My son Daniel has been begging me for a netbook computer for about as long as they’ve existed. Now that he is a little older we decided to surprise him for his birthday. Thanks to a recommendation from Notebooks.com Publisher Xavier Lanier, we picked out the Acer Aspire One AOD250-1842. It was going for about $300 from Amazon. It is not the latest and greatest that you can buy in a netbook, but getting a kid’s perspective is kind of interesting.
Daniel was pretty happy, as you can see in the video. He opened it up at his grandmother’s house on Saturday. After a few days with the Acer netbook, he gave us his impressions of his new toy on camera.
