With these new models, Acer hopes to merge style, performance, battery life and value into a single package. More on the hardware specifications are available after the jump.

With a couple of such netbooks, you can expect pretty much standard specifications (after all, how far can you stray away from the current setup imposed by Intel and Microsoft where netbooks are concerned?), including Intel Atom processors, 10.1″ WSVGA LED-backlit displays, superior Wi-Fi connectivity, integrated webcams and a large keyboards for a more comfortable typing experience. The inclusion of multi-gesture touchpads also helps you keep up with the times, what with the iPhone and other Android-powered devices boasting multitouch capability and muti-gesture performance as well.

With the Aspire One AOD260, it is highly portable where you can choose from a quartet of colors such as black, charcoal, pink and purple. As for the Aspire One AO533 netbook, you get 8 hours of battery life on a single charge which is more than enough to handle most long haul flights for you to get some work done in between power naps. The Acer Aspire One AOD260 will retail from $298 upwards, while the Acer Aspire One AO533 will start from $329.99.

With which OS is it coming by default? Is it Windows 7?

It has 8 hours of battery by default, but I have noticed that after some months or so the battery life becomes less, and it sucks more! Specially this problem is with the Acer!

you are just now featuring this little workhorse of a computer? I have had my Aspire One netbook for almost 2 years now and I LOVE it. I think that it was one of the first netbooks out and i am happy to see that they have improved the battery life on them. The trick to making the most out of the battery is to let it drain completely down the first 5 times that you use it and then recharge it back up each time.
That is what I did with mine and i have had no problem with the battery not lasting as long as it said that it would.
