Acer Aspire One Happy

Acer has given the Aspire One Happy a minor spec bump, making the 10 inch mini-laptop one of the cheapest netbooks available with a 1.66 GHz Intel Atom N570 dual core processor.

The Acer Aspire One Happy will be available in two configurations. Amazon is taking pre-orders for a model with a 6 cell battery for $299.99. You can also pre-order the netbook with a 3-cell battery for $269.99.

The defining characteristic of Acer’s “Happy” line of netbooks are the pastel colored lid options. The new version will be available in orange, ping, powder blue, or yellow.

The rest of the specs are pretty standard netbook stuff including a 10.1 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, 802.11b/g/n WiFI, and Windows 7 Starter Edition.

    1. MS restricts Windows 7 Starter Edition to certain hardware requirements, like it must be sold with only 1GB of RAM.  So unless they raise the price, they don’t have much choice on that matter.

  1. Wake me up when they put AMD Bobcat/fusion in there …otherwise  not interested in obsolete ATOM!

    1. Aside from Graphics, the lower end AMD Fusion Ontario isn’t better at everything vs the N570. 

      Maybe later, when they can get the higher end Zacate to go into systems smaller than 11.6″ but for now Intel still has a small CPU and power efficiency advantage in the low end mobile processors.  While AMD has the GPU advantage.  So ATOM is not quite obsolete yet…

      Though the new Cedar Trail offerings coming out later should give Intel a better position until AMD can go 28nm starting next year, but then Intel plans a big change over when they take ATOM to 22nm with Silvermount.
