Acer Aspire One 532G Ion 2 netbook to be priced at €379 ($516)

March 3, 2010, By Thomas Antony

Acer had shown off their Aspire One 532G netbook touting NVIDIA’s Ion 2 chipset at the MWC 2010 last month. They hadn’t at that time given any clue as to how much it would cost. Well, they decided to do that today at their CeBit 2010 press conference. The 10-inch netbook will cost €379 ($516) once it hits the stores.

So what all do you get in the package? Well, under the hood, the Aspire One 532G is powered by an Intel Atom N450 1.66GHz processor along with a scaled down version of NVIDIA Ion 2 chipset with just eight CUDA cores. This has resulted in relatively low performance in graphics benchmarking, to the point that the new Aspire One actually scored lesser than its Ion-predecessor! However, Acer is claiming upto 10 hours battery life on the AO532G which is considerably more than the previous version.

Other key features include WiFi, Bluetooth and HDMI connectivity. We will have to wait till it becomes available at an as yet unknown date, to see if they have managed to hit that sweet point between performance and battery life.
