This netbook is quite fast to boot up and handles home use well. Mine was defective, screen flickering with lines and dimming, occasional blackness here and there. Amazon has a great return policy. There is one misleading thing about the add, it says "Windows Office Starter 2010," this is NOT usable Office, it is just an installed version that needs to be purchased and activated before it can be used. Luckily I had a number laying around and was able to transfer from an old computer no longer in use. If you are thinking of getting this because it already has Microsoft on it you should now that it will cost another $80 to activate the software.

For a complete review of this netbook, see Acer Aspire One AOD270-1410 10.1-Inch Netbook (Espresso Black). The 1824 is actually the one I purchased for myself, and reviewed under the 1410 heading months ago - Amazon only recently started carrying the 3 cell version itself. Other than the battery capacity and about $10 difference in pricing, the two units are the same. This remains a sturdy little classic 10.1" netbook which should have a vastly improved video driver when Windows 8 is released in a couple of months. The cost of upgrading this unit to Windows 8 is only $15 under the Windows 8 upgrade program - just go to "Windows 8 Upgrade" at the Microsoft website to register for the upgrade. Contrary to early fears, Windows 8 is actually EASIER on processor and system resources than Windows 7, shocking for Microsoft, but great for us.

I've used several Acer Netbooks. I bought mine because I needed a low-cost, highly portable PC. I've installed the Adobe Suite, Autodesk Inventor, and Autodesk 3ds Max. Yes, it's as slow as you would expect this CPU to be, but it's fast compared to my five year old desktop. I love it. It's small enough that I actually take it with me. I can work on files locally when I need to. It works over Remote Desktop to my server farm. I haven't found anything it can't do.

I owned this netbook for 6 months before I ended up upgrading.
While I used it I put in a solid state drive which made the boot and load times very fast,
and I also switched it to 2gb of RAM. The 2gb of RAM is the max supported but is still fairly low
and also requires you to upgrade to a higher version of Windows than Starter, the default that comes with it.
This unit is extremely light, comparable to a tablet like an iPad.
If you are looking for a cheap unit that travels very easily and can run some of basic programs then I say this is a great buy
if you can get it for around the low $100 range and put in an SSD.
But if you are looking for this to be your main computing option then you are better off buying something else.

I recently bought this netbook for home and work use. I like the multi-processor and connectivity. I do NOT like that Windows 8 will NOT honor the $15 upgrade from Windows 7 Starter (only full versions). This had been a selling factor in the advertising of the unit. I also do not like that RAM upgraing should be very easy, if the 3 screws holding the back cover were there (as with the ASUS version), yet is a bear. Why would Acer do such a stupid design change? Clearly, the included 1GB RAM is barely enough, and running multiple tabs or browser windows causes severe slowness and page crashing.
After getting the recommended 2GB RAM, I am now reluctant to tear it all apart for the minimal improvement noted by others. One suggested using a 4GB instead, and got great results. It makes too much sense to get this instead, if a RAM upgrade is to be done, even though the manufacturer states it can only take 2GB. Besides the reviewer I read, has anyone else done this?
Overall I like the machine, and it is a very good price.

I'm very satisfied with this purchase. Its fast enough browsing the web, the picture quality is satisfying, but i wish the volume was a little louder. It was the right price for what it offers.

I found this netbook to be very unstable. It either crashes , or simply shuts off ( over 20 times in the first 4 hours of life ). Decided to return this netbook, as it's not worth the headache. Folks be very cautious about ordering this. sorry i did !

I really cannot say I have anything bad to say about this netbook. It runs very good and does everything I want and need it to. I love the HDMI port. As I write this review, I have the netbook connected to my TV while I use a wireless keyboard & mouse which allow me to sit on my couch. I really have not had any problems with this product and I love it!
