We already know you want an Eee PC 901 -- everybody does. But you also want the Acer Aspire One, don't you, you Internet-loving netbook fiend? We happen to have them both in the house, so we thought we'd stick them side by side and write a few words that'll help you choose which is right for you.
The Eee PC 901 has already wowed us. Its 8.9-inch screen, 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor, 1GB of RAM and 20GB solid-state hard drive -- plus 20GB of free online storage -- is pretty much perfect for this sort of product, as is the 4+ hours of real-world battery life from the 6600mAh battery pack. The £319 price tag isn't bad either.
The Aspire One is available in a wider range of configurations, including a £220 entry-level model. But here's how it stacks up against the Eee PC 901, pound for pound: 8.9-inch screen, 1.6GHz Atom CPU, 1GB of RAM, and an 80GB mechanical hard drive -- which offers more storage, but is more fragile. The One also packs an optional 3G module for surf-anywhere Web access. The 2200mAh battery simply sucks, though -- you'll get two hours at best.
Which is best? It's a close call, but we reckon the Eee might just have the edge -- provided you're not typing anything. Anyway -- enough with the words. Have a look at the pictures, then tell us what you think in comments below. -Rory Reid
