Acer has officially rolled out the Aspire One mciro notebook that is powered by Intel's Atom processor.
According to Acer, the Aspire One will be able to run for half a dozen hours before gasping for a power outlet, which is a much better figure compared to the Eee PC from Asus. Other features include a webcam, a 5-in-1 memory card reader, a secondary SD memory card slot that enables the user to expand the Aspire One's permanent storage.
The Aspire One will be available beginning July 2 for $379, a 512MB RAM system powered by Linux and having 8GB of flash memory. Later that month, a version running Windows XP Home Edition with an 80GB hard drive, and 1GB of RAM will be available.
