If the thought of a dual-booting netbook puts a smile on your face, then you'll be happy to know that Acer's Aspire, um, "Happy" netbook is expanding its reach. Previously seen at Spanish and Hungarian retail sites, the Aspire Happy is now headed to the U.K.

Configurations include a single-core Atom N450 or dual-core Atom N550 processor, up to 2GB of memory, up to 250GB of hard drive space, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, optional 3G, and a variety of color options, including "Candy Pink," "Lavender Purple," "Lime Green," and "Hawaii Blue."
