Our friends over at Netbook News have just received a shiny new Acer Aspire One 756 notebook, which is an 11.6-inch device powered by Intel's surprisingly quick Celeron 877 processor. Netbook News report that the Aspire One 756 actually scores significantly better performance than a netbook sporting an Intel Atom processor, with a Windows Experience Index score of 4.4!
They report that Windows 7 boots up in a snappy 25 seconds, and since it's priced at just $330 on Amazon, Netbook News call it "the new netbook". I concur, because at that price, for a faster machine, how can you complain?
They've also provided an unboxing video, which goes into much more nitty-gritty details, if that's what you're into. They go over the Aspire One 756 and compare it to some of the previous generation Acer netbooks.
