Pink Laptops - Acer Aspire One AOA150-1690 8.9-Inch Pink Netbook

By Troy Richards

Although it is of general consensus that Asus is the pioneer of mini-laptops/netbooks, Acer is slowly but steadily establishing itself as formidable competitor for the Asus Eee series. The Acer Aspire One AOA150-1690 8.9-Inch netbook was one of the best-selling netbooks last year and shows no signs of decline in 2009. Here is a quick review of this model in Pink.

There are only a handful of laptop manufacturers out there that produces pink laptops. Even if they do, the shade of pink that is use is always quite distinct from other models. The pink Acer Aspire One AOA150-1690 8.9-Inch netbook boasts a darker shade a pink. It is not a completely pink laptop as the frame around the scree, the sides and the keyboard, is white in color. The outer casing has a slightly glossy pink surface with the Acer logo discreetly etched on one of the corners.

Personally, I would much prefer if the netbook was in completely in pink. But then again, that may make it look too much like a toy. Don't be fooled by its casual appearance as its pretty casing bellies a host of impressive features.

For starters, it runs on Intel's Atom Processor (1.6ghz) and has 1GB of RAM (upgradeable to maximum of 2GB). This gives you more than enough processing power as the netbook runs on Windows XP home (like all other netbooks). It is wi-fi ready and comes with a web cam for video conferencing. It has a 160GB hard drive and a 3 cell battery (lasting up to 2.5 hours on a single charge). For longer battery life, you can always upgrade to a 6 cell battery.
