Conclusion: The Acer Aspire One 532 netbook leaves us with an overall good impression . The high battery life is probably the best feature of the new Intel Pine Trail platform. The ports available on the 532 are not unusual for a netbook and one can easily find the typical ports. However, the USB ports are hard to access and the Kensington lock is disadvantageously placed.
Pros: Stylish design, Price, Model variety, Multi-in-1 cardreader, Intel Atom N450 processor, Long battery life, Matt display, Free mini PCI-Express slot, The elegant display lid, the good workmanship of the case, thanks to Intel Atom N450 CPU the long battery life, the good display with matte surface and finally also the price.
Cons: Hard-to-access USB ports, Meagre delivery contents, Keyboard, sensitive display cover, Restricted full resolution, An HD-Decoder inside the free Mini-PCI-Express slot. Acer should at least offer such optionally. Furthermore: a scratch-proof finish, a stabler keyboard and a bigger scope of delivery.
Summary: In most respects, the Acer Aspire One 532h is a lot like every other netbook: specs include a 1.66-GHz Intel Atom N450 processor, 1GB of RAM, Windows 7 Starter Edition, and a 250GB hard drive. Its performance, too, is almost identical to such netbooks as the Toshiba mini NB305 and the ASUS Eee PC 1005PE-P. Where Acer has everyone else beat, though, is price. At $349, the company has undercut the longer-lasting 1005PE-P by $30, and the NB305 by $50.
Pros: Sleek two-tone design, Long battery life, Relatively large textured touchpad, Above-average audio quality,
Cons: Chassis picks up fingerprints, Keyboard feels a bit cramped, Lower left side runs hot,
Excerpt: The Acer Aspire One 532h represents an incremental step-up over the company's Aspire One 531 netbook launched in the middle of last year. As such it doesn't make any substantial changes to the netbook line - this isn't a netbook that brings with it a great boost in graphics processing like those sporting the Nvidia ION chipset, but it does come with a promise of a long battery life and runs Windows 7 Starter edition.
Pros: Long battery life, good keyboard, newly designed lightweight powerpack
Cons: Design not very exciting, 1GB RAM could be improved on
