Acer Aspire One

By Jim

I had the privilege of using an Acer Aspire One for about a week when my uncle asked me to initialize it for his office use. At first it was a little too awkward for me to use it because it was too small for my fingers. I’ve been used to larger notebooks from the DELL Inspiron 8600 to the Macbook Pros… but I felt I needed a dip into the “other side” to find out how it feels to operate a netbook.

Good thing I did, at least now I could say it wasn’t bad at all! It was a little weird at first, but after about an hour of using it, I think I could get along with it. The major advantage if ever I would own one netbook as this would be the size factor. It’s so easy to use and bring around! Much lighter than my Dell, and definitely more lighter than my Macbook. I think Apple should invent a netbook product line to compete with this market scope.

Check out the specs as reviewed by PC Magazine right here. I believe my uncle got his from Walmart for about US$298 after a US$40 mail in rebate. Not bad, he got it during the peak of the holiday sale.

It does look like a toy, doesn’t it. But a powerful toy indeed.
