5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome netbook much better value than a 10", October 16, 2011

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)
I was very happy with my 10.1" Asus 1001P-PU17 but I cracked the screen while on vacation and need a replacement fast. While browsing Amazon I noticed this Acer was a bigger screen, more RAM and a bigger HD (320GB vs 250GB Asus) another big plus was Windows 7 Home Premium instead of Windows starter for just a few dollars more than the Asus sell for. I am extremely happy with it so far. It is actually lighter and thinner than the Asus and the battery life is about 6hrs (which is less than the Asus so that is the one compromise I made). The screen is very crisp and Netflix looks really clear. Highly recommended and this time I bought accidental protection for $25 through Safeware. The only negative is the glossy case - I would have much preferred something textured that does not show smudges.

Absolutely agree, this has to be the best value for a laptop out there, just for the Win7 home premium alone, not the starter version standard on the 10" netbooks. Very portable yet bigger screen and full sized keyboard, minus the 10 key.
Not a big fan of the ripple design on the case, as for the fingerprint magnet I have heard that applying turtle wax car wax will not show smudges, if you're the type for home projects, arts and crafts. I've even considered spraying it with a Krylon spray paint, which comes in metallic colors, wonder how chrome would look?
