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.
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.
Summary: very pleased with this netbook. I already had an aspire one and wouldnt have chosen windows 7. it was easy to adapt and the whole thing was literally plug and play. i was on line in half an hour. Good visibilty and easy to use .
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.
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...
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.
Excerpt: "This netbook, in my eyes is just an absoulute beast! I currently own the verison in olive green and i love it! Having the dedicated, AMD Fusion HD graphics card is such a bonues for any netbook! I picked this baby up in PC World for around £200 and have owned it for about 5 months, nothing has disappointed me thus far. Except maybe the CPU power only being clocked at 1Ghz. But the RAM is upgradeable to 4GB if Windows 7 Home Premium is installed. Being ...
Summary: Bought this netbook to replace my 3 year old Aspire One (one of the first Intel Atom netbooks). I am seriously impressed! The only problem with this is its setup badly out of the box! If you are buying this netbook you should make sure your ready to upgrade to at least 2Gb of RAM (Google for info!). If you want HD playback you need to make sure you have the latest drivers and a video player that supports GPU acceleration.
Pros: Cheap, Light, HD Screen and Playback, Upgradable (4GB Ram!)
Summary: i dont mind the look of it, it had the extra plug ins on it and hdmi hook up! i am just wondering if anyone else had these problems? i have got my husband to udjust my touch pad settings but it seems to be in the typing!Not sure if its to do with the typng bits that are in a box with a scroll and the screen size setting on the web sites.
Pros: Its Light! Good screen!
Cons: jumps all over the page when trying to type stuff, especailly on F.B. Clicks on stuff on its own. Mouse clicker is tough to click!
