Acer Aspire One Intel Atom N270 Netbook on Clearance

The Acer Aspire One running the Intel Atom N270 processor is currently on clearance over at Amazon. As it runs the Intel Atom N270 processor, it is classed as being slightly older due to the launch of the Intel Atom N450 netbooks recently.

The netbook it’s self is still decent though with the N270 processor running at 1.6GHz. The netbook has 1GB of DDR2 memory, a 160GB SATA drive that spins at 5400RPM. For connectivity it has wireless built in that connects at 801.11b/g speeds.

The netbook runs the Windows 7 Starter operating system and the battery has a capacity of 2200mAh. The downside is with a netbook with just a 3-cell battery is that it does have a fairly low battery life of just over 3 hours which compared to the ASUS 1005PE that has over 14 hours of usage on a single charge, it seems kind of puny. However, the ASUS 1005PE does cost around $100 more, but you do get a slightly faster processor, larger hard drive and wireless N built in.

The Acer Aspire One N270 (older) netbook is available here costing $268.51.

If you want a little more power I’d recommend going for an Intel Atom N450 netbook with a number of them being available here.

However, if you only need a netbook to get you online while you sit in front of the TV, or just want access to documents and email/web while on the move the Acer Aspire One running the N270 will be fine.
