Small but perfectly formed – netbooks are the new handbag-sized generation of laptops and offer an alternative to cumbersome notebooks. Acer will be showcasing its new “minis” at CeBIT 2009.

The D150 from Acer is the first ten-inch netbook in the new Aspire One Series. It has a 1.6 gigahertz Intel Atom processor, either one or two gigabytes of RAM and the ability to work for six hours without being recharged.
