Acer Gets Into The Race for the Ultra-Portable Crown

We knew Acer was planning to get into the ultra-portable, ultra-low cost pc wars and it looks like they’ve taken price point as their battle ground. Introducing the Acer Aspire One, running Intel’s Atom with all the usual features, Acer is announcing a price point of $379. Acer is also offering a range of colors beyond the current black and white that we see predominantly now.



Keep in mind that Acer knows how to ship notebooks (they are second only to HP) so it looks like they are staking out their turf and going to be ultra-competitive in this ultra-portable, ultra-low cost market.

Engadget has gotten their hands on Acer’s Aspire One and has more pictures.
