I've been an avid fan of Netbooks ever since I picked up my very own 1000HE by ASUS. I love these little machines, as they are perfect to bring around for travel, work and/or school. With the recent release of Acer's new Aspire One with dual-booting operating systems, I couldn't resist but to pick one up for myself.

Acer's Aspire One AOD250-1613- Dual booting Windows XP and Android. Android, as an operating system for a Netbook is a pretty fresh and new idea, so I'll give it a run.

Asthetics/External Features:
============================
Unpacking the box, the Acer Aspire One came with your standard warranty, battery, AC adapter/charger, manual, and of course the Netbook itself.

For initial impressions, this Netbook is light. Much lighter than my ASUS 1000HE. Sadly, it is still sporting a normal Netbook keyboard (no chiclet keys).

At the bottom of the Netbook, there are removable panels for the chance to upgrade RAM and quite possibly the HDD. I remember earlier Netbook models being unable to upgrade RAM, which was a pretty big bummer. Fear not, if you wish to upgrade to 2GB of RAM on the Aspire One or even an SSD as your new HDD, it shouldn't be too difficult. This Netbook also features a mini-SATA slot, so if you want even more HDD space, you can slap in another SSD in as well.

With a quick view of the sides, (left side) you have your standard Audio I/O ports, VGA port, LAN port, 1 USB port, (right side) Memory card reader, 2 USB ports, Power port and a safety lock port.

Opening up the Netbook, it looks like any other Aspire One, the trackpad features multi-touch functionality supporting pinch-zoom and scrolling.

I'm trying to write a novel, and it's important for me to have a portable machine, such that I can whip it out of my purse whenever there's a minute to type a paragraph or two.

I had great hopes of finding something on the Android "instant boot" that I could use, some sort of notepad or scratchpad where I could just type, and have my words saved to XP for editing later. So far, no such luck. I will keep hoping for that app. For now it is quicker to just boot XP and wait the extra minute.

As for the other features, It's an impressive little book. Definitely portable, and I love the long battery life. The keys, though small, have a nice feel.

The only tinkering I did was to add the memory (worth it), get rid of the bloatware, and download something to make the touchpad less jumpy [...]

Now I'm good to go, and satisfied that I made a good choice.

The Acer XP/Android is a curious and capable netbook, and it makes a great companion to tote around when a larger, more hearty machine would be unnecessary. The model is equipped for standard performance, with 1GB RAM, 1.66GHz under the hood and a 160GB hard drive. Screen resolution is capped at 1024x600, barely enough for the crowded XP GUI but with a computer so small (and tinfoil for a graphics card) this is to be expected.

The hard drive is partitioned thrice, with the largest bit going to Windows XP, 4GB to Android (should you choose to install it with the bundled-in configuration tools) and another secret partition that contains the factory disk. With no optical drive, this is really the only way to restore any sort of Windows XP install, but that is to be expected. Some programs to manage all this data and the obligatory bloatware/adware round out the set, but these are easily ignored or removed.

Windows XP runs well enough on the machine, and most light tasks can be capably executed. The machine won't run everything well (forget Photoshop) and the odd netbook screen resolution means certain full-screen apps might not always render properly. It accomplishes what it sets out to, though, as media players, word processors, network apps and lightweight browsers bump along without a hitch.

Those who choose to dual-boot Android on this machine will be at first intrigued and then quickly bored, as the true limitations of this custom (yet infantile) cellphone OS shine through. Though it boots rather quickly (ten seconds!), you won't be able to accomplish much, as it only comes with software suitable for basic web and book-keeping tasks: a calendar, a browser, a gallery and basic media player.

While I am certainly curious to hear the other reviews about the android platform on a netbook, my experience so far has been great. I have had no problem setting up accounts or internet connections. I am writing this review while working off the android OS. Boot up time into android is 10-15 seconds plus another 3-4 to find a network. All told, you can go from pushing the power button to surfing the internet in under 30 seconds! Pretty cool. I would like to see what the battery power difference is if you are working solely in android.

I will readily admit that I know nothing about android and today is my first experience using it. I will leave it to the experts to discuss the good and the bad of android on the netbook. However, I can attest to the rapid boot up time.

So, as the title says "So far so good!"
