Hot on the heels of the Asus EeeBook X205, Acer thrown its hat into the neo-notebook ring with the Aspire E 11, with similar specifications, dimensions, and price to its competitor.

Acer’s new compact offering features a 11.6″ 1366×768 display, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of solid-state storage, and Windows 8.1. However, the Aspire’s dual-core Celeron N2840 processor can’t quite compete with the quad-core Atom Z3735 boasted by the EeeBook. Add to that the heavier weight – 2.84lbs, against Asus’ 2.2lbs – and seven hours less battery life than the EeeBook, the Aspire pales in comparison.

Although Acer’s new hardware doesn’t compare favourably to the Asus equivalent, its release does suggest that the neo-netbook market is set to become a lot more competitive.
