I plugged in an external DVD drive, booted it up to CloneZilla, copied the original image to my desktop, then I booted it up to Kubuntu never once having seen Windows 7 run on it.
Everything works in Linux without an issue except for the SD card reader - that's an annoyance, but not a must have for me.
The lack of Bluetooth really did annoy me. Acer advertises the option of getting this thing with Bluetooth, but I can't find a way to actually buy it that way. Instead I bought 6230 IEEE 802.11n (draft) Bluetooth 3.0 - Wi-Fi/Bluetooth Combo Adapter (Bulk) and replaced the factory card. It works great. Since I'm a biker and I've actually ate pavement - twice - with this thing in my backpack I decided to replace the spindle HDD with a OCZ 60 GB SATA 6.0 Gb-s 2.5-Inch Solid 3 SSD Series (SLD3-25SAT3-60G). My battery life is improved, it boots and shuts down quicker, and really, I don't do a whole lot with this machine but browse, but I have put some Humble Bundle games on here and run ZSNES with a PS3 control paired with Bluetooth and it plays the ZSNES stuff like a dream.Read more ›
I never really thought about Netbooks honestly. Turned out, I'm a believer!
I have Office 2010 running on this little bad boy with a number of other little programs. (Steam, Chrome, Media Monkey, VLC, etc.) I have been PLEASANTLY surprised at how effective this little computer is. I didn't upgrade the Starter Win 7 to Home. I didn't really see the point. I didn't upgrade the ram. Again, why?
It handles everything that I need it to do. I can type in OneNote all day at class (about 8 hrs) and not have any problem with battery life. I can go to the local library and connect to the WiFi with no problems. I can come to my hotel room and connect on the RJ45 cable with no problem.
This has been a real dream for me. I have a small back-up hard drive that I connect to share music and movies from and to perform backups. I watch Netflix when I'm relaxing. I play Steam games when I'm looking for some fun. I get on Skype and chat with the kids and wife. I couldn't ask for a better machine at the price that I paid. PLUS, I don't have to carry around a huge obnoxious laptop. (Even the 15" ones are cumbersome in my opinion)
Two thumbs up!
Anyways, the laptop does what it was advertised. a good job well done Acer. This netbook is a true netbook

Insane, this item which I bought from Amazon came with an Australian power connector. Acer support quick to resolve, but still totally frustrating.Published on May 31, 2011 by Dr. XYZ
