Purported Specs Surface for Slimline 10" Acer Aspire OneS

Yesterday's 10" slimline Acer Aspire One leak wasn't rich with info, leaving us nothing but our own speculations. Luckily, some guy got a hands-on with the machine, and took plenty of notes.

An anonymous tipster passed on these hands-on photos along and full spec list to NetbookNews, though we can't confirm its authenticity:

Housing: 2.4 cm thick, 25.5 cm wide, 18.5 cm deep
CPU: Intel Atom N270 1.6 GHz
RAM: 1 GB
HDD: 160 GB
WLAN: 802.11a/b/g Atheros (goes with ath5k in the kernel 2.6.29er)
LAN: Attansic Gigabit (goes with atl1e in 2.6.29er kernel)
SATA: Intel ICH7 Controller SATA: Intel ICH7 controller
Display: 25.9 cm / 10.2 "diagonal with Glare (but bright enough that it doesn't matter)
Resolution: 1024 × 600
Sound: Intel HDA
VGA: Intel 945GME
Int.Cardreader: JMicron (goes with sdhci module after the command modprobe pciehp pciehp_force = 1)
Bluetooth: integrated (Broadcom chipset)
UMTS: "apparently" yes
Killswitch: for Wlan + Bluetooth
Touchpad: Synaptics (scroll down to the edge possible)
Battery: 3-cells (approximately 3 hours duration)

The only surprise here is the lack of an SSD. The spec list says it'll be a 160GB HDD, which is encouraging from a performance standpoint (the Aspire One's SSD's are slllooooooooow) but not so much from a toss-it-in-you-bag-without-thinking-about-it angle. The smallish battery is also a bit alarming, as the Aspire One, even in its previous smaller incarnation, was never know for great battery life. As for the OS, I wouldn't expect a change from the current XP/Linpus situation—the SUSE installation you see in the photos was apparently not the OS that came with the netbook.
