My Acer Aspire One arrived today. Within an hour I had everything up and running including downloading some additional programmes I wabted like i-tunes, etc.
OK so it doesn't come with any CD/DVD drive, but lets be honest how often do you use it, and if you do then you can get a plug in DVD burner for under 40 quid
I do have a couple of issues, namely some of the keys are incorrectly labeled, like the @ is on number 2 and I'm still looking for the pound symbol, it's not on shift 3 as expected!!
But for under 300 quid I have a wireless laptop that I can use at home, in the car and down the local cafe. I can access my mail within 15 seconds, surf the web and watch shows from the bbc iplayer (the screen quality is brilliant)
One last thing, it's equipped with a great built in webcam! having lots of fun with that!!!
