Now that the netbook sector is good and saturated, Acer is carving out a spot for itself in the entirely less crowded MID market. Or, at least that's the impression we get from its most recent patent application. The image you see above is about it for details, though it's fairly safe to assume that an Atom (or similar low-power CPU) will be housed within. Who knows, maybe we'll get a peek of this critter for real at CeBIT -- you can bet we'll be looking.
