a tiny 8.8 x 6.5 x 0.9 inches with only a 7" display. With these new specs, Acer slightly exceeds speculation late last week when early pictures of the device emerged.
