This month I went out and bought an Acer Aspire One from Staples. For some reason they were blowing them out at $375 and less. I got the last one at my neighborhood store and it appeared that there were few left in the city. I’d been hemming and hahing over what to buy when I saw this one just sitting there–take me! I checked the specs and decided that for this price I had to get it now.
It turns out this was a great decision. Not only because I love my new mini laptop – I can put it in my
handbag and take it with me everywhere – but because the price has zoomed. There was a half page in our local paper on the weekend advertising a lesser model (half the RAM with more HD) for $499. I also checked out Amazon at $499.99 US. So I got a great deal!!

If I was going to pick a color though, I’d probably go with the white to hide the fingerprints. The glossy finish tends to get a lot of smudges on it and for someone with OCD, it’s a lot of stress to keep it looking shiny and new….
This computer is also great for Skyping as it comes with a built-in webcam and microphone. I’ve had conference calls on it and even done support calls as far away as Romania. The sound through my headphones is great – better than my home phone. Also once I decide on my Internet stick, I can make phone calls from anywhere on my Skype and eliminate my long distance charges.
Life is Good!!
