The Acer Aspire One model is a notebook I recently bought from PC world, it was on offer for £199. I needed a cheap notebook to carry out simple tasks such as using MS office and run some simple accounts software. I also wanted Wi-Fi to access the internet via my home PC router, so this notebook seemed ideal for what I was looking for.
The notebook itself comes with Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition O/S. It has WiFi, Fast Ethernet, and an ultra compact 8.9" WSVGA TFT Screen for crystal clear viewing. The Acer Aspire One A150 has an Intel Atom N270 Processor that runs at 1.6GHz for professional mobility.

Overall I was happy with the purchase of the Acer Aspire One A150 as it was exactly what I was looking for at a good price of £199, normally RRP £299. I've not had any problems with the notebook and is still running fine. I wouldn't advice it to play games on as the graphics card would be unable to handle it. One let down is that it doesn't have Bluetooth built in. I didn't need it as I have a Bluetooth dongle but for people who don't it should have been built in as standard. I should also mention the notebook comes in 2 colours which I know of black (Bb) and black white (Bw) the codes are in the model name. The battery lasts me around 4-5 hours which is quite good. I would recommend this notebook for light to medium regular use.
Summary: Good Notebook For Light to Medium regular use
