    Hey folks,

    Well, im just wondering, does anybody own a Acer netbook, i.e. Acer Aspire One?

    I think its pretty cool and very small, i would be using it for college note taking, i definitely want the newest macbook but its very pricey. Although i love macs, this little aspire seems it would do the job..

    Please give me some enlightenment here..

    Take care..

    They had them on sale today at CompUSA here in South Florida. For $349 I picked one up... pretty slick little puppy. Has Windows XP which is what I wanted, and it'll be great to just stick in a briefcase and have handy when I might need it.

    I have a MacBook, which is far superior to this one, but it works. Has a webcam, WiFi, NO CD/DVD, and a small keyboard which takes a while to get used to.

    But all in all, after playing with it this afternoon, I kinda like it for what it is...

    I've been using mine for about a month now. I got the 120GB with the 1GB RAM XP version. I love it.

    It is by no means a replacement for your desktop but it works like a charm for school and work.

    Try it with the [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Samsung TruDirect External Slim 8X DVD Writer 5X DVD Reader USB 2.0 USB Powered [/FONT]I just cut and pasted from NCIX.COM on that one. But the super slim format works great if you need to carry hard media as well.

    i have to complitely agree with KriK here i got mine about a month ago and while it will NOT replace your main computer, (i use an iMac at Home) its a PERFECT travel companion and runs XP on 120GB for BDM and other microsoft Office.
    Now dont take me wrong if apple was to come out with a 9" Macbook id be all over that lol but for now the Acer Aspire One is PERFECT.
    (btw i tried the Asus EEE 10" and the MSI Wind before buying the Acer One and the latter is the BEST of all three - really no regrets)

    I have an EEEPC and works good, wasn't expecting much of a small system, it came with Linux and I installed XP Proff, was the old ones 2nd gen, wasnt until a buddy of mine show me his Acer Aspire that I notice the difference, thats a real system I like it a lot.

    If you are to get a new one, I say, try the keyboards first see which fits you better, Acer, HP and Dell have their own versions, I just know Asus keyboard does not have the right arrangement for me to type fast.

    Enjoy

    well just to be honest, i am thinking of getting the new AL MB as well just because im an apple junkie and i think the AL iMac is the sexiest piece of computer ever and they basically just made a laptop that looks the same way so i gotta have it lol.
    Are you in Canada ? maybe i could sell you my One ? or maybe ill keep both i am a road warrior after all lol
