The Acer Aspire One Happy has been making the rounds in Europe for a little while, showing up at Spanish and Hungarian retail sites last month. Now the mini-laptop is also heading to the UK, where it will sell for about £250, or just under $400 US.
What’s more, the UK version will apparently dual boot Windows 7 and Google Android 2.1. It’s not clear whether the version of the Aspire One Happy on sale in other countries will also feature the dual booting operating systems, although word on the street is that Acer plans to offer Android on all of its upcoming notebooks that have dual core processors. The Aspire One Happy will be available with either a single core Atom N450 processor or a dual core Atom N550 chip.
The netbook features a 10.1 inch display, WiFi, Bluetooth, and optional 3G. The Acer Aspire One Happy supports up to 2GB of memory and will be available with up to 250GB of hard drive space. The computer will be available with pink, purple, lime green, or light blue lids. Aside from the Android option, the colorful lids are probably the most distinctive feature on this laptop.
Notebook Italia reports that the Happy will be available in Italy in November with a starting price of 349 Euros. Like the UK model, the version shipping in Italy will run both Windows 7 Starter and Google Android.
