Best Laptop - I've owned

Summary: This is a fantastic machine. Fast, small, lots of memory, light weight, great resolution and all around handles all my needs. I use it for MS office, Photoshop, AutoCad, even Revit. The best part, is it fits in my shoulder bag and weight almost nothing... Oh and it costs less than 1/2 of an apple equivalent.
Summary: I chose this laptop for its ultra-portable-like specifics and its almost-netbook-like price, as I need a travel companion for working in mobility on Office applications and web developement. After one year of usage I can say that this Acer is amazing! it has enough cpu power to flawlessly run a virtual machine to have a linux server onboard for development of web applications.

Summary: I've owned & used many desktop & laptop computers since 1992, all of them, when they were leading edge brands IBM, Compaq, Tandy, Gateway, Lenovo, Dell. I stayed away from anything HP, eMachine or Acer, convinced they are garbage department store machines. Last year I decided to try the Acer AO 7022 with the new AMD Graphics capable processor. I needed the small size & light weight.
Summary: This computer is brilliant for travelling, it's as powerful and fast as a desktop but ultra portable. It's also very competitively priced compared to any computer with similar spec. This is the second one I have bought as my son constantly wanted to use mine instead of using his Ipad. Fantastic buy, unfortunately Acer don't seem to be following it up with a updated version.
Excerpt: Overall I have been very happy with the laptop. I have been running openSUSE and CentOS without any issues and great overall driver support. The only downsides have been the Intel graphics and heat. This laptop runs very hot and is basically unusable without a cooling pad with fans.
Summary: I have had my laptop for a year and a half now and love it. It is a great feature set and size. The screen is very good for what it is and the performance is very reasonable. I can run my Canon photo processing software and process RAW files with it, I can run all the MS Office apps, Garmin maps, etc. I can stream Netflix to my TV with the HDMI port as well. I haven't found anything I can't do with it.
Summary: I bought this product with the understanding that I was buying an Timeline product as the title states. It is not a Timeline product. This product is an Aspire 1830-3895, notice no "T" suffix on the 1830, its not a Timeline. The battery is 4400 mAH, not 5800 as on the Timeline series. To deplete you battery further, there is also an obsolete GSM AT&T GSM WAN interface board in the laptop that can be removed.
Summary: I have had this same laptop for over a year and just bought another one for my dad. The fact that I purchased another one should say it all. I just wish this one had a built-in aircard, but other than that, I'm pretty happy with it.
Summary: LLEGO EN PERFECTO ESTADO, ES RAPIDA, NO PESA, LA BATERIA DURA AL MENOS 2 HORAS NAVEGANDO, NO HE PROBADO MAS DE ESE TIEMPO, LA PANTALLA NO TIENE NINGUN PIXEL MUERTO AL MENOS A VISTA NORMAL SIN PRUEBAS ESPECIFICAS. COMPRE ESTA ACER PORQUE TENGO OTRA ACER CON PROCESAR ATOM Y ME HA FUNCIONADO MUY BIEN. PERFECTAS PARA VIAJES. LO UNICO QUE LE HACE FALTA ES QUE LE PONGAN DE UNA VEZ SU BOLSA PARA LLEVARLA A MEDIDA COMO LA HACIA CON LAS LAPTOP ATOM.
Summary: This is an awesome "second" mobile netbook/laptop. Look, if you are into designing power point presentations, excel pages or word processing or any of the office suite of products as well as of course any CAD system or design and engineering type of software, this cannot be your main computer. Because eventually you get tired of the small screen. But this baby is capable of running all the above and gives you great mobility and very travel friendly.
