The Acer Guy managed to get 24 hours alone with a pre-production Acer Aspire One unit. And while we’ve seen plenty of reviews of this subnotebook, his coverage is some of the first I’ve seen from the vantage point of a tech enthusiast rather than a tech journalist. Admittedly, he’s a big ole Acer fan and seems easily exciteable. I’ve never seen anyone quite so happy to create an OpenOffice.org document, but if you want to see some hands-on videos with the Acer Aspire One, here are some good places to start:
- Watching movies
- Skype, email, and other applications
- Work and productivity software
It looks like Acer’s decision to use Linpus Linux Lite may have been a good one. The interface looks at least as easy to use as the custom version of Xandros that Asus uses for the Eee PC. But I’m guessing that most power users are going to want to wipe the operating system and install their favorite Linux distro, Windows, or something else altogether.
