seagateFollowing a massive round of layoffs earlier this year affecting 800 workers, hard drive maker Seagate has announced it is cutting a further 1,100 jobs as it moves to lower costs and return to profitability. The latest layoffs, to be completed by the end of July, will result in restructuring charges of around $72 million (largely from severance payments) but should also represent some $125 million in annual savings for the company.

In its most recent quarter, Seagate reported a net loss of $273 million on $2.1 billion of revenue. That followed a $496 million net loss during the previous quarter and the closure of several facilities. Since the beginning of their fiscal year 2009 last July, the company has shed more than one quarter of its workforce costs, and says it will continue to “assess options to further reduce manufacturing operating costs” in the months ahead.

The Aspire One will have another model added to its lineup shortly, with Acer planning the launch of an 11.6-inch wide unit. This model differs widely from other Aspire One units, from the much larger screen size to the hardware under the hood. It’ll be the most “powerful” netbook Acer offers, using the same basic components as their newest 10.1-inch models. The netbook itself is based off the Atom Z530 and uses the Intel “Poulsbo” chipset with an integrated GMA500 graphics core. 

The 11.6-inch screen nevertheless is going to be more power-demanding than before, which the low-TDP chipset helps to offset. All in all, Acer is estimating that with the (optional) high capacity battery, runtimes of 8 hours can be expected. As far as the screen size goes, it’s a nice in between, larger than the older netbooks which many considered to be on the small side and not as bulky 13-inch and larger units. Acer has no plans to incorporate 3G into this system as a native option, which some netbook manufacturers have been considering (and even deploying) as a selling point.
