Right now if you want to pick up an Acer Aspire One netbook with Windows XP, you need to find a model with a hard drive. While Acer does sell several models with solid state disks, they run Linpus Linux Lite instead of Windows. But according to French news site Blogeee, that will soon change.
Acer is launching several new models with SSDs and Windows XP, including a model with a built in 3G wireless modem. Neither my French nor Google Translate is really good enough to make complete sense of the pricing information Pierre at Blogeee posted. I have a feeling that the chart above doesn’t tell the whole picture. So if you can tell how much the cheapest SSD/Windows model will cost, let us know in the comments.
No word on when we’ll see similar options available in the US.
