Acer Aspire One 722 Netbook Being Readied; Upgraded Variant of the 721 Model

April 20, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

If you are among the many who have been hoping for some kind of a sprucing up for your Aspire One 721 netbook, your prayers are being answered now. The netbook will have its updated variant soon. Acer is all set to launch the new version, and is calling it the Aspire One 722 netbook.

The new model, like its predecessor, will come featuring a dual-core AMD C-50 Ontario processor of 1GHz with Radeon HD 6250 graphics.  Like the 721 netbook, the upcoming device will also feature 11.6-inch display with 1366×768 resolution.

The new model will have a rather stylish lid with a liquid like “drop ripple” design and appearance. This design has been taken from “water drop” introduced by Acer Aspire One D257 at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Windows 7 Home Basic is expected to be the OS of Aspire One 722.

Another significant change is that the new model will accommodate a battery with extended life of up to seven hours compared to the six hours the previous version had boasted of. That indeed is a plus.

There is also a shift toward a stereo speaker configuration instead of a single driver. Most of the other features are identical to those of the Aspire One 522.

The pricing information and other details regarding the release date of the device are yet unknown. We guess we will wait a bit more to get our hands on that.
