Acer Aspire one Price Cut

Heating up the increasingly crowded field for netbooks, Acer today dropped the price of the Aspire one down from $379 to $329. The change makes the 8.9-inch portable one of the least expensive for its features with a 1.6GHz Atom, 512MB of memory, an 8GB flash drive, and Linux. Costs have also been dropped for higher-end models: the mid-range with 1GB of memory, 120GB of hard drive space and Windows XP receives a cut from its original $399 down to $349.

The company has also introduced a top-end model with a 160GB disk and a longer lasting six-cell battery at the same $399 price as the previous mid-range model. This is intended both for high-end users as well as students and workers, according to Acer. All of the notebooks are already in shops and come in as many as four different colors.
