Proper, I just did some research on this one and it looks darn good, now it will be a matter of the pricing point!
I can see the big discussion on various forums and web sites is where do you cross the line between being a netbook and notebook?
This one being thin, light, with good battery life and a much higher res screen in my book would still qualify as a netbook, but I think much bigger than this you are talking notebook again!
I'll certainly be watching out for this one and reading the user reviews because I get a lot more from that than these professional reviews!
What do you think the pricing point is going to be? I think if Acer pulls this thing of at the $399 price range they'll have a real winner hear!
P.S. - If you have any of those 10" Aspire Ones that you want to get rid of for cheap, just let me know!
That Samsung looks very nice, but it's a bit pricey.
I believe Radio Shack is selling those for $80.00 with a 2yr data contract from AT&T.
RadioShack.com - the nation's most experienced and trusted consumer electronics specialty retailers.
I see your point plus it's not unlimited internet.No we returned them all as they were just that bad!
Yeah if you pay full retail for them they are, but we got them through CDW with a pretty good discount and it put them just about $30 above the basic NC10's. Amazon is suppose to have an exclusive on the SE, but there are different models that can be purchased which are exactly the same. Because of the better build quality, matte display, larger battery life and track pad the difference in money is minimal. Sometimes you truly do get what you pay for I have certainly found that when it comes to netbooks.
No you want to avoid this with a 10 foot pole. Do the math, 24 months time $60 per month and $80. $1520 and you are locked into a contact! NO THANK YOU! You can get a much lower priced plan with just one of AT&T's internet cards.
Well, I went another direction and spent my netbook money on a Blackberry Bold (and an iphone for the wife). So no Aspire One for me this year...
Well whatever works for you and meets your needs that is really all that matters! A Blackberry just like an iPhone can do many of the thing that a netbook can do, though of course not everything!
I would say that my iPod Touch probably gets used everybit as much as my phone and netbook in a days time. I love having google's sync to keep all my appointments calendar and contacts all up to do and the same between phone and netbook or even desktop!
