[News] The Register Looks at the Many GNU/Linux-Based Aspire Laptops

Hash: SHA1

Acer Aspire One A110

,----[ Quote ]
| Thankfully, Acer has taken a slightly more restrained view of what 
| constitutes an SCC. Its Aspire One is available in just three basic flavours: 
| 8GB SSD and Linux; 120GB HDD with Linux; and 120GB HDD with Windows XP. On 
| the desk in front of us, we have the least expensive, most basic model, the 
| 8GB in MacBook-envy white, the most pure iteration of the SCC concept to 
| date, in our opinion.     


Windows is hardly even present.


Review: Acer Aspire One

,----[ Quote ]
| To sum up the Acer Aspire One: this is what notebooks should have always been
| like. Small, portable, light, fast, and cheap. For just EUR 299, you are
| getting a proper netbook, with all the functionality of its big brothers and
| sisters. Maybe not as full-featured as the MSI Wind, and not as hyped as the
| eeePC, but still the better choice, simply because it's a hell of a lot
| cheaper.


Acer Aspire One (Linpus Linux Lite, White)


Ace in the hole

| The Aspire One sells for P18,800 for the Linux version, making it the most
| attractively-priced netbook in the market today. For that price, you get an
| Intel Atom N270 processor, an 8.9-inch LCD screen, 1 gigabyte (GB) of memory,
| an 8GB flash drive for storage, built in Wi-Fi and Ethernet and a built-in
| Web cam.
| The Aspire One comes with a good selection of free software, starting with
| the operating system, Linpus Lite, a version of Linux based on Fedora.
| Remarkably, the Aspire One boots up and is ready to use in less than 30
| seconds.


Acer Aspire One ZG5 (Linux)

| Solid-state drive, SD storage expansion slot, relatively good battery life
| from standard 3-cell battery, under 1kg


Acer Aspire one (Linux)

| Taking a cue from ASUS’ well-received custom Linux interface, Acer packages
| the system with a lightweight, customized Linpus Lite Linux operating system.
| We just wish this netbook lasted longer on a charge.


The Acer Aspire One Netbook Review

,----[ Quote ]
| We'll be taking a look at the Acer's Aspire One, which makes its debut into
| the rough and ever-evolving world of the netbook market. Featuring an
| 8.9-inch screen packed into a compact frame, this version of the Aspire One
| that we're reviewing uses Linux and has only 8GB of storage space, similar to
| the earlier ASUS Eee PC models. Size wise, this unit is slightly bigger than
| the Eee PC 901, but still smaller than the MSI Wind NB U100.


Acer Aspire One: the new sub-laptop to beat?

,----[ Quote ]
| Mind you, the 120GB HDD-equipped One is only down as £30 more and comes with
| 1GB of memory rather than 512MB, though that's plenty for Linux and do you
| really want a hard drive in a machine that's going to be chucked around a
| lot? Well, at least you have the choice.



Acer: PC industry 'disappointed' with Vista

,----[ Quote
| Acer president Gianfranco Lanci became the first major PC manufacturer to
| openly attack Microsoft over the Windows Vista operating system in the
| Financial Times Deutschland on Monday.
| Lanci said the operating system was riddled with problems and gave users and
| businesses no reason to buy a new PC, according to the report. Taiwan-based
| Acer is the world's fourth-largest PC manufacturer, after HP, Dell and
| Lenovo.
| "The whole industry is disappointed with Windows Vista," Lanci said.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
