The Acer Aspire One Happy has finally made it to UK after making appearances at various other destinations in Europe. The Acer Aspire One Happy was unveiled at stores in Hungary and in Spain in the previous month. The price tag of the mini-laptop in the UK will be about £250 (equivalent of $396) and $400 for the buyers in the US.
Acer has planned something more for the buyers of Acer Aspire One Happy: The machine will feature dual boot Windows 7 and Google Android 2.1 codenamed Eclair. The company has still not made it clear as to whether they will stick to the same strategy in other countries to which the Happy is expected to be introduced, but the rumors are hinting that the machine sporting dual core processors will come with Android on all the forthcoming notebooks. Either of the two processors will be made available with the system - one is single core Atom N450 processor unit or a dual core Atom N550 chip. We would definitely recommend spending little extra and getting the N550 for a significantly faster performance.
The netbook has screen size of 10.1-inch with possible 1024 x 600 pixels of maximum resolution, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and 3G as optional. The Acer Aspire One Happy can be upgraded to up to 2GB of RAM and a hard drive of 250GB storage memory. The system will come with series of colors viz. pink, purple, lime green, or light blue lids. These features should come as a positive factor for the buyers.
A last minute update from Liliputing says the Happy will be introduced in Italy next month starting at 349 Euros. That becomes much expensive at about $487. That machine will run Wwin 7 Starter edition in addition to Éclair.
