Want to settle for something other than your usual Intel Atom fare? Well, there is always AMD as another viable replacement, so it makes perfect sense if Acer decided to fit in the AMD Fusion processor into their Aspire One AO522 netbook which by the way, was “upgraded” from pre-order status from several weeks ago to “shipping” at Amazon.com. Prices start from an extremely pocket friendly $329.99, where the black model will be made available to everyone while those who prefer something else less traditional (green, we’re looking at you) currently remains in the pre-order state. Underneath the hood lies an Ontario C-50 APU at 1GHz with dual cores, an integrated Radeon HD 6250 graphics chipset, a 250GB hard drive, 1GB RAM, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi connectivity, HDMI out, a 6-cell battery and Windows 7 Starter as the operating system of choice. If you’re looking out for a netbook, this might just be the ticket for you.
