.boring design / colours - I think the Acer design / colours display a new feel not seen in many other of the colourless sea of black laptops, the shade of off white for the keyboard is bold and different (not like all the other boring black keyboards). To me, it looks sleek and futuristic.

The Aspire One 532G is an HD Netbook from Acer that offers a step-up from Acer's other Aspire One models, most notably the 532H. Operating on the Pine Trail platform and featuring a 10.1" high-definition LCD display, the 532G claims to be the first Netbook to feature NVIDIA's "Ion 2" graphics chip. This gives users access to true 720p video playback both online and offline, and the addition of an HDMI port means that 1080p quality can be attained by outputting to an HD TV or monitor. According to Acer, the 532G will also be the first Netbook to utilize NVIDIA's "Optimus" automatic switching technology. This feature will automatically toggle back and forth between the computer's GPU for more graphic intensive operations, and its IGP for less complex operations - all with economic battery and CPU usage in mind.
