When the world is busy upgrading its CPU and computing processor powers, Acer has played a U-turn game by launching a Netbook that is powered by Intel’s Celeron and Pentium processors. For the ones who are of this generation, let us remind them that Celeron and Pentium used to be the processor kingpins of the 1998 – 2005 era.
Let us now take a look at the specs and features of the Acer One 756 Netbook:
- 11.6 inch Display screen with 1366 × 768 pixels display resolution
- Powered by Intel Celeron 877 or Pentium 967/987 processor. The Intel Celeron 877 with its two cores clocks in at 1.4 GHz while the Pentium 967 with two cores hits 1.3 GHz. Both of these processors are way faster than the Intel Atom processors.
