Acer’s got a few nice yet-unseen netbooks coming out – the Cedar Trail Acer Aspire One D270 and the Ferrari One FO300 with one of AMD’s newer, upcoming Fusion chips. They’ve also got the Aspire One Happy2 netbooks which have just shown up on Amazon.com overnight. I’ll tell you right off the bat that these are still Pine Trail netbooks so nothing to get excited about. Basically just an update to Atom N570 and the ripple-lid design from the older “Happy” series.
Being in the “Happy” series there are a bunch of fruity colors. There’s a lower end model priced at $270 and a higher end model for $300 with the only difference being a 3-cell battery for the lower-end and a 6-cell battery for the higher end models.
Shared specs between them – a 10.1″ 1024 x 600 display, Intel Atom N570 processor, 1GB DDR3 RAM, 250GB HDD, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, SD card reader, 0.3MP webcam, 3x USB 2.0 and Windows 7 Starter. 8 hour, 4400mAh 6-cell battery or 3-cell 2200mAh battery. This is, of course, one of those netbook deals to make us – customers Happy, as the name says
