Acer Aspire One officially on sale in the US starting at $379

By on July 16, 2008, 1:54 AM
Acer is taking a leap into Eee PC territory today with their Aspire One sub-notebook now officially available in the US. The notebook comes with pretty much everything we’ve come to expect from the latest generation of low-cost ultra portable laptops, including Intel’s 1.6GHz Atom CPU, an 8.9-inch screen that delivers a resolution of 1024x600 pixels, and a choice of Windows XP or Linux operating systems.


Data storage options include an 8GB NAND flash module with an additional SD card slot for expansion or a 120GB internal hard drive, while RAM is limited to either a measly 512MB or average 1GB – though even the 512MB option is supposedly more than enough to run the custom Linpus Linux OS. Other features of the One include Intel’s GMA950 graphics chipset, a web camera, Ethernet, 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi, a 5-in-1 media card reader, three USB 2.0 ports, and either a 3 or 6-cell battery for up to seven hours of running time.

The Linpus Lite Linux OS comes loaded with software organized in a task-centric manner for connectivity, productivity, games and storage. Acer is putting a strong focus on the Internet too, with a browser, multiprotocol IM client, fully functional email application, and VoIP options all neatly presented upon boot up. All in all, it looks like the Eee PC has another very worthy contender on its hands. Three versions of the One are available now priced from $379 to $449, depending on configuration. Check them out after the jump.
