Compared to the Asus Eee PC and MSI Wind, the Acer Aspire ONE was already one of the more affordable netbook options on the market, but Acer is getting ready to set itself apart even further. No, not by bumping the features, but by reducing the price.
The Windows XP version — 120GB HDD, 1GB RAM — has been cut from $400 to $350. If the Linux version — 8GB SS, 512MB RAM — is more your cup of tea, then you’ll be glad that it is getting the same $50 discount, slashing the price from $380 to $330. It’s not quite at that $300 sweet spot, but it’s getting awfully close.
These reduced price points are for the subnotebooks with three-cell batteries. If you want a little more life with a six-cell, you can pay the original prices of $400 and $380.
