Acer Aspire AOA150-1570 for just $350

A top seller at Amazon, the Acer Aspire 8.9" AOA150-1570 netbook is on sale at J&R World as well, offered for $350 (sapphire blue color).

This has the usual specs of the "stereotypical 2008 netbook", if such a monster exists. So here we go, it has the Intel Atom N270 (1.6 GHz) processor, 1GB memory, 120gb hard disk, Intel GMA950 graphics module, wireless, webcam, etc, etc, etc. The operating system is every Vista-haters favorite, XP Home. And this is quite lightweight, at a mere 2.2 pounds.

Oops! We forgot the display! It is an 8.9" diagonal WSVGA (1024 x 600) CrystalBrite TFT LCD. Not bad considering the screen size and the trade-off of readability :-)
