The Acer Aspire One Happy is a 10 inch mini-laptop with an Intel Atom processor. Nothing new there. In fact, the computer is nearly identical to the Acer Aspire One D255. The main difference is that the Happy case comes in several different bright color options.

Still, under the hood the Happy isn’t quite the same as other Acer netbooks we’ve seen over the last few years. It has a dual core Intel Atom N550 processor. The folks at Notebook Italia took the computer apart and looked at its insides, and found a few interesting features. That includes a heatsink with a bit more surface area than usual to dissipate the extra heat generated by the dual core processor, and a metal cage around the hard drive to protect it from bumps.

If you’ve ever wondered what a netbook looks like when stripped down to its skivvies… and then taken apart piece by piece, hit up Notebook Italia for more details.
