Acer has updated the Aspire One netbook line with a collection of new Aspire One Happy 2 netbooks which come in a variety of festive and fruitful colors. While you won’t be picking up one of these to use at work, well most of us won’t, the Happy 2 netbooks are definitely eye catching.
The Happy 2 netbooks look like a summer party on the outside, but you can get down to business with the Intel Atom N570 dual core processor, 1GB RAM, 1 250GB hard drive, 10.1″ display and 93% full size keyboard.
The netbook is an inch thin and weighs 2.5 pounds, so it can slide into a summer beach bag quite easily. If you need to touch base with the folks back home, hop on Skype with the included .3MP webcam. The Aspire One Happy 2 series include Windows 7 Starter and Microsoft Office Starter (including Word and Excel with ads).
The Acer Aspire One Happy 2 netbooks come in four colors which are definitely an acquired taste.
- Banana Cream
- Blueberry Shake
- Papaya Milk
- Strawberry Yogurt
Netbooks like these won’t replace your full fledge computer, but thanks to the dual core Atom N570 processor you should be able to tackle numerous work tasks like Word, Excel and web browsing without waiting around for your computer to catch up. The Happy 2 netbooks will also handle video playback with the integrated video card, a task which single core netbooks usually have trouble with.
You can purchase the Acer Aspire One Happy 2 netbooks are available starting today with a suggested price of $269. At this price, the Happy 2 series of netbooks is particularly attractive considering the dual core Atom processor.
If you need to get a lot of mobile work done, you will be better suited with a larger notebook like the MacBook Air, Samsung 9 Series or MSI X370, but all of those notebooks have significantly higher prices. If you want a capable and bright netbook for around $250, the Happy netbooks are worth a look.
