Bargain Acer Extensa 15" Linux Notebook Released

,----[ Quote ]
| It seems that current economic hard times are really favouring the adoption
| of Linux as a pre-installed OS by mainstream PC vendors.
| Acer has just released a new Notebook model (5235-571G16N) part of it's
| Extensa line, with a full sized 15.6 inch matte LCD screen (LED backlight,
| 1366 x 768 resolution), 2GHz Intel Celeron cpu, 1GB RAM, 160GB hard disk, a
| DVD writer drive for a low price that is more typical of an average Netbook.
| It ships with Linux pre-installed, which avoids the Microsoft 'tax' that
| Linux users have to needlessly pay with most laptops and therefore helps to
| keep the price low.



Acer to make first-ever Android netbooks

,----[ Quote ]
| Acer at Computex today said it would be the first to produce netbooks using
| Google's Android platform. Company IT product president Jim Wong expects the
| systems to appear in the summer and that the Linux-based systems will still
| use Intel Atom processors. He didn't provide prices, though the Android
| netbooks should be less expensive than Windows versions as Google doesn't
| charge for licenses where Microsoft asks for $15 for each copy of Windows XP.
| [...]
| Acer's decision is a blow to Microsoft, which has managed to achieve a
| near-monopoly of the netbook market by consciously selling Windows below cost
| to reduce most of the price advantage that had led Acer, ASUS and others to
| choose Linux in the first place.


Acer may be first with Android netbook

,----[ Quote ]
| Acer plans to launch a version of its Aspire One netbook with Google's
| Android mobile operating system in the third quarter of this year, a top
| executive at the company said Tuesday.


Acer Aspire Revo hits retail, is surprisingly affordable

,----[ Quote ]
| Today, the supposedly-affordable-and-tiny 1080p-capable PC has become
| available at Play.com, and it's... well, surprisingly affordable. Today's
| listings show the base model - equipped with a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N230
| processor, 1GB of RAM, an 8GB SSD, GeForce 9400M graphics and a Linux
| operating system - etailing at a cost of £149.99.


Acer ponders Android smartphone

,----[ Quote ]
| Acer has followed in the footsteps of arch rival Asus with talk of possible
| plans to launch an Android-based smartphone.


Thin Acer Aspire One netbook suggests SSD, Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Before Acer moved to 10-inch netbooks from 8.9-inch versions, it used such a
| slot to bolster the limited storage capacity for its SSD-equipped Aspire
| Ones.


One month of living with an Acer Aspire One and Fedora 10

| Personally, I like the little fellow and Fedora 10 works well! ;-)


Acer Aspire One and Fedora 10

,----[ Quote ]
| This particular Netbook has been on the market a while and
| a number of people have shared their experiences with
| changing the operating system. My first thought was to
| install the latest version of Ubuntu Linux but research
| seemed to indicate that Fedora 10 was perhaps a little more
| compatible with the Aspire One hardware and would require
| less command line tinkering.
| I’m sure the situation of Linux release compatibility is
| constantly changing so my choice may not match your own
| decision.
| Not being sure how successful this Linux transformation
| would be, I decided to leave Windows XP on the Aspire One
| and have it dual-boot Linux and Windows. What follows are
| the basic steps for accomplishing this from the 10,000 foot
| level. You can find much more detail and knowledge here,
| here and here.


Review: Acer Aspire One

,----[ Quote ]
| So overall, I like the Aspire One. It's much better than the similarly priced
| Asus Eee PC 701, but I will be installing Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex on it this
| weekend already.

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)
