Acer has introduced a new netbook dubbed the Aspire E100 and the E stands for Education… or maybe Europe. Notebook Italia reports that Acer is working with the European Schoolnet on the project.

For the most part the E100 looks like a standard Acer netbook. The key differences are that schools can customize the mini-laptop with their logos, and there’s a pocket for students or teachers to put a label with their names. Acer also preloads some education oriented software including the Acer Classroom Manager which lets teachers monitor and interact with students using the laptops.

The Acer Aspire E100 features a 10.1 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, a 6 cell battery, a 250GB a hard drive, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1 and Ethernet. There’s an Intel Atom processor inside the netbook, although Notebook Italia doesn’t specify which Atom chip. I’m guessing N455, N475, or N550 since the computer uses 1GB of DDR memory.

Like some versions of the Acer Aspire D255 and D260 netbooks, the E100 can dual boot Windows 7 and Google Android.

There’s no word on whether the netbook will be launched in the US or other markets outside of Europe.

  1. The Acer E100 seems to come with Windows Starter pre-installed – I have just bought 16 for my classroom. BUT……… how do I use Android instead of Windows? Any advice on how to use a dual-boot system? Never done it before.
