Small, lightweight package with none of the netbook limitations

Summary: Having used a variety of laptops, from the Apple MacBook Pro MC118LL/A 15.4-Inch Laptop , to a 10" netbook, the Acer AS1410 has quite a few things going for it. Pros: 1) (Mostly) Full-sized keyboard. Still getting used to it, but it's not a challenge like smaller keyboards. 2) Processor. While it's not the 3Ghz processor I'm used to in my desktop, it beats the heck off of netbooks which were sold in early-mid 2009. 3) Screen-size and resolution.
Summary: Great little mini-notebook that's better than my netbook. I wish this product had been available back when I bought my netbook. With the Acer Aspire AS1410 I don't need a netbook. Faster processor, more memory, larger hard drive and 11.6" monitor. The new models with a dual-core processor should be even better.
Summary: I bought this model because it has a beefier Core2 Solo SU3500 CPU than the typical Atom based Netbook. I also researched the newer low-cost Intel Celeron M 743 that has 2 cores, but less cache (1MB vs 3MB) and double the power dissipation, i figured the Core2 Solo processor in this one hit a good place between performance and battery life. Having played with this computer for a while, i really like it. Very portable with a nice sharp screen.
Summary: If you are looking for a netbook that is light and small, Acer Aspire AS1410-8414 is the choice. It is a netbook with steroids. I am waiting on Windows 7 free upgrade CD to see how it performs. I actually repartitioned it and install Ubuntu 9.04 when I review this. Ubuntu 9.04 supports all the hardware (mic, webcam, etc), and the only thing I have to do is to switch the hard drive to IDE in the BIOS. Ubuntu is awesome, it takes about 2 minutes to boot and shutdown.
Decent performance, good formfactor and trackpad - keyboard is lacking

Summary: I bought this unit because I needed something in addition to my normal laptop mainly for traveling purposes. The screen is bright and sharp and the unit is relatively portable and aesthetically pleasing. Performance while performing simple documenting editing and viewing web-pages was more than adequate and the system felt much more responsive than the Atom-based systems I have tried.
Summary: I've had my computer for about a week now and am very satisfied with its capabilities. I've used faster computers, but not of this size and frankly I didn't buy this for the speed. My primary uses for my Acer are e-mail, surfing, IM, and the occassional Office application work (such as typing this in Word to make sure I don't embarrass myself with spelling errors!).
Summary: After my son and I good a fair amount of research, I decided on the Acer 1410. I've had it about a month and use it almost every day. I was using a older machine with a larger screen, but have gotten used to the smaller screen, and have no concerns with it. I like the full size keyboard, reducing the fat-fingering when I type.
Summary: Beautifully presented netbook which is really easy to use. The full size keyboard is a boon and the screen although small is very clear and you soon do not notice the compact size. Mouse pad has always been a problem for me and this machine is no different - must be an age thing so I use a cordless mini mouse. One star short of a full five, because it has twice not opened up properly, requiring me to remove the battery and reinsert to enable me to boot up.
Хороший нотик, но через 4 года начал активно тормозить

Excerpt: Мне этот нетбук достался в подарок, и сначала я не могла на него нарадоваться. Красивый, не чёрный, не серый, в интернете летает, фильмы не скачивала, смотрела он-лайн, лёгкий, эргономичный - словом, чудо. Не помню, что там стояло изначально, я поставила Висту, поставила старый Ворд - в общем сделала всё, как мне удобно.
Pros: Красивый, удобный, лёгкий, относительно недорогой, неплохая звуковая карта (с наушниками)
Cons: С четвёртого года жизни начал тормозмть; очень слабая вэб-камера, пользоваться практически невозможно
