Ever since the tablet knocked the netbook off its lofty perch in the highly mobile computing market niche, you hardly hear about new releases from netbook manufacturers any more. This does not come across as a surprise, since most netbook configurations are the same, and they are not exactly high powered enough to get heavy duty work done due to the limited power processor, but rather, is great for checking and replying emails, downloading files, storing data and typing the basic text document or dealing with some simple spreadsheets, while you update your social network page and play with Flash-based games. The tablet offers all of that and more, without taking up the bulk and space of the already small netbook. This has not stopped Acer from introducing its Aspire A0722 netbook though.
Just what is so special about the Acer Aspire A0722 netbook? For starters, this 11.6″ device has 4G support, and despite its small size, still comes with a full-size keyboard for complete functionality. Running on the AT&T HSPA+ network, other hardware specifications include a trio of USB ports, a 0.3-megapixel webcam, a 320GB hard drive, 2GB RAM, a VGA out connector, an Ethernet Jack, headphone jack, and HDMI-out port. Expect the Acer Aspire A0722 to retail for $449.99 outright sans contract, while you can always agree to a 2-year contract with a 3GB monthly data plan, taking up the Aspire A0722’s cause at a heavily discounted $39.99 then.
