ACER ONE HAPPY
Acer, $499 acer.com.au
★★ The Acer One Happy is the computer in the garish outfit. Some may love the choice of four outrageous colours, but others will be put off. Under the hood, two elements stand out. Firstly, it has a 1.5GHz Intel Atom dual core processor, so it will pedal along OK for web browsing and light lifting tasks. Secondly, it comes preloaded not only with Windows 7 Starter, but a second operating system, Google Android, which soaks up 4GB from the notebook’s 250GB hard drive. However, the Android interface is too clunky and there doesn’t seem to be a reason for adding it to the pretty basic machine.
