Great for the price
For $280, this is a great netbook. It won't replace your home machine, but it's small, light, and the battery really does last for six to eight hours. Using a 4GB memory card for ReadyBoost makes it fast enough to be useable for Office and internet, while the machine is already capable enough to stream video.
Great build quality, Good battery life, Well-priced
The Acer Aspire One D270 is a true upgrade in terms of not just hardware, but also performance and battery life. In addition to easily handling normal tasks, the ability to play 1080p videos flawlessly, earns it extra brownie points. The 10.1" screen is good enough, and it is even possible to hook it up with a larger display that will go easy on your eyes. It comes with Windows 7 Starter and MS Office 2010 Starter, so you don't have to invest extra funds for these essential software.
Eye pleasing design
The Acer Aspire One Happy 2 sells for around Â£229 and for that price range you get a decent netbook that is well built, sports an attractive design, and provides a standard performance. Additionally it offers users the choice of booting with Microsoft Windows 7 Starter edition or, for quicker access to functionality such as web browsing, Android 2.3.1.
The Acer One Happy 2 is one stylish device that's easy on the eyes. Its performance is quite good, and the product is not expensive either. On the other hand, it didn't do too well in our battery tests. However, as mentioned earlier, the device's relatively brighter screen could be the reason behind this.
Well Priced, Good Battery Life For Battery Size
Acer's Aspire One AO532h-2223 is probably one of the least expensive of the new generation of netbooks. With a price tag of $300, it keeps the price level with previous generations. There were some compromises down to achieve this price including holding back the hard drive size and using a smaller battery. Still, if one ones a netbook for very little and minds a few compromises, this is certainly one to take a look at.
Viewing angles are decent enough and it's bright and sharp
While not a bad effort, the Acer Aspire One 532h-2Dr suffers for being very similar to its Packard Bell sibling and not offering enough incentive over cheaper, previous generation machines that are considerably cheaper. It won't let you down, but neither will it blow you away.
Feb 8 2011 - Acer's Aspire One D255 isn't revolutionary really. What it does do is provide an affordable and more compact netbook than previous models. Prices are under $300 and weight around 2.4 pound. The sacrifices for price and weight come at the cost of both running time and storage capacity. The result is a trade off that will work for those that don't need the storage space or long running times but if you need it, there are other options available. Feb 8 2011.
