Acer Aspire one (Windows XP)

Acer became a member of the ever-expanding mini-notebook club with the Linpus Linux Lite version of the Aspire one, which we praised for its intuitive interface, fast boot time, and comfortable keyboard. The company follows up that Linux-based machine with the Windows XP–powered Acer Aspire one, a netbook with a nearly identical design that runs Microsoft’s most popular operating system. This model sees a bump in RAM from 512MB to 1GB and swaps a small 8GB solid-state drive for a traditional 120GB hard drive and costs only $20 more than the Linux model at a very affordable $349.
