Acer Aspire One Official Release and Prices

Acer Aspire OneI know how much you lot love the EeePC but now Acer’s Aspire One has finally gone all official!

Could this be the One to tempt you away from Asus? (see what I did there?)

So the full specs are as follows:

  • 8.9-inch 1024 x 600 LED-backlit display
  • 1.6GHz Atom N270
  • 512MB DDR2 SDRAM (expandable)
  • 1.3 megapixel camera, SDHC and multi-format media readers
  • 802.11b/g, Ethernet, three USB 2.0, VGA, and 3.5mm audio out
  • One free mini PCI slot for WWAN
  • 80GB hard drive (with XP) or 8GB solid state (with Linux)
  • 2.5 or 5 hours on 3 or 6-cell batteries in XP model, 3 or 7 hours on Linux
  • 1kg (2.2 pounds)

Word is that you should be able to get your mits on one this month in blue or white (with black, red, and pink models coming soon).  You folks over in the states should see it released later this year.

Look to be coughing up £199 for the Linux model, and £299 for the XP one.
