Daily deal – Acer Aspire One ultra portable computer $289.99

My daily deal for today is for another of those nifty little “Netbook” computers. This time, it’s the Acer Aspire One AOA110-1955.

The pint sized computer features an Intel Atom processor, running at a comfortable 1.6GHz. Also inside the machine is 512MB of memory and an 8GB solid state drive. Connectivity to the Internet is accomplished using a wired connection, or with the built in Wi-Fi interface.

Before you click “I want one”, I want to make sure you understand that this model of the Aspire One does not come with Windows. Instead, you get a special flavor of Linux. The Linux installation contains all the applications the average user might need; including OpenOffice and Mozilla Firefox.

The Acer Aspire One comes complete with a 3-cell battery pack, an AC adapter and a carrying pouch.

This machine normally retails for $329, but for just one day, you’ll be able to buy one from Woot.com for just $289.99 (+$5 shipping).

Remember, Woot.com deals are only available for one day, or until they run out of stock, so don’t wait too long.
