Review: Acer Aspire One

,----[ Quote ]
| To sum up the Acer Aspire One: this is what notebooks should have always been
| like. Small, portable, light, fast, and cheap. For just EUR 299, you are
| getting a proper netbook, with all the functionality of its big brothers and
| sisters. Maybe not as full-featured as the MSI Wind, and not as hyped as the
| eeePC, but still the better choice, simply because it's a hell of a lot
| cheaper.

| FIVE MILLION LITTLE LAPTOPS are predicted to ship this year,

| inches that run a full version of a client operating system, be that Linux or
| Windows

Acer Aspire one (Linux)

| Taking a cue from ASUS’ well-received custom Linux interface, Acer packages
| the system with a lightweight, customized Linpus Lite Linux operating system.
| We just wish this netbook lasted longer on a charge.


The Acer Aspire One Netbook Review

,----[ Quote ]
| We'll be taking a look at the Acer's Aspire One, which makes its debut into
| the rough and ever-evolving world of the netbook market. Featuring an
| 8.9-inch screen packed into a compact frame, this version of the Aspire One
| that we're reviewing uses Linux and has only 8GB of storage space, similar to
| the earlier ASUS Eee PC models. Size wise, this unit is slightly bigger than
| the Eee PC 901, but still smaller than the MSI Wind NB U100.


Acer Aspire One: the new sub-laptop to beat?

,----[ Quote ]
| Mind you, the 120GB HDD-equipped One is only down as £30 more and comes with
| 1GB of memory rather than 512MB, though that's plenty for Linux and do you
| really want a hard drive in a machine that's going to be chucked around a
| lot? Well, at least you have the choice.


CyberLink Sees Opportunities in Netbooks, Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Multimedia software maker CyberLink sees a lot of opportunities in the
| fast-growing netbook segment of the computer market, from online access
| to files stored on home PCs to multimedia software made for Linux OSs.
| Some of the most popular netbooks, or mini-laptops, being launched come with
| options for far less storage space than mainstream laptops, such as Asustek's
| Eee PC 1000, Eee PC 901and Acer's Aspire one.
| Many of them also run on a Linux OS, such as Linpus Linux Lite on the Aspire
| one and Linux OS by Xandros on the Eee PC. These netbooks can also come with
| Windows XP instead.



Acer: PC industry 'disappointed' with Vista

,----[ Quote
| Acer president Gianfranco Lanci became the first major PC manufacturer to
| openly attack Microsoft over the Windows Vista operating system in the
| Financial Times Deutschland on Monday.
| Lanci said the operating system was riddled with problems and gave users and
| businesses no reason to buy a new PC, according to the report. Taiwan-based
| Acer is the world's fourth-largest PC manufacturer, after HP, Dell and
| Lenovo.
| "The whole industry is disappointed with Windows Vista," Lanci said.
