Acer Aspire One
Acer Aspire One is a line of subcompact notebook computers, or netbooks, released in July 2008 by Acer Inc. It is based on the Intel Atom platform, which consists of the Intel Atom N270 processor, Intel 945GSE Express chipset and Intel 82801GBM (ICH7M) I/O controller. The line is manufactured for Acer Inc. by Quanta Computer, and is available in several shell colors: seashell white, sapphire blue, golden brown, onyx black, and coral pink. Its main competitors in the low-cost netbook market are the Asus Eee PC line and the Dell Inspiron Mini 9. An industry newsletter reports that Acer and Quanta have had a falling out and production of the Acer Aspire One line will be shifting to other manufacturers in 2009
