Acer lowers netbook prices, HP followsBy Jose Vilches
TechSpot is celebrating its 25th anniversary. TechSpot means tech analysis and advice you can trust.
Acer has dropped the prices of two of its netbook models hoping to capitalize on the impending back-to-school sales season in the U.S. The Windows XP loaded version with 1GB RAM and a 120GB hard drive will drop from about $399 to $349, while the Linux model with 512MB RAM and an 8GB SSD is going down from $379 to just $329.
In addition, Acer has announced an all-new Aspire One model sporting a long awaited six-cell battery, a 160GB hard drive and Windows XP Home for $399. The price-cutting move has been mirrored by HP, which is already offering reductions of up to $100 on some versions of their Mini-Note product. Hopefully, other big names in the netbook market such as Asustek and MSI will follow.
