Acer considering launch of non-Atom nettop in early 2009

Logo AcerAcer is planning to launch a low-power and low-cost 1-liter nettop at the beginning of 2009, according to sources at OEM providers.

Since Acer expects Aspire one netbook shipments to surpass its goal of 12-13 million units in 2009, to prevent the nettop from impacting the company's Atom processor supply, Acer is considering using processors from VIA Technologies or AMD, but will still leave the Intel Atom as a possible option.

Acer also has three manufacturers in mind to make the nettop: Quanta Computer, Wistron and Micro-Star International (MSI). The company is expected to reach a decision in December.

Acer's nettop will be targeting both enterprise and consumer markets and be able to connect to a TV and LCD monitor.
