Late last week we informed you on the official revealing of the 10″ Acer Aspire One, the successor the immensely successful 8.9″ Aspire One. We couldn’t yet confirm or deny any possible Linux model or SSD option, but we can now: Acer has stated that while during the initial launch there will only be a HDD/Windows version, it will soon be followed by an SSD/Linux model. The SSD will be 16GB in size, and the Linux distribution will – again – be Linpus. The Windows version will launch mid-February.

I really hope the new Asus EEEPC tablets will be like that.
A convertible 1000 with a fast SSD and long battery life is what I really want.
What is the point of an SSD version, really? Not that different battery life to the HDD version, roughly same weight, minuscule storage size, requiring having added precautions to minimize writing to disk, limited choice of OS… And is it really faster?
I have an 8GB SSD Acer Aspire One.
