About me: I am a grad student in a major city. I walk/take public transportation to class and was using a large laptop for the first year. I needed a lightweight computer for use in class because carrying the larger laptop around was a hassle. My criteria were 1), lightweight 2), long battery life, 3) be a Windows 7 PC, 4) have Word, and 5) be relatively inexpensive. I was redeeming Amazon credits, so my out-of-pocket was insignificant.
This Acer Aspire One pretty much fit the bill and I would recommend it to anyone in a similar situation or someone looking for a budget lightweight laptop to take with them to work or school. Here is the pro and con breakdown:

Pros:
Lightweight: a little over 2.5 pounds.
Has Word Starter: perfect for class notes
Battery life: just leaving it on (not in sleep mode), but not in active use, the battery lasts a little over 7 hours.
Windows 7: does everything a normal Windows computer can do and supports the standard apps.
Good construction material: Does not feel like it is cheaply made. Some other computers at the same price range have keyboards that seem flimsy, etc.
285 GB Hard Disk
Inexpensive

Cons:
Slow: Shutdown time is about 1 minute and 15 seconds, startup is about 5 seconds faster, from start menu to being able to search on Chrome is about 17 seconds.
Really Slow: do not plan on much multitasking, because the computer slows to a crawl if you start opening too many windows. With just Chrome open, the window will freeze if you open up more than 10 tabs.
Do expect to anything too complex: this computer cannot be used for any high-end processing like video/photo editing or gaming. The Windows Experience Index gives it a 3.2 based on its processor. Also has 4.9 memory, 3.9 graphics, 5.

I got it from Target. The computer is not lightning fast but fast enough and definitely faster than any Atom netbook.

The biggest battery drainers are WIFI, screen brightness, processor speed. The screen brightness in Windows has 10 levels, from 10% to 100%, and you can choose power plans like "Power Saver" or "Balanced" etc. I made some measurements of the battery life since it is only 4 cells:

A. Power Saver, screen brightness at 30% (acceptable in a dark room), WIFI OFF, reading Kindle and word processing with MS word: battery drops 13%/hour -> 8 hours

B. Power Saver, screen brightness at 50% (acceptable even outside in a shadow), WIFI OFF, reading Kindle and word processing with MS word: battery drops 15%/hour -> 7 hours

C. Power Saver, screen brightness at 50%, WIFI ON with constant browsing, Skype on (but not talking): battery drops 20%/hour -> 5 hours

D. Power Saver, screen brightness at 50%, WIFI ON, Netflix streaming "The Tudors" with HD off: battery drops 30%/hour -> 3 hours and 20 mins

The touchpad is ELAN. I fixed the palm sensitivity by adjusting "PalmTracking" in the settings. What I hate about ELAN trackpads is that they don't have "momentum" like Synaptics so crossing the screen takes several flicks on the touchpad.

The sound coming from the tiny speakers on the bottom is correspondinly tiny. It can be amplified by going to Speaker Properties > Enhancements and checkin the Equalizer, then max out all frequencies.

Netflix streaming stutters on High Definition. On the other hand High Definition from YouTube plays without stuttering. The problem is some incompatibility between AMD processors and Silver Light used by Netflix to stream video. You can google its all over internet.

... and I have large fingers. I was surprised at the size of the keyboard. Positives about the Aspire One 725-0899, which I got a few days ago at Target for $299: Very lightweight; Windows 7 makes navigating between apps a breeze because it puts everything into little work groups, so you can have a ton of windows open a flit between them all in seconds. The screen is crystal clear, though you will want to change your settings to increase text size while browsing the Web and using programs like Microsoft Word. I also use full-screen mode online to maximize every inch of the 11-inch screen.

Negatives: The mouse is way too sensitive. I'll be typing and the bottom of my hand will touch the mouse and my text will delete or I'll end up writing in another paragraph somehow. So if you have a habit of resting your wrist on the mousepad, this will mean trouble for you. Also, the speakers/volume could be more powerful. I wish it were twice as loud.

Overall, though, this is a well-made, solid little machine. I may be getting rid of my tablet now that I have another ultra-portable option, this one with a very functional keyboard.

I have always been a devoted customer to Toshiba when it comes to any kind of laptop or portable computer. However I must give Acer credit for creating a solid and very high quality device at a every affordable price. I purchased this Acer Aspire One netbook, upgraded the memory to 8GB which was a very simple upgrade to do. Added a 16GB USB Scandisk Cruzer Flash Drive, 32GB Class 10 Transcend SDHC Card dedicated all 32GB for ReadyBoost to speed up the processing to the max. Once I was finished removing all of the free-ware games and apps (crap-ware) that these devices come loaded full of it is now running perfectly, and is very fast. I am able to do just about anything that my laptop can do including running games such as MAME ARCADE, WoW, Diablo III, Unreal Tournament 2004, Ultima Online: HSA and all development software for FREE EMU Server. Anyone who tells you this netbook won't run games is dead wrong! I am very impressed. Supports and plays all formats of Movies/Videos, and Music. There is no CDRom drive (pretty standard for netbooks not to have one) but you can install just about any piece of software for PC's by coping the CD's contents to a USB Flash Drive and then install the software from the USB drive just as if it was the CDRom. Only downside is if the software has a CDRom check (as some games do) then you will need a NoCD crack for the software to work. Great buy overall!

To upgrade the Memory Module, simply turn the netbook upside down so your looking at the bottom of it (with the battery port facing away from you). Remove the battery first by sliding the locking switch fully to the right and pull the battery free. Now you will see that the bottom has a large square area in the middle which is held in place by a single screw at the bottom edge.
