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.
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: What separated this from the others was the 1280x720 screen, HDMI and Fusion. USB 3.0 would have made it perfect but 2.0 will have to do. Windows 7 is preinstalled which is good ass it takes less than 20min to get up and running. During installation there was a lot of freeware (Google Chrome, McAfee, Bing etc..) i declined all these installations and just downloaded Avast free virus protection.
Summary: My basic needs were to have something light & user-friendly when travelling for emails, internet browsing & transfer of photos. After reviewing everything I could find on the subject of netbooks it became clear that some products lost stars for things that did not interest me - such as playing on-line games, watching videos on long-haul flights & using as a full-on computer when working abroad.
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.
Excerpt: Не таи давно посмотрел на данную модель ноутбука у своего знакомого. Сразу понравилось то, что он компактный, не занимает много места. Так как мне тоже был необходим для работы ноутбук, то я задумался про его покупку. Купил 2 недели назад. Внешний вид внушает солидность, мне очень понравился дизайн. Очень доволен качеством. За такие деньги очень хороший ноутбук. Почти не нагревается, батарея хорошо держит заряд + достаточно быстро заряжается.
