It will also either come with a 512MB or 1GBMB RAM. The Acer Aspire One would also be loaded with a CrystalEye webcam, a nand flash module of 8GB or an 80GB internal HDD. It will also support SD, MMC, Memory Stick, Memory Stick Pro, xD-picture card. So, that would give you many options for storage.

In addition, the Acer Aspire One would also feature the Smart File Manager that instantly and seamlesly merges extra storage from any SD card inserted in the second SD card slot.

    That thing is sexy, this is what ultra-portable laptops should be, and is priced perfect. I really wanted an Eee because it was the original, but the 901 and 1000 are way over priced, you do get a lot, but this thing sort of takes the cake at under 400.
