Please note that the Acer list price for this model is $379.

Update note 7-19-12: if only one of your two memory slots is populated,the cheapest memory upgrade is to buy a single matching stick to the other, vacant slot. This will boost your video score under the WEI (Windows Experience Index from 4.7 to 4.9. If you add 2 new modules using faster PC3-12800 RAM your WEI for RAM speed will jump from 5.9 to 7.4. The motherboard is quite good, see the comments below this review. Do not mismatch RAM module speeds or sizes! No additional boost to video score.

+ Better than average display quality - can view the entire screen out to the corners without "darkening;" videos have a "vibrancy" lacking in most 10.1" netbooks. Macbook Airs remain the "gold-standard" however.
+ Nice keyboard feel - nicely spaced, almost full-sized keyboard with "island" style keys with good space between the keys. The keys themselves are about 93% of IBM Selectric typewriter sizing. Comparable to Macbook Air.
+ Very zippy - significantly faster than Atom powered netbooks and lower-end AMD Fusion netbooks (C-60, E-300, E-450).
+ One of the lightest (2.15 lbs with battery but without charger; 3.05 lbs with charger) and thinnest netbooks /notebooks, short of the Macbook Airs (and their copies, the Intel-sponsored Ultrabooks). Solid feel.
+ Trackpad is much more stable than on earlier netbooks - two finger scrolling is smooth too.
+ True "high def" screen (albeit of the 720p, not 1080p, variety).
+ Compared to 1gb of RAM on the remaining 10.1" netbooks, this has 4 gb and the lowest configuration is still 2 gb.
+ Compared to Windows 32 bit in the crippled _Starter_ edition on the remaining 10.1" netbooks, all editions of this AO756 come with 64 bit Home Premium.

Verified Purchase
I've used this 11.6" netbook since July 25th. Here are my impressions to add to others' reviews on the Acer AO756. I own the 4GB/500GB HDD AO756-2808 model:

WEI SCORE: (5 stars out of 5)
Default out of the box was:
CPU-4.7, RAM-5.9, GPU-4.5, Game-4.5, HDD-5.9
Reran it to get:
CPU-4.7, RAM-5.9, GPU-4.5, Game-4.7, HDD-5.9

Not sure why, but the gaming score upped itself when I reran the WEI test, so if your score is lower, run the test again.

DESIGN: (6 stars out of 5)
In this day of thin netbooks being nearly impossible to upgrade nor easy to gain access to the HDD or wireless card, the 756 shines like a beacon for the others. The bottom plate is easily removed by taking off one screw and sliding the bottom plate toward you. Underneath has *very* easy access to the HDD, 2 RAM slots (one filled) and the wireless card. For this, you rock for me, Acer!

The weight is only 2 lbs 15 oz. *Very* light and thin for a $300 netbook.

PROCESSOR: (5 stars out of 5)
I'll probably say this several times throughout this review: This is a very fast, "snappy" netbook! I'm impressed. Using this Celeron 877, I am amazed at how responsive it is. I'd debated over the Celeron 877 model and the Pentium 967 model, but looking at their respective specs, I could find *no* differences between the two processors (they even have the identical cache) except that the 877 runs at 1.4GHz and the Pentium 967 at 1.3GHz. Passmark confirms that the Celeron is the better processor.

I bought the Celeron B877 / 2G / 320G version today, and I initially decided to return it. It is super except for one thing that is close to a deal killer for me - the speakers are terrible. The sound is much worse than the sound on my old Gateway LT2114U 10.1" netbook. The sound is very weak even when the volume is turned all the way up, and it is tinny. I tried doing a webcam chat and I have difficulty understanding what the other person is saying. Of course things are fine if you use earphones. I should not have to do this - particularly when the sound is fine on my old netbook! And I know that good audio quality is possible on such a thin device, because I have great quality on my tablet.

The problem is .. I don't see anything comparable (11-12 inches, Celeron B877-level performance) from anyone else for anywhere near the same price. You can pay considerably more to get an 11.6 netbook with lower (Atom N2700 or AMD E-450 or similar) performance. That doesn't sound like a deal to me.

The chiclet keyboard is pretty nice - but unfortunately the arrow keys are very small, even smaller than on my older Gateway netbook. And like my Gateway, there are no dedicated home and end keys - these keystrokes require a Fn key combination. The extra space could have been used to give us bigger arrow keys or home/end keys, but I guess the all the extra space went to the chiclet key spacing.

Another thing that is a bit disconcerting - there are no touchpad buttons! You push the entire touchpad down at the lower left and right hand sides to left or right click.

The display and the webcam are very good.

Here are some comparisons of passmark scores and TDP ratings of the CPUs you might find in this 11.
