Harvey Normans are doing the Acer Aspire One now for 299. Just saw an Ad
on TV. Don't know if they have many. A container full must have arrived
My kids love the thing which is why I bought it. Even with 512MB of RAM it
is fast. It compares favourably with a desktop and that is saying
something for a notebook.
Another though struck me, how many of the people who bought the laptops
realize they run Linux. It looks a bit different but is easy to use. Aunt
Tillie could use this and that's for sure.
