Review Acer Aspire One 722-C62kk Notebook
11 July 2012
Summary: Minimal upgrade. Acer has updated the Aspire One 722 to offer more performance. In this review, we will determine whether Acer has achieved its goal with the inclusion of the AMD C-60 CPU and Radeon HD 6290 GPU and will also examine what other improvements Acer has made.
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 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.
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
Summary: The Acer Aspire One 722-BZ608 is a budget-priced 11-inch laptop that's more powerful than a Netbook, but not as fast as some higher-priced 11-inch alternatives. Better options are out there for a little more money.
Pros: The Acer Aspire One 722-BZ608 is affordable for an 11-inch ultraportable, and can stream video better than an Atom Netbook. It also comes with plenty of RAM and a roomy 500GB hard drive.
Cons: The 722-BZ608 has an uncomfortable keyboard and an underpowered AMD processor compared with other 11-inchers we've seen.
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.
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 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
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.
Summary: Raindrop. After the smaller One 522, a larger alternative in the Acer Aspire One 722, also equipped with an AMD Radeon HD 6250 graphics, shows up at our office. Is it a sensible range expansion or will the waves that it causes subside quite fast?
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, A matt display with the previously available 1366x768 pixels and a warranty period of 24 months ex-factory.
Conclusion: The Aspire One 722 stands out in a crowd due to its design and performance. It humbles every other similarly priced Atom-based netbook. Moreover, it packs in an HDMI port and a bright 11.6" widescreen display.
Pros: Great performance; Relatively big screen; HDMI port; Well-priced.
