The Aspire One AOD255, as it's been dubbed, comes configured with both Google's Android platform and Microsoft's Windows XP OS -dual-booting netbook!
|On the hardware front, the AOD255 is a 10.1-inch netbook powered by an Intel Atom N450 processor. It has a 160GB hard drive, 1GB of DDR2 memory, and a 3-cell battery that can be upgraded to a 6-cell for those willing to plunk down an extra $75.
But it's the software that's the real draw here. Acer outfitted the AOD255 with its Acer Configuration Manager utility, which lets users choose which OS to boot. Android serves as a quick-booting OS, somewhat similar to SplashTop, whereas Windows XP is the main OS.
