The Acer Aspire 1551-4755 is a powerful, lightweight netbook. It combines the best of both worlds: it is more powerful than the average netbook, but it is cheaper, thinner, and lighter than the average laptop. In fact, for this price, there isn't a more powerful or more mobile computer on the market. If you are looking for something small to carry around campus or to the office, this is a great compute

PROS:
¯¯¯¯¯
1. Very thin and lightweight. This is the biggest reason I bought this netbook. It's actually thinner and lighter than other netbooks, despite having a larger screen. The battery also fits within the chassis, whereas most other netbooks require the battery to protrude out (very ugly!). This computer has a very streamlined, professional appearance, and is easy to carry.

2. It's powerful enough to play casual games (The Sims 3), and even some more intense games (World of Warcraft). It also has the resolution to play HD videos, and the hdmi port gives the option to stream video to your HDTV. HD video is very rare among netbooks, and an hdmi port is even rarer. This is a big bonus if you like to stream Netflix but don't want to buy an expensive player.

3. The higher resolution and larger screen is also handy for web browsing and paper writing. I had a 10" netbook before this one, and I very much appreciate the size increase. At the same time, I didn't want too large of a laptop, since mobility is crucial, too. This computer strikes a perfect balance.

4. Windows 7 Home Premium. May seem like a generic thing to point out, but almost every other netbook uses Windows 7 Starter. The Starter version of Windows 7 lacks several important features behind the scenes, and a few upfront, too.

I purchased this laptop three days ago, just got it this morning, and so far it's wonderful. This is my first-ever laptop, and I spent a lot of time researching the perfect one for me. Thank you so much to the K.McDowell, who's review sold me on this buy.
Here are my pros/cons:

Pros:
Great look;not a fingerprint magnet,thank goodness. Fingerprints all over everything annoy more that it should.
Ultra Portable; Slim and light, big enough for movies but small enough to fit in my purse, perfect on the go laptop.
Windows 7 home premium; I absolutely LOVE this os. I couldn't ask for anything better.
Keyboard is great, having to adjust to it, but that's fine.
Runs very quiet, I can't hear a thing.
Multi-gesture mouse thing is pretty awesome! I love this feature, and it sure does come in handy.

This unit seems to be very cool. I haven't had problems with my hands getting hot while I type. Occasionally the bpttom will get heated when I'm all cozy in my bed, but I can hold it up to my bedside lamp and it will cool off within a minute or two(while the laptop is still up and running).

250 HDD, plenty of space for me, and then some. I wasn't looking to replace my desktop, but I could use this for almost everything that I could possibly need

Memory is expandable which you won't find a lot in smaller computers. It came pre-installed with 3GB, plenty enough to run Windows 7 and then some. Expandable memory up to 4GB, really not bad AT ALL considering the size of the computer.
Netbook size without the hassle and slow quality of smaller models. The specs on this model are MUCH better.

HDMI port is AWESOME! I can easily hook this computer up to the tv and display netflix or whatever I need.

OK, I am not really computer literate but I can do what needs to be done. I did not want a heavy computer. My last laptop was a toshiba satelite but boy was it heavy. This little thing weighs 3 lbs. I love the full key board since I do type reports. I LOVE all the little features. Its fast, dependable, and did I say light weight. We purchased the little Acer aspirea netbook for $248 as an extra computer for my husband just to surf and look around. He loves his and we were quite amazed at what you got for $248. That is why we decided to go with the Acer again. I can't imagine someone not liking this. Setup was done in 10 minutes and your ready to go. Of course I know people do several different things and have different expectations but for me this is great. I surf, do reports, download pics, do alot of business and this is quite fast. I know some people have to find something wrong, And write about RAM and all of that. Which as soon as I start reading a review and see that I automatically skip to the next. Hope this helps and I would again....highly recommend this laptop/netbook.

I had been using Samsung NC10 and it an excellent product but a hear and half later, screen kept blacking out. I also needed a faster and higher resolution netbook.

My requirements in priority order-

weight - because I carry my laptop almost everywhere - around 3 lbs is good

fast (I multitask between word docs, online groups, emails, and surfing for research) - I don't play games, once in a long while, maybe scrabble or other word games.

screen resolution better than 1080 x 600 that is native to 10 inch netbooks

windows 7 premium

keyboard must be very user friendly

touchpad must be be very user friendly

I have tried

Asus Disney Slimed netbook - 10 inch
- SLOW, terrible screen resolution but that cld be me since I was already looking for higher resolution, but the speed from the time I opened that laptop bothered me so much I returned it that same week.

Acer Aspire AO721 - 11 inch
- FAST, faster than the Disney and I knew that before I got it, weight was good, gorgeous looking (mesh black is great for no fingerprints), but this 11 inch although had higher resolution, had terribly small fonts when I open the screen (smaller than the current Acer AS1551 I am now reviewing), so small that I had a headache from the beginning, and I thought, okay I can magnify, zoom, but the touchpad was so hard to use and I don't want to use an external mouse. I probably cld have adjusted the touchpad properties but the speed was not as fast I wld have liked. I loved the look - usually I don't like a black laptop (especially glossy and a black keyboard - I have used white and white keyboard is really easy on the eyes).

Asus Ul20a - 12 inch
- Stated 3.
