I am not a big fan of alternative OS’; I prefer to use what I know and what my software works with in the form of one flavor or another of Windows. I do admit that Android has my interest piqued and I would like to play with the OS a bit. If you feel the same way, the Acer Aspire One with Android and Windows XP is available for pre-order now.
Amazon.com is offering the netbook for pre-order at $349.99 with free shipping. That is a great price considering the machines has both Android and Windows. Other specs include a 10.1-inch screen, Intel Atom N280 processor, 1GB of RAM, and a 160GB HDD.
The machine weighs about 2.8 pounds and measures in at 8 x 10.2 x 1 inches. Power for the machine comes from a 6-cell battery that promises 9 hours of runtime per charge. This machine is the perfect way for those curious about Android to try it out.
