October 2010 update:

The review is now woefully out of date.

Please look instead at the just-released Aspire Atom Dual Core Acer Aspire One AOD255-1549 10.1-Inch Netbook - Diamond Black which has a dual core instead of single core Atom processor. Same great battery life, but much better performance. It's slightly more expensive (at least during the introduction, expect prices to drop in 3 months) but should handle Hulu much better (less stuttering/higher resolution/bigger window size). Or if you don't mind a smaller Hulu window/lower resolution, the N450 single core version is an updated bargain - Acer Aspire One AOD255-2509 10.1-Inch Netbook - Diamond Black. For only $10 more, the "269" model has a much more useful 250 gb hard drive - Acer Aspire One AOD255-2691 10.1-Inch Netbook - Diamond Black. I recommend spending that extra $10 for the bigger hard drive. I store my music and video collection on my netbook, use it for travel, and quickly fill up the hard drive - 160 gb isn't enough for me anymore.

Also if video is your top priority, more than battery life, the recent Acers with the AMD Athlon II Neo chip and Radeon graphics are reportedly much, much better in terms of performande, but batter life drops to 3-4 hours (Acer may be winding this model down already precisely for this reason) -

I strongly disagree with a previous review of this netbook. I also purchased this model number from a different vendor (I just needed it right away) and I have to say that you get a lot for what you are paying. True--it is not as fast as a dual-core processor laptop but that's the point--it doesn't need to be! I surfed the web, I watched streaming video on both Netflix and Hulu, I typed a document and you know what? It all worked great! What else can you ask for? Any complaints? Yeah, it doesn't make me toast in the morning. I don't understand what people are yelling about!

I bought mine from a local retailer for about the same price. I've owned a dozen laptops and even the 14" ones are too big and bulky for me. I love the portability of this machine and for the price, it's a really good value.

I highly recommend putting in a 2GB RAM module (I used an 800MHz one) and, if you like, a larger hard drive. The extra RAM gives Windows 7 room to breathe and speeds things up noticeably. The Starter Edition of Windows 7 is too limiting for me, I upgraded to another edition of Windows 7. After you upgrade the RAM and the OS to a higher edition of Windows 7, install the Acer VGA driver for Windows 7 and then you'll have the proper screen resolution and you can run in Aero mode.

I have run Ubuntu Linux (both the Netbook Remix and the standard one), Windows XP Pro, and Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit on my 532h and they all ran just fine. Stick to 32-bit operating systems on this model since it can't take more than 2GB of RAM (like all netbooks).

For web surfing, I use Google Chrome and it runs much faster than IE8 or Firefox on this machine. Chrome is a good choice because now you can add extensions, like ad blockers, to it. Basically, if you're like most people and 90% of what you do on a computer is social networking (Twitter, Facebook, etc.), browsing the web, word processing, email and other simple tasks -- well, this machine is all you need.

Finally, remember, it's a Netbook. Not a desktop or even a regular laptop. If you want to do any serious gaming, forget it, but it will run some games. There are netbook websites that are very helpful and some of them even have game recommendations for netbooks.

A netbook seems ideal for vacation travel. It's compact, lightweight (2.6 lbs), has wireless for internet, a good size screen for viewing photos, a big drive (160 GB) for storage, an 8-hour battery, and a media card slot to download photos from the camera.

My first decision was Acer at $ 300 Vs. HP at $350. They are virtually identical. I've been unimpressed with HP's tech support on my $ 1500 laptop. HP has no advantage.

First impressions of Acer Aspire One 532h-2588:
A highly adjustable angle provides good screen viewing. Keys are 93% the size of a full keyboard and quite comfortable. The Acer has 1 GB of RAM expandable to 2 GB ($48). And it lacks a DVD drive ($ 60-70). I expected I would need more memory and an external DVD drive.

To test it, I loaded software to view, rename, and edit photos, plus a full compliment of word, spreadsheet, presentation, database, etc. software. Here's the list of software I installed by downloading from the internet and using my license keys to activate as necessary.
The full Norton Security Suite
Google Picasa photo viewing and editing software = FREEWARE
Photoshop Elements 8
Nikon Capture NX2 photo editing software
FileRenamer FREEWARE from Sherrod Computers
Open Office Org word processing, spreadsheet, presentation, database, etc, = FREEWARE

Based on ease of loading software from the internet and transferring files via USB port, I decided I do not need an external DVD drive.

My first test was to determine if the included Windows software could display a photo in Nikon RAW/NEF format. Windows software could not handle the RAW file. I installed Google Picasa. It immediately recognized and displayed photos in Nikon's RAW file format.
