  • Memory: 2GB
  • Processor: Intel® Atom™ CPU N270 @ 1.60GHz × 2
  • Graphics: Intel® 945GME x86/MMX/SSE2
  • Disk: 217.2 GB SSD

Original specs:

  • Model: KAV60
  •  Memory: 992.3 MiB
  • Processor: Intel® Atom™ CPU N270 @ 1.60GHz × 2

Bishop is a 32-bit Acer Aspire One mini-laptop ("netbook") that I (Strypey) bought in 2010.

Operating System

Bishop was sold as a dual-boot of Windows XP and Android. It has been tested with many variations of free code operating system , but the main day-to-day OS used on it is Trisquel GNU/Linux. First 6.0 ("Touatis") and  7.0 ("Belenos"), mainly with the default GNOME Fallback desktop although other desktops were sometimes used including OpenBox and Enlightenment (E17), and as of early 2019, Trisquel 8.0 ("Flidas") with its Mate desktop.
