3 Lemons in a Row - 8 months of hoop jumping and still no solution

ChristineSutherland, CNET
9 April 2015
  • Summary: I am on my 3rd Acer E1-522 in less than 8 months. This 3rd machine is really a 4th because the Acer technician has replaced the entire guts of the thing. It still has problems that make it horrendous to use, and all I want is a refund so I can buy a reliable computer.
  • Pros: The specs are good, it's just a pity the machine itself doesn't meet them.
  • Cons: 3 dud machines, one after the other, unreliable and flawed performance.

Acer Aspire One 522

broncopasler, CNET
2 May 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.
  • 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.

User Review

EButler, Cnet.co.uk
2 April 2012
  • 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.

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.

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.

Acer Aspire One 522

ihameed, Amazon
27 September 2011
  • Summary: This is an excellent notebook that is let down by stingy RAM. Luckily, that can be fixed fairly inexpensively now-a-days. other than that it is a lovely piece of kit with the screen having a very good resolution.
