Acer Aspire One

  • Access the Internet anywhere.
  • Compact and lightweight.
  • Stylish blue or white.
  • Shockproof file storage.
  • Easy to use.

One word: gorgeous!

This handsome little computer is comes in glossy Seashell White or Sapphire Blue finish. The curved edges and sleek design make it one of the most stylish mini notebooks available.

It’s slim and compact enough to slip into your bag, briefcase or backpack. And at just 995g you’ll hardly even notice that it’s there.

A wonderful widescreen display

The 8.9" CrystalBriteâ„¢ widescreen LCD is wonderfully sharp and crystal clear. Whether you’re surfing the Web, working on documents, or watching videos, it’s a joy to use.

A word of warning, though: The glossy finish that helps create such impressive images is highly reflective. If you’re buying a notebook to regularly use outdoors, one with a matte screen would be more suitable. (Take a look at the Asus Eee PC 901 or the MSI Wind U100.)

Easy to use whether you’re a novice or experienced

The Aspire One comes with a choice of two operating systems: Linux or Windows XP®.

The Linux operating system is designed to be easy to use and is an ideal notebook for students, children and novices. The Instant-On technology means you’ll be up and running in just 15 seconds. And with just one click you can start programs or connect to the Internet. Simple.

If you’re experienced with Windows, the XP version will be familiar territory.

The perfect little communication tool

With fast wireless Internet you can surf the Web, send email, and instant message wherever you are.

The built-in webcam, microphone and stereo speakers mean you can video chat with friends whenever you want.

Reliable shockproof storage for your precious files

The entry level Linux model comes with 8GB of storage space on a shockproof solid state drive (SSD). You can increase this to 16GB by adding a Secure Digital (SD) card.

If you need more space, all other models include a 120GB hard disk drive (HDD). That’s plenty of room to store your documents, photos, music and movies.

Powerful, yet frugal

The new Intel Atom 1.6GHz processor is fast enough to easily accomplish everyday tasks.

Its low power consumption will give you up to 3 hrs from the included battery. A higher capacity 6-cell battery is also available and will keep you going for 7 hours.
