Default Acer Aspire One for $199 from Expansys

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.expansys-usa.com/d.aspx?i=184342&partner=pthoughts' target='_blank'>http://www.expansys-usa.com/d.aspx?...rtner=pthoughts</a><br /><br /></div><p>This is a bit off topic for some sites in our network, but a good deal is a good deal: our hardware affiliate partner Expansys is selling the Linux-based version of the <a href="http://www.expansys-usa.com/d.aspx?i=184342&amp;partner=pthoughts" target="_blank">Acer Aspire One for $199</a>, which is an excellent deal. This version of the Aspire One has an 8.9 inch screen, 1 GB of RAM, a 120 GB hard drive, and uses the 1.6 Ghz Intel Atom CPU. Combine that netbook with a <a href="http://www.digitalhomethoughts.com/news/show/94262/pre-order-windows-7-home-premium-upgrade-for-49-99-limited-time-offer.html" target="_blank">$49 copy of Windows 7</a>, and you've got yourself a nice little piece of mobile computing technology (just be sure to also have an external USB-based optical drive). I haven't installed Windows 7 on an Acer Aspire One, but I suspect it would work just fine - Windows 7 identified all the important hardware on my MSI Wind and HP Mini 1000 netbooks without a problem.&nbsp;At the time of this writing, Expansys only has 58 left in stock, so don't delay.</p>
