  "Acer is about to start shipping Aspire One netbooks with 11.6 inch screens -- I'm expecting a short term loaner this week -- and Asus will have a model later this month, according to DigiTimes in Taiwan.

   "Both systems run the ultra-cheap version of Windows XP, which has only been available for use on netbooks with up to 10 inch screens. Apparently Microsoft has been persuaded to move the goalposts in the light of what both Acer and Asus tell me is a consumer demand for bigger screens. "The real limitation now is that it cannot be more than 12 inches," says Massimo D'Angelo, the Acer vice president in charge of Europe.

   "Dell, of course, may have been instrumental in this: it is offering the Dell Inspiron Mini 12 with a 12.1-inch screen. Asus has also shown me a system with a "12 inch screen". I won't be shocked if all these screens turn out to be the same size when I get chance to measure them."
