Kevin liked his Acer Aspire One but felt it would have been better with Windows XP installed. Those who feel the same can now pick up an Aspire One at Best Buy for just $299 complete with XP. The model at Best Buy has decent specs for less than $300:
Intel® Atom™ processor N270
Features a 533MHz frontside bus, 512KB cache and 1.6GHz processor speed.
- 1GB PC5300 DDR2 memory
- 8.9" WSVGA widescreen display with Acer CrystalBrite technology and 1024 x 600 resolution
- 120GB SATA hard drive (5400 rpm)
- Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 950
- Built-in 0.3-megapixel Acer Crystal Eye webcam
- Digital media reader
- 3 high-speed USB 2.0 ports
- Built-in high-speed InviLink 802.11b/g Wi-Fi connectivity
- Weighs 2.2 lbs. and measures 1.1" thin
- Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition operating system preinstalled
That’s a pretty decent system for just $299 and no camping out all night required. Thanks to Ryan Rinaldi for the tip.
UPDATE: It says "deal of the day" in the small print so you’d better hurry online if you want one.
