Acer drops price of Aspire one Netbook for back-to-school

Acer announced a price reduction across its Aspire one line today, making the UMPCs more affordable in the wake of back-to-school shopping. Now getting that portable PC for your kids or for your on-the-go lifestyle should be a little easier on your wallet.

Acer is the third largest PC vendor on the globe and these price reductions should expand their appeal even more. The AOA150-1570 model, which contains Windows XP Home Edition previously retailed for $399 and will now go for $349. The model that has Linpus Linux Lite was $379 but will now sell for $329. The AOA150-1447, which is intended for users that require a more professional level of functionality, has also come down in price as well and will sell for $399.

As so many parents scramble to find quality UMPCs at affordable prices for their kids and college students look for a PC that will get the job done while on a budget, Acer is appealing to the tech-savvy individual with a fixed dollar amount in mind, and their timing seems to be perfect.
