Acer Drops Pricing on Aspire One, Intros New Model

Acer Aspire One
Yesterday I talked about netbook pricing and how Acer (and Lenovo) seemed to have hit the sweet spot with prices for their netbooks hovering around $375 – $430.

Well, and I swear I had no prior knowledge of this, Acer has decided to drop the prices across the board today, on the 8.9″ Acer Aspire One. These are some major price drops – $50 USD.

They’ve also introduced a new model with a 160GB HDD and a 6-cell battery for $399.

Acer Aspire One AOA150-1447: $399
— Windows XP Home, 160GB HDD, 6-cell battery, probably 1GB of RAM

Acer Aspire One AOA150-1570: $349 (orig $399)
— Windows XP Home, 1GB RAM, 120GB HDD, 3-cell battery

Acer Aspire One AOA110-1722: $329 (orig $379)
— Linpus Linux Lite, 512MB RAM, 8GB SSD, 3-cell battery

Some online retailers are already reflecting the new prices – is one of the first to drop prices on some of the existing models (the AOA110-1295 which looks to be the same as the AOA110-1772).
