Likely in preparation for the back-to-school sales rush, Acer has applied a price cut to its Aspire one netbook. The firm claims you can now get the Intel Atom-powered system with 1GB of RAM, a 120GB hard disk drive, a three-cell battery, and a copy of Windows XP Home Edition for just $349. Penguin sympathizers can get the same netbook with Linpus Linux Lite pre-installed for $20 less.
That's not all. Acer has also introduced a new Aspire one unit for "education and business customers." This new model features a six-cell battery, a 160GB mechanical hard drive, and Windows XP Home; and it costs only $399.
A quick peek at Newegg shows an Aspire one with only 512MB of RAM and an 8GB solid-state drive still selling for $379.99. As a reminder, this subnotebook features an 8.9" LED-backlit display with a 1024x600 resolution, and weighs in at just over two pounds.
