Acer Aspire One : The next well-known manufacturer to release a netbook was Acer, and its Linpus-based Aspire One became one of the most interesting models on the market. It had an 8GB solid state drive installed, but also included two SD memory card slots. One of those could be used to expand the internal storage of the unit by up to 12GB (although we only tested with a 4GB SD card at the time). It had an 8.9in screen, weighed only 900 grams, and despite being so small, was relatively easy to use. It cost $599 and only had 512MB of RAM, but there was also a Windows XP version available with 1.5GB of RAM and a 120GB hard drive for $699.
