Acer Aspire One
Heads up for anyone looking for a netbook: Woot is offering the Acer Aspire One today for a really good price. The offer is up for the next 24 hours, as is traditional with Woot.

If you're in Australia, keep in mind that (1) it's in US dollars and (2) they only ship to the US, therefore you will need a helpful American friend to intercept and forward the parcel to you.

I've got one of these babies in blue and she's the bomb. Or... more of a firecracker, really. Small, sleek, and perfect for my needs. Don't expect to go blasting zombies on it, now, but if you just need something portable for surfing or writing, this won't let you down.

Also if you've got great big bear fingers like Joe, this is not the machine for you.

yay for your icon!

Weird that they say refurbished... but that's still a great price, and with a guarantee I'll bet! Seen those things in action... awesome stuff! I guess they can run just about any operating system too!

Re: yay for your icon!

I didn't even know, before ordering, that apparently they've gotten Mac OS/X to run on it -- and run good.

I'm stunned. ;F

I'm actually after one of these... but the 8" version is really what I'm after. This is at once frustrating and incredibly tempting. ;)

I went to Radio Shack where they had the same model on display. It was great. I ordered. :(

They're lovely, aren't they? I adore mine.
