If you’re in the market for an Acer Aspire One but you’ve been reluctant to spend $320 on one, you can buy this 8.9 inch netbook today only for $30 off its usual price. Deal of the day shopping site Woot is charging just $289.99 for the Acer Aspire One.
This particular model is the base level Aspire One. It has an 8.9 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, a 1.6GHz Intel Atom CPU, 512MB of RAM (upgradeable to 1.5GB), an 8GB solid state disk (and no hard drive), and it uses Linpus Linux Lite as its operating system.
If you plan to load Windows XP on your netbook, you might want to skip this deal and grab an Aspire One with a hard drive or a different netbook altogether. Folks who have tried running Windows on this model report that the solid state disk is just too slow to keep up. It performs well under Linux though. And for $289.99 what more can you really ask for?
