Aspire One Now in German sales channels.

Posted on 12 June 2008 by



Acer have a big advantage in the netbook race. Pre-established sales channels and partners.

The Aspire One is already showing up in price comparison engines in Germany with the base model being advertised for 329 Euro (8GB, Linux, 512MB) which is just 50 Euro more than the Eee PC 701 4G! The high-end Linux model (80GB, 1GB) for 399 Euro which is 40 Euro less than the ‘old’ and less equipped Eee PC 900. Availability looks like 4-7 weeks although one reseller is quoting 10 days.

Because of its size (smaller than HP2133 and MSI Wind,) style, dual SD card slots, availability and low-low price, I won’t be surprised if this ends up as one of the most popular netbook choices of 2008.

    the price is not correct. here in germany most traders offers the one for €329 (8gb ssd) and €359 (80gb hdd and 1gb ram) for the linux models. the xp version costs €399. you can also get versions with 1.5gb ram.

    The only thing missing from the UMPCportal device database, is a zoomed-in image, with 360 degree view around. Maybe it is there and I missed it, if not then how hard would that be to do?

    Is the warranty European?

    Anyone seen prices in the UK yet?

    Also, how’s the keyboard compared to the MSI Wind?

    It looks like the N270 is actually Silverthorne based, but using the higher power GTL bus. The N230 I think is Diamondville.

  8. Zeke says:

    Any idea when this will be available over in the states? This is looking like the best bang for the buck in terms of price and performance!

  9. Jared says:

    Any idea if this will becoming to Australia/New Zealand.

    Hey!, I’ve been looking for a site like yours since last Friday. The last place I searched (should be the first) was in Google, using the keywords “Price Engine”. Anyway, it was worth the search because I really like this website and your post regarding One Now in German sales channels. | UMPCPortal – The Ultra Mobile Computing reference site looks very interesting for me. Definitely Stumbled!
