Are you thinking of buying a touch tablet? Wait, if you’re not looking for a touch experience and don’t want to spend around Rs. 40k then you might want to look into this.
Acer just launched a new Aspire One Happy 2 netbook series in India with 10.1 inch LED display. They have revamped their existing One Happy series through hardware configuration. Another interesting thing about One Happy 2 netbook series is, availability of colors. It has about 4 new funky colors & textured graphics to choose from – making it a new gadget trend.
There is no other significant change in terms of form factor of these netbooks compared to Acer’s earlier netbook series.
But, this notebook series offers dual-boot options with Windows 7 Starter Edition and Google Android. So, if Android is available on a 10.1″ netbook with 1.66 GHz dual core processor, 1 GB RAM for approx. Rs 16,000/- then it is a deal for many of us who can sacrifice some features of tablets and it would be similar to 60% of discount by not buying recently launched tablets like HTC Flyer, Motorola Xoom, iPad 2, BlackBerry Playbook. Isn’t it? I know we cannot compare these two things but then I see Netbook useful & productive than tablets minus multi-touch and motion sensing.
Its LED display saves about 22% power compared to other netbook displays.
