Acer Aspire One 522

broncopasler, CNET
2 September 2011
  • Summary: It plays HD 1080p with no problems, if you get rid of all the bloatware it comes with and upgrade it to 2GB of RAM. Simple as that. You can squeeze a respectable 6 hours out of the 6 cell battery (came with the unit, in my case), if you don't abuse it. Excellent for anything up to photo/video editing or gaming. Try games ~3 years old, if you must. I had to choose between this and the Toshiba NB520. This acer has a better-resolution screen (it counts!!!
  • Pros: Plays HD. HDMI out. Nice keyboard.
  • Cons: It's green. I could not get it in Black in my country.

Great laptop

  • Summary: This laptop is great and still running well in 2014, having been purchased in 2011. Runs Windows 7. Acer laptops are reliable and the service from Amazon excellent. Nothing more to add. Recommended.

  • Summary: thought i get a bit more up to date, so decide to buy this. reasonably easy to set up{even for me}As previously i,d only used desktops needed to play around a bit to figure out the differences. i like a familiar desktop set up. Small & easily portable ideal when traveling I can recommend this for novices as easy to use & set up very happy with it.

Cheap, Affordable and decent!

  • Summary: I bought this netbook for use at school and on the go. I've always bought amd notebooks because of the dedicated GPU helped in areas such as multimedia and gaming. Of course I didn't buy this little machine for gaming but it does run games such as Call of Duty 4 at native resolution at a steady 25+fps while at demanding scenes.

User Review

EButler, Cnet.co.uk

  • Summary: I got mine in black and with its glossy top cover which is beautiful to look at but is a finger print magnet when you go to pick it up. The lid feels slightly flimsy when opening it but I put that down to the hinges. The screen is amazing. Nothing short of that really, I have friends that spent a lot more on a netbook with significantly worse screens. The keyboard is nice and works well with my sausage fingers though can feel bouncy at time.

Excellent, but...

Mr. A. J. Wojtak, Amazon
24 January 2012
  • Summary: I was looking for replacement for my samsung N510 netbook, after failing to find that model, and it seemed a lot of people were buying the acer aspire one 522 with a 2Gb RAM upgrade for £10. Just over £200 is a crazy cheap replacement for my old machine, which cost £480 at the time. I got the laptop on the Friday, and the memory arrived the following Monday. Trying to run the laptop over the weekend, I have to say that out of the box it's borderline unusable.

Too slow

kelly, Amazon
21 January 2012
  • Summary: I totally agree with the earlier review by 'ade'. Far too slow, open a second page while browsing and it takes forever, quite often freezes, and using yahoo messenger is nearly impossible. Battery life nowhere near the hours started, I probably get 2 hours at the most. Im sending this piece of crap back...

Near perfect device...

Greg T Williams, Amazon
21 December 2011
  • Summary: I brought this as I wanted something I could just throw in my bag and take to work with me as I didn't like carrying my Macbook Pro in my bag while driving my motorbike. It took only 4 days to turn up on my door step which is great, can never fault Amazon with their delivery. Well now into the review: I got mine in black and with its glossy top cover which is beautiful to look at but is a finger print magnet when you go to pick it up.
