The Acer Aspire One has two flash drive slots, one on either side. One, an SD card reader, is intended as storage expansion for the system which can be used to boost the 8GB built-in flash storage. The second slot is a five-in-one card reader that accepts SD, MMC, RS-MMC, Memory Stick and xD cards that the system will recognise as part of the hard drive.
The Acer Aspire One will be on UK shelves on 10 July, said Acer, although the manufacturer is also working to push the device out through mobile-phone operators as well as standard retail channels.
The subnotebook will not be Acer's only Linux push, though — according to Morbello, the company will be putting open-source operating systems on its higher-end laptops as well.
