5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Machine, November 6, 2011
By 
This review is from: Acer Aspire One AO722-0473 11.6-Inch HD Netbook (1 GHz AMD Fusion C-60 Processor, 2GB DDR3, 320GB HDD, AMD Radeon HD 6290, Windows 7 Home Premium) Espresso Black (Personal Computers)
If you are looking for a laptop with the portable convenience of a netbook, but with the nearly full functionality of a larger laptop, then look no farther - this 722-473 model is it! The only thing you are not going to have compared to a larger laptop is a cd/dvd drive and a 10-key.

The little bit larger screen on this machine, than found on most notebooks, is great and does not compromise the take-everywhere convenience that it still provides.

It comes preloaded loaded with Word and Excel starter, which offers almost the full functionality of the full versions. So, you really don't need to worry about installing office suite if all you need is word and spreadsheet capabilities.

Even with just the 2GB of RAM that it comes with, it's remarkably fast. But, I did go ahead and order the 4GB RAM upgrade just because it is so cheap - $24. I've not installed the 4GB yet so can't comment on any improvement in speed.

I'm getting about 5 to 6 hours of battery life with what I would consider normal use.

Paid $197 for this 722-473 model on sale at Target. Even at the regular price this machine is a fantastic value!

I got the same deal today at Target --- I was looking for a Netbook for traveling and couldn't resist the incredible price! Like yourself, I also ordered the 4GB SODIMM. What an amazing deal!

Got this as well from Target's super weekend deal! I'm having trouble getting 7 hours of battery life from it - am running it with the settings right out of the box. Any suggestions to dial up the battery life would be helpful.
