The deal: Acer Aspire One AO534 - well rounded entry level netbook - $449.00
The Acer Aspire One AO532 for $449 is a well rounded entry level netbook, and the $25 gift card makes the price very reasonable. It has the Intel Atom N450, while a slow processor overall for an entry level netbook it’s the one you want. A 250GB hard drive is also great for this price. Windows 7 Starter is the netbook operating system of choice, as it sreamlines the network and device connectivity that was occasionally tricky with the now rather old Windows XP.
Onboard graphics, 1GB of RAM, and a 10.1in (1024x600 resolution) screen are normal for an entry level netbook; for these to be better, the price would need to increase. Nonetheless you’ll be surfing the internet and word processing without difficulties. The $25 gift card that you get on purchase of the netbook can be chosen from any of the following retailers; ABC Shop, Country Road, Dotti, Every Day Hero, Jay Jays, Red Cross, Sanity Music, or Village Cinemas (Village Gift Cards are only for Victoria).
This one is slight by netbook standards, weighing 1.2kg and measuring 258.5mm wide, 185mm deep, and 25.2mm thick. If you want an entry level netbook, this is the one to get by a mile.
