Summary: Got this for about a week now, as a college student, the light weight at 3 lbs (lighter than my lightest text book) is great along with some good processing power. Did some hd video editing that really pushed the cpu to its limits, but didn't over heat or crashed as my previous machine.
Summary: So, I got this to be a portable music performance laptop. The basic qualities I needed were: reasonably powerful (in terms of processor speed and available memory), long battery life, portable, and useable keyboard. It succeeds in all those areas.
Summary: This Ultra-laptop which it what they are calling 11.6 these days is a major step in the right direction. It's fast, it does not heat up hardly at all compared to the ASUS 1501n and generally runs well.
Summary: This computer will not run Windows 7 SP1. The Intel HD Graphics requires an updated driver before SP1 will install. (See MS KB2498452.) While Intel has released generic drivers, Acer will not allow them to be installed (neither the zip nor exe nor manual installation will complete).
Screens are all bad!!! But awsome power and hi-tech for its size

Summary: Im having a hard time reviewing this hi-tech POS. Pros: Very fast intel core I7 cool CPU (lap never gets hot) LED back lit screen looks amazing! Super compact for the power it produces Hdmi, sd slot, 3 USB, and lots of connections Battery life is awsome around 5 hours average very slim and quiet...
Summary: I had mine for 10 days and returned it. Did not buy it here. Not a bad netbook depending on your needs and preferences. I'll give you my pros/cons. Aside from the scratch on the screen, the reasons for my disliking were mainly personal issue with the 1830t. You may not have an issue.
