I'm not familiar w/ the Acer 10in models, but the 8.9in screen is fine for me, for what I use it for.
If I can make one final suggestion... Stay away from the SSD models. Prior to getting my AAO, I had an Asus eee900. I really liked it, but the SSD was slow, not to mention very small(16gig). I dealt with it for about a month, got annoyed, sold it, and bought my Aspire One, which has a 160gig hard drive, and I love it. Only downside, is it came w/ XP.
I nuked XP(but kept the restore partition for some reason), installed Ubuntu 8.10, and it really runs well on it.
Not sure if you're in the states, but TigerDirect.com, has some good deals on refurbished AAO's.
Good luck in your decision
