Acer Aspire One Netbook Review
8 March 2014
Excerpt: Acer nye lancering netbook, Acer Aspire One, som det, de udtales skal ikke en almindelig laptop, men i stedet en ny generation af "internet enhed". Men det er ikke overbevist andre IT-virksomheder, herunder Intel og deres netbook rivaliserende Asus, de stadig betragtes som deres laptop som "netbook". Hele begrebet netbook er første gang indført ved Asus med deres serie af Asus Eee-modeller. Vil du have en Premium Navn Brand Laptop gratis?
Excerpt: It should come as no surprise to anyone that netbooks have suddenly become the most active segment in mobile computing over the past few months. These diminutive laptops offer excellent VFM, with their small size and excellent battery life. This has led to practically every manufacturer introducing some netbook variant or the other. It's Acer's turn now, with a launch under the 'Aspire One' brand. Let's find out how it fares.
Conclusion: The Acer Aspire One is the best buy among netbooks at the moment. It's got good performance, solid build quality and good looks. The features for the price beat ASUS, Dell and HP. At $349, portable computing just got more affordable. And for those who aren't budget-constrained, the Acer is one cool ultraportable that's perfect for vacations, the living room sofa or anyplace else you want to use a small, light computer.
Pros: Fantastic price for what you get! Excellent build quality, nice looking and good performance. Plenty enough horsepower for XP and productivity/web applications. Small and light. Plenty of ports. Sharp and bright display. Good software and drivers make for a stable computing experience. Excellent Skype video call quality. Large drive is much more practical than small SSD drives that barely have enough room for the OS and MS Office.
Cons: Battery life is only 2 to 2.5 hours with 3 cell battery. 6 cell battery, when purchased separately, is expensive relative to the Aspire One's price. Fan noise is like a full-sized notebook.
Summary: The Acer Aspire One cuts a pretty good figure. Price wise, it is definitely an interesting alternative as this Linux-based pocket-sized machine that can be used on the go almost anywhere (until the battery runs out 2.5 hours later) retails for only $329.
Productivity while out and about is not a problem as Open Office 2.3 is already preinstalled. Firefox gets the user onto the Internet, and an email client and a messenger are also installed.
Summary: For those looking for an even lower cost budget netbook, the Acer Aspire One is a worthy candidate to think about. This computer has solid build quality to handle being tossed around in a backpack or purse, and modest performance to handle common software applications with ease. Battery life isn’t the best with the 3-cell model, so if you spot the 6-cell/160GB version in stock, it is highly recommended that you pick that.
Conclusion: While the netbook has 802.11b/g WiFi, neither Bluetooth nor 3G wireless broadband are included. The former can be had by plugging in a USB dongle; Acer has mentioned an internal upgrade for the latter, but there's no hard news as of yet. It's 3G we're thinking of when we say we wish the Aspire One had an ExpressCard slot like Lenovo's forthcoming IdeaPad S10. Acer's software bundle is modest.
Summary: A few glitches aside such as near-useless track buttons, and no user adjustable screen brightness, the Acer Aspire One is the current pick of the breed. Figure in the curvier styling and shiny colours, and Acer moves to the top of the list, especially at the attractive price of Â£220.
Summary: With more than a passing nod to the Asus Eee PC , and in particular the new Asus Eee PC 901 , with the Acer Aspire One Acer has taken on the concept of affordable mini-laptop – and improved upon it.
