Acer showed confidence about capturing the Korean market by announcing new products at a press conference in Seoul Plaza Hotel on August 20th.

This is the very first time in the PC market that a regular laptop that can be used for over 8 hours on one battery charge. A unique advantage of the laptop is that it gives off only a little heat, even if it is used for a long time. Acer assures this with a patented Comfy Touch Technology (CTT) system. Also included is the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4330 graphics card, which is based on the Intel Ultra Low Voltage (ULV) processor.

The Aspire One 751h is also based on the Intel Atom processor. It has a crystal bright wide 11.6 inch wide monitor with a 1366x768 resolution. The keyboard of this netbook is wider than others, which solves the problem of an inconvenient typing experience with other netbooks.
