Acer gets netbook Happy

Pastel colours to 'fill your life with excitement and joy'. Oh dear

Boost IT visibility and business value

Christmas approaches, and Acer is ready with a set of kid-friendly pastel-hued netbooks ready for parents to lay down 250 notes on.

The machine is the Aspire One Happy, and it's a standard Windows 7-based netbook - with one exception: it also comes with Android 2.1 as a fast-boot, quick-acccess-to-the-web operating system.

Acer Aspire One Happy

The Happy comes in "four delightful colours that fill your life with excitement and joy" - no, we didn't make that quote up. Said shades are "Candy Pink, Lavender Purple, Lime Green and Hawaii Blue" and they "transform this netbook into a fashion statement".

So maybe not just for kids but for ladies who lunch too.

There's a choice of Intel Atom N550 dual-core or single-core 450 processor - the latter is the one in the £250 model - plus 2GB of memory, 250GB of hard drive storage and Wi-Fi. Bluetooth and 3G are optional extras.

The Aspire One Happy is available now. ®
