I know, I know, the netbook market is slowly but surely dying – it cannot be helped, as tablets have more or less taken over the world simply because they have gotten better, more affordable and powerful, but does that mean the netbook market is far from finished? Acer does not think so, where $297 will net you an Acer Aspire One Happy 2 which has been touted to be a really great value where netbooks are concerned.
This 10.1″ device will carry high end specifications in the world of netbooks, and the colors certainly help the Happy 2 live up to its namesake. Apart from being built in a rather solid manner, the keyboard might be rather diminutive compared to a full sized keyboard, but that does not mean it is going to be any harder to type on.
Underneath the hood lies an Intel Atom N570 1.66GHz processor, where it will be accompanied by 1GB RAM, store up to 250GB of data thanks to its built-in hard drive, a 6-hour battery life on power saver mode, and a resolution of 1,024 x 600 pixels on its 10.1″ display. Any takers?RELATED
