Acer currently has a big investment in the small laptop market. Recently, Acer came out with a 10 inch version of their Aspire One version of Netbooks. With a low price tag, anyone can afford their very own Netbook. While the Acer Aspire One is not the best Netbook on the market, you get a
lot of bang for you buck. The Acer Aspire One comes loaded with everything you could need in a Netbook.
Acer has put the new Atom processor inside the Aspire One. The Atom processor runs at 1.6Ghz and uses a very small amount of power. While this 1.6Ghz processor might not sound fast to you, it can get the job done. You can surf the web, have iTunes running in the background, and install a program with no noticeable performance loss. The Acer Aspire One 10 inch comes with 1GB of RAM standard, thou you can bump it up to 2GB if you want to. The 1GB of RAM seems to do its job just fine.
The Aspire One comes with a 160GB hard drive, which is plenty of space for small laptops. Windows XP comes standard on the Aspire One now, it used to be available with Linux. One of the only problems with the specs of the Aspire One is the Graphics Card, it only comes with an integrated graphics card. The Intel Graphics Accelerator 950 can play videos and DVDs just fine, but don’t expect to play any graphic intensive games on this Netbook. It comes with a very nice 10 inch LCD screen, screen measures 10 inches wide and 8 inches tall. The whole Netbook weighs about 1kg.
The Acer Aspire One has both a headphone jack and a microphone jack. Which is perfect if you want to use the web-cam that comes standard on this Netbook. The Aspire features 3 USB slots and a multi card reader, which can be used to upload pictures from your digital camera. Of course the Aspire One also has a wireless card and an Ethernet 802.11 b/g. The Acer Aspire One could have really benefited from a Blue-tooth connection, it would have made some things a lot easier. The keyboard on the this Netbook is small, but is still comfortable enough to write with.
The Acer Aspire One is the perfect mini laptop to be used as a small business laptop or for a student on the go. With the amount of space available on the hard drive you can store all of your photos, mp3s, and school/work stuff. The size of the Aspire One makes it easy to carry in a small bag or purse. This Netbook will turn heads at your local coffee shop. I constantly have people come up to me and ask me what it is. This Netbook both looks and preforms well. If you have been in the market for a Netbook but you where waiting for them to drop in price, now is the time to buy one. The Acer Aspire One 10 inch Netbook is affordable, performs well, and looks very good.
