The notebook comes with just 8 gigabytes of storage space, but features two storage card slots. It also has a VGA port, Ethernet jack and USB slots. OpenOffice.org Suite and Firefox 2 come installed with the device, along with a built-in messenger application that works with Yahoo and Google messengers.
The battery of the Aspire One mini notebook lasts for 2 1/2 hours when browsing the Internet or editing documents. A review by PCWorld states that the keyboard provides solid key response and has wide gaps between the buttons. As such, PCWorld claims adults should have no difficulty typing on the device despite its small size. However, the mousepad buttons are on either side of the touchpad, making documents difficult to edit.
Although Acer no longer sells the Aspire One mini notebook, the company still offers lightweight notebooks under the Aspire name. Some of the newer products double as a tablet and laptop. The screens are detachable from their keyboards and usable as touchscreen tablets.Learn more about Computers & Hardware
