Summary: I was in the computer support business for over 20 years. Machines like this are "imaged" to install the operating system, device drivers, etc. This machine has one of the worst images I've ever seen. I blame this on the vendor - LAVATRONS.
Summary: Good product, but very limited functionality. No CD drive. Have owned mine for almost 1 year. I usually buy Apple but wanted something under $1,000 for traveling and did not want iPad. Regret buying it. Tried to return to seller, restocking fee was very high. Do your research before buying.
Summary: This is my second Acer. I bought this one for my wife since she mostly does web surfing and email. It's really heavy and slow. Just a few months of use and the hard drive died. I replaced the drive with an older one since I didn't want her to have to deal with downtime for a repair.
Hard drive failed after 4.5 months of use (review updated 8/22/12)

Summary: I must edit my review. Yesterday, August 22, 2012 (about four months after purchase), the Western Digital hard drive in this netbook failed. I'm not too picky about cheap tech, but I do expect these things to last more than four months.
Great little computer that had display go bad within a week.

Summary: I bought this amazing little computer for WiFi Internet use and for storing and playing back videos downloaded through the Amazon.com Unbox software. The display was great, and it played videos flawlessly; to me a miracle at the price point.
Summary: After some research, I thought that the Acer Aspire One seemed to offer good value for what I wanted, which was primarily a fairly light and small travel computer. I ordered from the road and, through the wonders of Amazon Prime, I had the computer the day after I returned home.
Summary: I bought this netbook a month ago and ever since it is a source of a continous disappointment. I only gave it two stars because of the abtility to play movies nicely and the great battery life. Other than that it is just not living up my expectations.
Summary: j'ai acquis ce netbook il y a quelques mois pour mes études. au départ, j'ai été séduit pas le produit, sa forme générale, son aspect visuel. en effet, je le trouve assez beau, le design est tout à fait séduisant. cependant, ce netbook s'est avéré très moyen quant à sa qualité.
