"The company previously estimated that the 10.1-inch Aspire One AOD150 would hit U.S. shelves in mid-February, but Acer is rolling out the netbook Monday, about a week ahead of schedule.

"The new model replaces Acer's previous Aspire One offering, which included an 8.9-inch display. Aside from the larger screen, it also brings one other major difference: It is only available from Acer preloaded with Microsoft's Windows XP Home operating system. Previously, customers had the option of ordering a system preloaded with either Windows XP Home or Linpus Linux Lite."
