AT&T pushes out 3 new computing devices which can use their Pay-As-You-Go rates
The first device is a regular laptop, the Acer Aspire AS1830, which essentially packs on a built-in 3G modem to keep you busy on the go without sacrificing some raw power. It's not like the handful of netbooks that the carrier already offers, but this full fledged laptop features an Intel Core i3 processor, 11.6” display, 1.3-megapixel camera, 2GB of RAM, 250GB hard drive, and Windows 7 Home Premium. Naturally, this will easily be more than equipped in handling the most daunting of tasks – like running video editing software. Since it offers some hefty internals, the laptop is priced at $239.99 with a 2-year contract.
On the other hand, we're greeted with two more netbooks, the Acer Aspire One 532h and Dell Inspire Mini 10D, which should be a bit more budget friendly. In terms of specs, they both feature a 10.1” display, Intel N450 Atom processor, and Windows 7 Starter Edition. Priced at $39.99 with you signature down on a 2-year agreement, it should be more than enough to get you by some of the most common and simple tasks.
Now the great thing about these three new computing devices is that you can choose from three different Pay-As-You-Go options which start at $15 for their DataConnect Day Pass which offers 100MB of data. Additionally, you've got $30 for the DataConnect Week Pass which gives you an allotment of 300MB. Finally, there is the $50 DataConnect Month Pass which should get you by with its 1GB of data usage.
