The recent Amazon sub 239 tariff keeps this form factor relevant, as does the battery life, but be sure to check out the Acer Aspire One AO756-2808 11.6-Inch Netbook (Ash Black) as well, at least when Amazon has it back in stock for 3 bills or so. 7-19-12 note

The best reasons for buying the Acer AOD 270:

* One of the best netbbook screens - pretty evenly illuminated, and sufficient latitude in viewing angles so that when you are centered, none of the corners or edges are showing signs of diffracting.

Don't laugh, on some netbooks and even notebooks, the viewing angles can be SO limited that even if your head is centered relative to the screen, some part of the screen will be shaded, washed out, or diffracted.

Videos look pretty good on the AOD270 (but not as good as on a flat screen tv).

(If you want "great" video, you will probably have to move up to the much more expensive Macbook Air or shift to a completely different experience in the form of an iPad with its multi-angle IPS display.)

* Very thin design, very light, especially with the 3 cell battery, which can be purchased separately if you start with this 6 cell version. Note that this netbook and almost all non-Apple laptops come with somewhat short-lived batteries, good for two to four years (depends on charge cycles) before the loss of battery life drives you to buy a new battery (which you can replace yourself, cheaply, which helps compensate for the battery mortality).

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.

Picked up one of these little Acer N2600 netbooks for my wife to haul around on the road. It's actually an impressive little machine, especially after some upgrades. Probably the biggest need is to upgrade the memory to 2 GB. They only install 1 GB in order to keep the price down, but that amount of memory is just too borderline for many needs. Memory is cheap these days, though, and it really can improve the user experience. Changing the memory can be a little intimidating as you need to take the machine half-way apart to access the memory slot(including disconnecting the keyboard temporarily). The previous comment had some tips on that.

I also did the in-place upgrade from Windows Starter to Windows Home Premium. The upgrade code can be purchased on Amazon for about half of the listed retail price. Just makes it a better user experience in many ways. The Windows upgrade probably took about 30 minutes from start to finish but then security patches needed to be downloaded also.

At first I thought the netbook didn't contain a microphone but that was a minor issue with Skype (user error). My wife is using an external mic plugged into the mic port to get a bit higher quality sound.

The wireless N is kind of a "light" version that is capped at 72 Mbps maximum download rate. It's enough for most internet needs, however, and it seems to have good enough range.

I've had two Acer laptops, which have been telling about Acer as a company. The first laptop I purchased when Acer was just starting out, selling laptops. It was a superb computer for the inexpensive price. So after a few years of heavy use when it went out I decided to purchase another Acer (February 2012) until I could purchase a higher end desktop (March 2012).

This second laptop went out after THREE months of minimal use as most of my computing is now done on a desktop. I sent the computer to Acer after literally scouring their website for a method to contact customer service, which should of been a sign. This computer was in superb physical shape when sent out, its only issue? Something had gone amiss with the OS and had the blue screen of death followed by a black screen.

Couple days after shipping it out, Acer informs me my nearly new computer (which has never been dropped or moved more than a couple feet on a flat surface) was sporting a crack and repairs would cost $99.00 on a $248 computer. I refused to pay 99.00 and requested it be sent back. What I received, I can hardly believe is the same computer I sent to them. Keys are missing or busted, it had a nasty crack down the side, was covered in dust and some unidentified grime. Oddity of the situation is that Acer sent me photos of the USPS box I sent it out in and it was in grade A condition. The box I received it back in from FedEx was in excellent condition, too (not to mention the computer was shrink wrapped).

So, if the computer left me in excellent condition and nothing got crushed in shipping, however did all this damage happen? Furthermore, it was all classified as "customer caused physical damage"?
