Acer’s working hard to match its Taiwanese competitor’s Eee PC line. They are looking to add one more to its expanding family of Aspire One. The Aspire One 571, which looks similar to D250 adds few new things that you wouldn’t find in a run-of-the-mill netbook. The screen size though remains the same at 10.1-inches but Acer has upped the resolution at 1280×720 with a 16:9 aspect ratio. It also integrates a co-processor from Quartics apart from Intel’s N280 which will do the encoding and decoding of the HD content.
Also, one more unusual thing the AA1 571 boasts is the inclusion of an optical drive. It’s not a regular optical drive but a small 32mm Vmedia discs that was seen a year back on Spice’s handset.
