Acer has the best selling netbook on the market with its Aspire One. The company has announced a new version of the netbook called the Acer Aspire One 10 that has a larger 10-inch screen. The first real problem for the netbook was the sort of problem buyers will like as the first set of netbooks shipped has a higher capacity battery.

The first group of Aspire One Tens has a 6-cell battery with 5800mAh of power. The battery that was supposed to go in the netbook offers 6-cells but only has 4400mAh of power. Laptop Magazine tested an early One 10 sample with the larger capacity battery and found the thing ran for nearly eight hours on a single charge.

When the 4400mAh battery that was supposed to be in the system showed up and testing got underway, laptop found that it lasted a much less robust 4 hours and 24 minutes. That runtime isn’t bad, but when you consider that Asus makes Eee systems with longer run time for only a bit more the Aspire One 10 doesn’t look as good as it used to. Acer trust me you just need to ship the machines with the 5800mAh battery and be done with it.
