>> Dan: I'm Dan Ackerman and we're here with the new Acer Aspire One, this is actually a new 10 inch version of Acer's very popular Aspire 1 9 inch NetBook. Acer's pretty much controlled the entire Netbook market because their Aspire One is about 350 bucks, that's like 50 or 100 bucks cheaper than any other Netbook out there. What they've done with the new 10 inch version is keep the same basic Intel and CPU, one Gig of RAM, Windows XP obviously add the bigger screen and the best part still 350 bucks, so if you're looking for a big 10 inch Netbook don't want to spend a lot of bread this is the way to go. There are a couple little hints that this is kind of a budget product there's kind of no Bluetooth in it and the touch-pad see is very small, it's very square, these little left and right mouse buttons are on this little rocker switch that's actually hard to press down, I got to press really hard it's kind of annoying, the keyboard's not terrible especially for a 10 inch Netbook it's not as good as the one on the HP Mini 1,000 that's a really good, really big flat keyboard but certainly very useable. One of the best things we like about this new 10 inch Acer Aspire is the great battery life you can get almost 6 hours out of it but it's got this big chunky 6 cell battery right here on the back so you're gonna be carrying this around, adds some bulk, adds some weight. I'm Dan Ackerman and that's the Acer Aspire One. ^E00:01:22
