You do not have to be a genius to understand that the netbook market has suffered and will continue to suffer with the onslaught of tablet devices. However, that does not stop Acer from launching yet another model, the Aspire One E100. The company hopes that its Android / Windows dual-boot feature will help it sell, but are you convinced?
Maddy Rowe From Online Social Media has managed to get some limited details on the new device, and what we can see the specs are just standard – this would have to be the reason why Acer went with a dual-boot mode, as they needed it to be different.
The 10.1-inch netbook comes with an Atom processor – not certain what speed – 1GB of RAM and 250GB hard drive. Is it me or could we be talking about most of the other netbooks on the market? Having the choice of Windows or Android has to be a nice touch, as different users want different things. If only they would offer Mac OS X.
Donald Melanson from Engadget says that Acer is aiming the E100 towards the education market, and you can see that there is space for school branding. There are no details as to a price or release date, but it needs to be reasonably low in this competitive market.
