If you're looking for a very portable laptop at a low price, your options are usually quite limited. You either have underpowered netbooks, or you end up having to pay a lot more money! There's good news though -- right now at The Source, you can find an Acer Aspire One AO756 Series 11.6" Laptop with an Intel Sandy Bridge Dual Core processor, 4GB RAM, 320GB hard drive, and WIndows 7 for $299.99! While this is listed as a netbook, the processor is significantly faster than what you find in laptops normally classed as netbooks. Take a closer look at the features (taken from Acer's product page):
- Intel Dual Core B877 (2MB L2 cache, 1.4 GHz)
- 4GB DDR3 SDRAM
- 320GB 5400RPM SATA Hard Drive
- 11.6" 1366x768 display
- Windows 7 Home Premium
- Wireless B/G/N
- HDMI Out
- No optical drive
- 4-cell battery
A Sandy Bridge powered dual core Celeron processor is a far cry from Intel's netbook Atom processors. This laptop should be a lot zippier all around. At 3lbs and a $299.99 price point, this looks like a great option if portability and low price are at the top of your must-have list. Officially the deal ends on September 5, but we think this could sell out before then.
