Acer has a new netbook coming in the Aspire One lineup, an 11.6″ netbook called the V5. Not alot of 11.6″ netbooks have been released lately as companies have moved more into the “ultrabook” category as the economy has improved. There are still alot of people that don’t want to spend $700 on a laptop though, and can get by with something that doesn’t have a quad core processor or 8Gb of RAM. This is where the Aspire One V5 comes in, with an expected price tag of less than $500.

It will feature either an Intel Celeron or Pentium chip, instead of the usual low-power Atom processor, and will be less than 0.6″ thick!

This will be one of the thinnest netbooks out there, and with a much more powerful processor could be a very popular model.

There aren’t more details available yet but it will supposedly start shipping in the second quarter.
