10.1-Inch CrystalBrite Screen

The 10.1-inch screen has a WSVGA resolution (1024 x 600) and support for up a 262K color depth. Video is powered by the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950, which uses shared video memory with the main memory. Acer's CrystalBrite display technology guarantees the best possible visual experience by preventing the diffusion of surrounding light and internal ray. Compared to normal TFT LCDs, Acer CrystalBrite technology is able to read color coordinates more accurately, thus minimizing distortion and creating high-fidelity colors in all environments.

Power-Sipping Processor

The Intel Atom processor uses a brand new design structure that packs in 47 million transistors into a single chip sized at just 22mm (0.87 inches), and it uses just 2.5 watts of power--less than 1/10 of the 35 watts used by an Intel Core 2 Duo processor--for excellent battery management. This 1.6 GHz Atom N270 processor also includes a power-optimized front side bus of 533 MHz for faster data transfer on demanding mobile applications and a 512 KB L2 cache (which temporarily stores data).

Got it from Wal Mart for 298 $. This is a great netbook

- After uninstalling Google Toolbar and McAfee and other useless software came with the netbook, it is really fast. 1 GB is enough, if you do that cleanup.
- Thinner than D150 model, very light weight.
- keyboard is small still usable

- touchpad isn't that good, gesture for scroll doesn't work always.
- screen is glossy, but usable. I prefer glossy screen, some people won't like it.

Got this as a present for my birthday, fantastic little netbook. Packed with Bloat-ware though (one of the reasons I rated 4 stars) xp is great out of the box for checking emails, going on Myspace/Facebook, googleing your ex girlfriend... (stalker status!) After about 2 weeks of use, just because of the bloat-ware, and some other features it had to offer, I decided to install Windows 7. It runs spectacularly,

The battery from the factory leaves something to be desired as it only last 2 hours on a good day. But with the 6 cell battery I get about 4 hours. What good is a netbook you can take anywhere if you can't take it anywhere without a charger? The screen on the acer is magnificent, crystal clear, amazing colors, and its bright and beautiful. The webcam is okay but if you take pictures for Myspace on it or craigslist, you may be dissapointed. It's color is a bit dull, and the pictures are not the best but in all honesty I rarely use it anyway.

While the keyboard is smaller when moving from another laptop its not a hugely noticeable difference, I can still type without mistakes (other than my poor typing skills on any computer) and the best feature that was the nail in the coffin, was the touchpad. I would never been able to use the hp mini's or some of the msi wind's because of there retarded touchpad having the left and right buttons on the left and right side.

All in all a very solid netbook, and If I could buy another I would definately do it. Beautiful in design, Light in weight, Awesome functionality, and incredible speed.

I've read about this computer on several websites. had the best price. I bought this thing on June 17. By mid-July the screen started to flicker and then died. I troubleshooted this problem by plugging it into my TV proving that it was the LCD screen that had died in less than 1 month. I used my warranty and I had to pay to send it to their service center in Texas. When I got the computer back the screen flickered the same day I got it, so I sent it back to them. The second time I got the computer back the left side hinge for the LCD screen was broken and obviously gouged with a screw driver and it was missing one of the rubber legs on the bottom, so I sent it in again....... I got it back today. Having owned this computer for just over 4 months, only being able to use if for roughly 2 months, they repaired the hinge and replaced the rubber leg with a SMALLER ONE. Now it does not even sit balanced. Very disappointed in Acer. This is my FORTH Acer computer since 1998 and am very disappointed not only in this computer but their repair service. I hope all my writing here helps someone.

Terrific product. For traveling, its size & weight is perfect. It has sufficient ram & disk size for my (non-gaming) needs, which is Internet use, taking notes in libraries, & writing. Character fonts are extremely sharp, & I'm pleased at the variable screen brightness controls, so that I can use it in dark interiors and outside on sunny days. I'm 100% satisfied.

This model is fairly new. So it has the usual features, i.e. built in wi-fi, camera, 160 GB drive, etc, etc. This is the 3 hr battery model. I have no idea where Amazon gets their tech specs. We just bought this and the manual states that it comes with 1 GB of RAM, and is upgradeable to 2 GB. It recognized 4 wireless connections in my area the instant it was powered on. So far it's great for what it was bought for, the internet, small low demand games, music, simple word processing...

I spent a lot of time comparison shopping, especially between this computer and the HP with similiar specs. A lot of the comparison reviews rated this computer lower, saying the Acer keyboard is too small, but I have not found this to be the case. I do not have small (female)hands, and I have not had a problem adjusting to the smaller board. I went to Best Buy to put my hands on the HP keyboard and while I was there I compared the feel with other netbooks there with smaller boards, and I didn't see a big difference.

This computer is FAST and so light. I love it. When I first took it out of the box, I wasn't sure how to tell if the Wi-fi switch was on or off--the switch doesn't lock, and the signal at my house is very weak--but I figured it out when I got to the coffee shop where there is a good signal. I have not had any problems with this computer. I loaded Word on it a couple of days ago, and it is working great. The display is not as good as a full-size laptop. Sometimes it is a little dark, and this might bother someone who is looking for an excellent display--maybe someone who uses it for games or movies or something like that. Obviously, based on my previous statements about this computer, I don't mind the occasional darkness. The display is great for my purposes--word processing, internet work, email.
