At first glance, Acer's Aspire One Happy is a traditional netbook — 10.1-inch, 1024x600 screen; 250GB hard drive; 1GB RAM and the incredibly restrictive Windows 7 Starter Edition.
The vertical screen resolution is a pain, especially since 1366x768 netbooks are now floating around. It's also not as sharp as one would expect, creating blurry text on screen that seems as if it's out of focus. Adjusting ClearType helps, but never really resolves the issue.
There are a few things that stand out, apart from the fluoro red, green, blue and purple colours available. One is the dual-core Atom N550 processor, clocked at 1.5GHz. Another is the Elantech touch pad, capable of two-finger scroll. The thing that really stands out though is the pre-boot environment — the Happy, you see, comes pre-packed with Android.
