's Aspire One netbook
line just keeps growing, and now it's getting more colorful. Too often, notebooks are released in the same black plastic color, and occasionally, you'll find a red one, a blue one or a green one. But a pastel one? Not too often that you see that.
The new Aspire One Happy range is for those who would prefer softer tones on their netbook, and while it's not marketed towards kids, it probably could be. The machine is available in the UK in Candy Pink, Lavender Purple, Lime Green and Hawaii Blue, and it has a 10.1" WSVGA display, Windows 7, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, 2GB of RAM, a 250GB hard drive, and 8-hours of battery life. It measures just 24mm thick and weighs only 1.25kg, and Intel's Atom N450 is powering things.
There's also a GMA 3150 GPU under there, so it's probably not well suited for gaming. But at £249.99, it's one of the cheaper options out there as well.
