Acer Aspire One 722 netbook Review
5 June 2013
Summary: Acer has priced the 722 at Rs.18,560 (MOP), which is a good price for a 11.6-inch netbook. But we’d recommend you put in a little more money and get one with a E-350 APU, as it’s a lot faster and Windows responds better as well. Currently, HP’s DM1 netbook is one of the best in the market for a little over Rs.22,000.
Conclusion: The Aspire One AO722 is going to be a fine portable laptop for those with basic needs and who are not demanding users and picky about features. When you consider you can get this laptop for $349 or less , it was in fact on sale for $250 during Black Friday last year at Target, the AO722 is a bargain. I’d buy this any day of the week over the Asus X101CH with Intel Atom processor we recently reviewed . However, you can’t pay a cheap price and still get the best. The...
Pros: Great price of $349, Clean design, color options for flare, Great battery life of up to 7 hours, Light weight and portable, Decent performance given the price
Cons: Keyboard suffers from flexing and mushiness, Plastic case has some weak spots and flex, Glossy screen and bezel have annoying reflections, Lid picks up a lot of fingerprints
Conclusion: With the Aspire One 722-C62kk, Acer has upgraded the performance and improved the display qualities of its netbook. Computing power is sufficient for a wide spectrum of applications and should satisfy most home users. Otherwise, the notebook is more or less comparable to the previously tested unit. The low weight, mitigated case quality, and frugal but adequate connectivity options are unchanged and sufficient for the target audience.
Pros: Bright Display, Quiet and economical, Good mobile capabilitys with long battery life, Equipped according to it's class, Low-consumption components which allow long battery runtimes.
Cons: Wiew angle-dependant, low contrast and mirroring Display, Heats up a lot even though the components aren't powerfull, Disappointing keyboard, Flexing Palmrest
Conclusion: The Acer Aspire One AO722-0828 has a few stand-out features, for a netbook: 4GB of RAM and a 500GB hard drive are rare finds in this category. But a relatively short battery life leaves something to be desired.
Pros: AMD Fusion processor is a good performer. 4GB of RAM included. No bloatware. HDMI port included. Huge 500GB hard drive.
Conclusion: The best alternative, though, is another AMD Fusion-based machine. If you're comfortable spending an additional $100 for a considerable bump up in performance and a better keyboard, the HP Pavilion dm1 is also worth a close look.
Pros: Above-average LCD for a netbook, Speedy for price, HDMI output, Playful design, Very able Webcam
Cons: Weak speakers, Design will put off serious-minded users, Annoying beeps when power cord is attached or detached
Acer Aspire One 722-BZ608 – Affordably-Priced 11 in Laptop
19 July 2011
Excerpt: Talking of netbooks in present tablet era seems a tad outdated, and it wont be a lie if we say that Netbooks actually have eventually disappeared from Earth, but not completely. Even in the post-iPad age, every now and then we see the inexpensive 10- and 11- in laptops paving their way into the market, and while not many of the aspiring customers will go for these notebooks, its nice to see that even these netbooks are changing with time.
Summary: With its netbook pricing and eye-catching design, the Acer Aspire One 722 is a pretty good value. You get a larger, higher-res screen than a netbook, nearly 7 hours of battery life, and the ability to play HD video for just $379. Other ultraportables powered by AMD's E Series processor offer more oomph--and the keyboard could be better--but overall the Aspire One 722 is a solid pick for bargain hunters.
Pros: Sleek slim design, Large friction-free touchpad, Long battery life, Good webcam
Cons: Sub-par keyboard, Mediocre performance, Display isn't as bright as we'd like
Conclusion: The Acer Aspire One 722 finishes off the netbook portfolio with the latest AMD C-50 APU and incorporated Radeon HD 6250 Grafik . In terms of performance, the given bundle is nothing new and the Intel opponent should be preferred for pure office performance. The fresh design , the standard scope of interfaces and the easy extendability are bonus points.
Pros: Slim and elegant case, Easy extendability, Room saving, light power adapter, Average office performance, Low system noise, Convincing battery runtimes, The fresh design with the raindrop look, the good battery runtimes, the easy extendability and the quiet office operation.
Cons: Lack of case stability, Small scope of delivery, Only a 12 month warranty ex-factory, Average display rates, Temperatures during load
