The Aspire One uses an Intel Atom processor. Clocked at 1.6Ghz its not Dual Core but is hyperthreading. Uses sod all battery power though meaning you get more life. Plus the One is ultra small and portable. I got one and its great.

would never touch an Acer again tbh, no matter how tempting the spec or price. Had one 2 years ago that cost me £500+. The right hinge on the top snapped twice, including the screen ribbon or w.e snapping so it didnt work. And one time the lid actually coming off at one side. Rubbish, i took care of it but it kept breaking, they wouldnt fix it after the second time, and the screen went,first producing lines all over the screen then all of it went so i cant see anything. So in my drawer it sits, it made more sense to buy a new laptop than pay the £200 they wanted to fix it.

Currently using this one http://www.comet.co.uk/shopcomet/product/501441/FUJITSU-SIEMENS-AMILO-LI-2735/tab/specification#spec

like ubuntu, no need to learn kubuntu, dont use servers soo..

Tis a nice little bit of software, specially as seen as you can load it from a CD and dont have to install it :D
ah well you see I have one of the new Dell T75 or T100 servers I got free a couple of months back.
Dell were pushing Virtualisation, Server 2k8 and their partnerships with Suse Linux and AMD so we all got nice freebies.
Throw a 64bit Ubuntu on it and their my project :)
