New York-based retailer J&R has posted product pages for the soon-to-be-released 10.1 inch Acer Asprie One netbook. And despite initial reports that the computer could cost between $400 and $600 overseas, it looks like J&R expects to sell the netbook for just under $350, which makes me feel a lot better about the rumors that Acer could phase out its 8.9 inch netbook and replace it with the new model.
According to J&R, the Acer AOD150 laptops will come in red, white, blue, and black and feature a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 CPU, 1GB of RAM, 160GB hard drive, 802.11b/g WiFi, a 6-cell battery, and Windows XP Home Edition. They’ll also have 10.1 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel displays and new and improved touchpads with the mouse buttons below the pad instead of on the left and right sides.
J&R is taking pre-orders now, and says the laptops are “coming soon.”
