Acer the Big Winner in Netbook War?

While ASUS set the cheap, small notebook market alight with its Eee PC lineup, it looks like Acer is actually capitalizing more on the movement. For the month of September, Acer has reportedly outsold all other vendors in notebooks, helped in large part by 1.2-1.3 million Aspire Ones. ASUS was able to move around 700, 000 Eee PCs during the same time.

I spent some quality time on the Aspire One earlier this year, waiting for my M1330 to be repaired, and found it to be a very competent netbook, although I still don’t think the netbook form factor is quite right for me.
