Want a Happy One?

Discover the new Aspire One Happy in four fruity colors


June 2011 –
Summer is upon us, with its warmth, energy and a myriad bright colors filling our eyes. To match this explosion of life and joy, the Acer Aspire One Happy has donned new clothes and comes in fresh, fruity, tasty colors that bring the flavor of summer into your life.

Blueberry Shake, Papaya Milk, Strawberry Yogurt and Banana Cream are the four new shades of the Aspire One Happy, evoking summertime, holidays and exotic drinks. Whether you have a romantic soul or want to make an impression, the sweet colors will match your spirit.

Papaya Milk and Banana Cream shine with optimism, energy and happiness and will bring sunshine to rainy days. Soothing and soft, Blueberry Shake and Strawberry Yogurt stir up memories of sunsets and exotic holidays.

Want to create an even more colourful effect? Match the Aspire One Happy with a wireless mouse in the same color, for a coordinated look. Or be daring and mix and match different colors for a joyful explosion of flavors.

The new Aspire One Happy will catch the eye. The cover has a shiny finish and is embellished by a textured water-drop design. While matching the summer and fruity drink theme, the wave design emphasizes your desire to communicate and reach out, just like the ripples on the surface of water.

At home or away, the Aspire One Happy frees you from cables for up to 8 hours[1], so you can keep in touch with what is going on in your social networks, give a school project the finishing touches while you are on the bus, and check your emails or surf the net as much as you want. And when you need to charge it, the Acer MiniGo adapter is 40% lighter than the previous 30 W adapters and makes your travel hassle-free thanks to interchangeable AC converters.

Wi-Fi CERTIFIEDconnection and Fast Ethernet make sure you are never too far away from your life online, allowing you to take advantage of both wireless and wired connectivity. Plus, with Bluetooth® 3.0+HS (optional), you can share photos and music with friends in a matter of seconds. And if you need to chat face-to-face, you have the Acer Crystal Eye webcam with Acer Video Conference Manager to enhance image quality and allow for photo, document and screen sharing on the spot!

The Acer FineTip keyboard has larger keys making typing more comfortable and is complemented by a wide multi-gesture touchpad matching the color of the cover, which is perfect for scrolling documents, rotating images, zooming and browsing, all with fingertip convenience. The Aspire One Happy is just perfect to surf the net and enjoy your multimedia.

Slim and light as usual, the Aspire One Happy is an unobtrusive companion. Slip it in your backpack or even in your handbag and you will barely notice it is there— yet it features a superb 28 cm (10.1”) WSVGA high-brightness display with a 16:9 aspect ratio, perfect for web-chatting, web browsing and video streaming. And, for better performance and power savings, the display is LED backlit.

With the high-performing and low-power-consuming dual-core Intel® Atom N570 at its heart, the Aspire One Happy also comes with up to 1 GB of DDR3 memory and a rich selection of applications to let you surf the net, share photos and videos, listen to music, and if you really have to, you can also finish that tricky school assignment — all at the same time. Plus, an Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 3150 teams up with the processor for superb graphics. A large hard disk with up to 320 GB of capacity and a built-in multi-in-one card reader ensure convenient storage options and file sharing.

And wherever we are, we all must take responsibility for the environment. This is why the Aspire One Happy is designed with sustainability in mind. Smart power technologies combine with environmentally friendly production to create an all-round green device. RoHS and WEEE compliance means fewer hazardous substances were used in the production; single-charge all-day power, Acer MiniGo adapter, LED-backlit display and low-power processor ensure conformity with ENERGY STAR® requirements.
