Acer’s official web page for the upcoming Aspire One mini-laptop is up and running. But if you really want to know more about Acer’s first foray into the low cost ultraportable market, I recommend taking a look at Blogeee’s overview. The French Eee news and review site attended a recent presentation held by Acer and shot some video and a ton of pictures.

The video is in French, but you can get a pretty good idea of what the operating system will look like. The Acer Aspire One will use a custom version of Linpus Linux Lite, and like the custom version of Xandros Asus uses for the Eee PC, this version of Linux will be designed with computer novices in mind. The programs most people will use most often like the web browser, email, chat, and word processing applications will all have large icons that show up on the first screen you see when the computer boots up.

As far as hardware goes, the Acer Aspire One is pretty much the same size as the Eee PC 900/901. But if you’d like to see a few side by side photos and a ton of up-close photos of the Aspire One, check out the complete article at Blogeee.

  1. It’s too bad that they didn’t think to make the expansion flash slot a CF interface rather than an SDHC interface. A 266x or 300x flash card would blow away the performance of even a class 6 SDHC, for about the same price. Meanwhile, if I want to read an SDHC card, I can do that with the slot on the right side.

    Still, this is the one I want.
