Default Windows 7 on an entry level netbook

The Acer Aspire One isnít cutting edge by any means, but nor is it aimed at the young, sporting an 8.9Ē screen and a keyboard suitable for fat fingered adults like myself. It has an Intel Atom N270 processor running at 1.6GHz, 1GB of RAM and a 160GB hard disk drive.

Video is powered by an onboard Mobile Intel 945 express chipset running at 1024x600 resolution. This chip is not DirectX 10 compliant, but thatís no deal-breaker. You wonít be running Crysis on this machine! I made a fresh Windows 7 installation instead of opting to upgrade the existing Windows XP, but started clean. The installation was successful without errors or problems arising and without any missing hardware drivers afterwards.
