Acer’s Aspire netbook is taking on a feature that’s typically reserved for pricier PCs such as the Dell Latitude Z: In addition to Windows, the Acer Aspire One AOD250 has a lighter, Linux-based operating system, in this case Android, that you can boot quickly and optionally. This comes in handy as an “always-on” feature, letting you access e-mail and the Web even as Windows is still starting up. Techtree reports that the Android operating system boots up in seconds .

Aside from its dual-boot feature, the AOD250 is a standard-issue netbook. It’s got the 10.1-inch display, a 1.66 GHz Atom N280 CPU, 1GB of RAM, a 160GB hard drive and a built-in Webcam. Sadly, there’s no wireless-N, just 801.22b/g. But it does have a six-cell battery, getting five or six hours of life on a charge. And fashionistas will delight in the availability of four different colors. Pricing’s reasonable too, with the Acer Aspire One AOD250 on sale in the US for just $350. [via Techtree]
