Acer's 10-inch Netbook is One of the Cheapest

Although it may be late to the party, Acer now joins in with its 10-inch netbook.

Acer America today announced that its 10-inch (which actually has a 10.1-inch screen, to be exact) Aspire One AOD150 is now making its way into U.S. stores.

Under the hood, the new AOD150 is nothing new. In fact, its components list look like something from last year. The Intel Atom N270 is at the heart, along with the 945GSE chipset, 1 GB RAM, Windows XP -- basically, what we’ve already seen from the Asus and MSI offerings.

The AOD150 also ships standard with a 6-cell, 4400 mAh battery to provide what Acer is advertising as up to six hours of computing time.

Perhaps in hopes to immediately set it self apart with a bit of fashion, the new Aspire One will come in four different colors: white, black, blue and red. And if a snazzy red netbook isn’t enough to reel in the consumers, Acer will fall back on what made its 8.9-inch such a hit -- the price.

The AOD150 will retail for $349.99. Check out Laptopmag's review of it here.

    Is it cheap or inexpensive? Cheap gives negative tone as in poor quality that makes it less costly. I know these are tiny screens, but what I really want to see is higher resolution on these things. I think they should all be at a minimum the partial HD screen of 1280x720 pixels. I would be much more happy with higher resolution yet. While not everyone has perfect vision, those of us with perfect vision would like to use it. I got a Dell Mini 9 for my wife, and while she loves it, I could not use the thing, because I cannot get enough information on the screen to be productive. I want information, and alot of it.

    I have the original acer aspire one, and this one looks like a definite improvement over the last one, but it is bigger than the older one.
