Acer's Aspire One gets official

Just in case you're not already totally sick of all these tiny laptops, Acer's Aspire One is finally official. You saw our hands-on from the show floor at Computex, now the full specs:

  • 8.9-inch 1024 x 600 LED-backlit display

  • 1.6GHz Atom N270

  • 512MB DDR2 SDRAM (expandable)

  • 1.3 megapixel camera, SDHC and multi-format media readers

  • 802.11b/g, Ethernet, three USB 2.0, VGA, and 3.5mm audio out

  • One free mini PCI slot for WWAN

  • 80GB hard drive (with XP) or 8GB solid state (with Linux)

  • 2.5 or 5 hours on 3 or 6-cell batteries in XP model, 3 or 7 hours on Linux

  • 1kg (2.2 pounds)

It should be available overseas this month in blue or white (with black, red, and pink models coming soon), and supposedly US release later this year. At the outset you'll be ponying up £199 (~$400 US) for the Linux model, and £299 (~$600 US) for XP.
