Acer is preparing an updated version of its Aspire One 522 netbook, dubbed the Aspire One 722, or AO722. The AO722 brings a few updates, most notably a 1366x768 11.6" display, a larger battery offering up to 7 hours of use and one extra speaker. Apart from those changes, the AO722 is essentially the same on the inside as the AO522, featuring a 1GHz AMD C-50 dual-core APU and Radeon HD 6250 graphics. The netbook will also have a water drop design similar to the AOD257. Windows 7 Starter will be the OS of choice. I'd expect to hear more details regarding the Aspire One 722 in the coming weeks.
