The announcement at Computex this week concerned the 8.9-inch Acer Aspire One has generated a lot of interest in Acer’s entry into the netbook market. Between the price (starting at under $400) and the specifications (Intel Atom CPU, LED-backlit display, large keyboard), it’s not hard to see why.
Videos (AVING TV, Eee PC News) and photos are starting to be published to the web.
CNET is reporting that the Linux version with an 8GB Solid State Drive (SSD) SSD, and 512MB of RAM will be available July 2, with the Windows XP version coming later on in July. Acer see the market as being both highly mobile tech-savvy types as well as a great first laptop for students.
