Acer's slim Aspire One 531 available, reviewed

€379 in Germany


We talked about Acer's new, slim Aspire One netbooks on a few occasions, and now the 531 is available in Europe.

The asking price is €379, and considering it's a thin and stylish piece of kit, this sounds pretty good, as an Asus Eee PC S101 will set you back €450. Still, it is €50 more than a similarly spec'd Aspire One D150, but many people, including us, will think it's well worth it.

The Aspire One 531 is powered by an 1.66GHz Atom N280 on a 667MHz bus, it has 1GB of memory and 160GB of storage. It measures 255 x 202 x 31mm, and weighs 1220g, so it's a bit thinner than most similarly priced netbooks, but it's not the lightest one around.

It's half way between a fashion item, such as the S101, and a regular netbook, and it looks like a good deal. In case your German is good, you can take a look at a pretty thorough review at notebookjournal.de, here. Overall, they liked it. However, like us, the notebookjournal crew thinks glossy screens simply shouldn't be used in netbooks, ever.
