The Acer Aspire One is among the most searched for netbooks here on SlashGear, so we were keen to get the 8.9-inch budget ultraportable in to see whether all the fuss is warranted. Based on Intel’s 1.6GHz Atom N270 processor, our review model has 512MB of RAM, an 8GB SSD, WiFi b/g and runs Linux. We’ll be putting it through its paces over the coming week, but until then enjoy the unboxing video!

Several versions of the Aspire One are available, including a choice of Windows XP Home or Linpus Linux Lite. Storage also varies, with both solid-state drives and traditional hard-drives, while RAM tops out at 1GB. There’s no factory-built 3G WWAN option, but Acer do fit each Aspire One with a webcam, multi memory card reader and microphone. We’ll be particularly interested to test out the battery life; our sample uses a 3-cell battery pack, but there’s also a 6-cell option.
The Acer Aspire One is available now, with our test model priced at around $329. We’ll have the full SlashGear review very soon, so keep reading!
