Acer Aspire to reach record-low price
Best Buy this morning promised to have the least expensive full-size notebook ever in advance of Black Friday. Starting Wednesday, the retailer plans to sell an Acer Aspire notebook for $250, or below the price of many netbooks. The exact model is unnamed but should have a 2.2GHz Celeron, 2GB of RAM, a 160GB hard drive and Windows 7.
It's not mentioned how long the system will last on Best Buy shelves at the advertised price, though its appearance about two weeks before Black Friday, which this year falls on November 27th, suggests it will stay on sale through the holiday period rather than serve as a limited-quantity deal to get customers into stores.
