It looks like Acer is abut to change that, well on one model at least, with the Acer Aspire One Happy.
This is without a doubt the the most fun netbook model names I have ever seen, and equally the easiest to remember. It sure beats for example the Acer Aspire One AOD521!
The Acer Aspire One Happy looks to be a re-branded Acer Aspire One D255 with a number of bright color options. While it might not be an ideal business looking netbook, it sure does look lively, and I guess happy!
The display bezel and keyboard have are both white, while the lid and palm rest area have the bright colorful finish.
Just as the the Acer AOD255 the Acer Happy is powered by the new dual core 1.5GHz Intel Atom N550 processor, along with 1GB of RAM, a 250GB hard drive, and runs Windows 7 Stater Edition.
Acer have yet to confirm this model, and it could still change, but I hope they keep it. This information comes from reliable Acer source, Macles.
The Aspire One Happy is now available in the UK from Amazon UK from just £229!
