Acer's Aspire One: now officially XP-compatible

You'll need your own copy of Windows of course, but a trip to Asus' support site will now allow you to tweak a standard Windows install for full compatibility with the One's components.

You can also find the latest Bios, version 3114.

Acer has two pages for the One: one for the 110 model - the one with the 8GB SSD - and another for the hard drive equipped 150. The 110 page is the one we've mentioned above; you can go straight to the 150 page here.
