The netbook is a great simplistic design, very lightweight and compact, perfect for traveling or school. It has an SD card slot for your Digital Camera, etc. 3 USB 2.0 ports, a VGA-out port (great if you wanna use the netbook with a projector), a Headphone and Microphone port, and a kensington lock slot (great if you wanna physically lock up your computer).
The keyboard is a chiclet key style, although this looks nice, the keyboard is forgettable, and by that I mean there is no way to physically remember what key your fingers are touching. This is definitely a shortcoming for the device.
The trackpad is pretty cool, it has your typical tracking area and vertical scroll off to the side, but what makes this interesting is Acer has bundeled software which lets you use multi-touch gestures. a two-finger swipe to the left will act like the "back" button, two fingers in a circle would be "refresh", it's nifty, but the lack of speed on some commands makes it more of a novelty.
The screen is bright and beautiful, of course at maximum brightness, its an LED screen so it doesn't use alot of battery power.
The computer comes with Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g), a built-in microphone, and a 0.3Mp camera. Although the camera's specs aren't great, it still looked good when testing with Ustream and Google Video chat.
The other thing you'll want to remember is this IS windows 7 Starter, so you do get some nice features that come with Windows 7 Home, Pro, etc. You are missing some basic functions. If you want to change the desktop background... you can't, personalize the sounds... nope.Read more ›
For the first time in 25 years of portable computing, I have no worries -- zero -- about running out of power during a working day. This is amazing. The battery lasts and lasts... you never have to plug it in, either in your office or at customers... just at night, like a cell phone.
As a multimedia designer, I work with words, pictures, motion graphics, and lightweight web code. Programs I use at work run perfectly on this small computer: Framemaker, Xara Xtreme Pro, an older version of Photoshop, Open Office, Audacity, and Soundslides for rapid presentations with audio. If you are a writer or an illustrator, you can do a lot with this device... anywhere you go. Everything works as advertised... the wifi is easy to use, screen quality is great, and, as a non-touch-typist, the keyboard suits me just fine.
This PC is beautiful right out of the box. A lovely, simple, slightly rounded plastic shell. And Windows 7 Starter is a kick -- it is faster and easier to use than Vista or XP. All my old programs (except Ultraedit, a text editor) installed right away. Including a contact/filing program I've been using since Win 95! Talk about backward compatibility! Windows 7 Starter's only drawback: it won't let you change the desktop background, but the default blue color works well for me.
This is the perfect way to deliver a presentation. It has a plug for a projector... but, for sales, you can sit with a prospect (anywhere) and just go through your show on the bright screen and never worry about the battery failing.
Decided to buy this right after the Apple iPad demo, where I found out that the iPad couldn't run Flash graphics (hey, I make motion graphics!)... and I can tell you that Apple's HTML5 idea is nonsense...Read more ›
The only negatives I can see so far is the lack of bluetooth connectivity but I had to return a Samsung netbook due to it losing the bluetooth and wifi connections after about an hour of surfing. Also there are no recovery discs and the user needs to burn them themselves, one for system (2 discs needed) and one for the drivers (one disc needed). Having owned Acer products before I was prepared for this and had ordered an external dvd drive along with the netbook to create them before setting up and using the unit.
I have seen comments about the screen size. Yes it is small but the clarity on the Acer is the sharpest and brightest I have seen. As a person with "coke bottle" glasses I have no problems seeing the screen.
All in all a good netbook but not a laptop. I do not game and use it only for surfing, email and music on the go (along with surfing in bed using an attached usb light). It is just what the doctor ordered for my needs.
The first thing I did was open up the unit and replace the memory module with the new 2Gig unit.
Here's a little tip; do the memory upgrade first, then installing the battery pack. By doing this you're less likely to damage the Netbook and/or memory. I fired up the little Netbook and check the memory in the system BIOS and in Windows, I was seeing all 2gigs of memory.
Next I and dumped the Windows Home it came with and installed Windows 7 home premium (64bit) from a USB flash drive that I had set up ahead of time. Once I had Windows up and running, I went ahead in and took advantage of the built in SD card reader to setup Windows memory boost using a 4Gig high-speed SD card.Read more ›

With limited use so far, I would rate this netbook as very good. I purchased an external Samsung DVD burner at the same time and had no problems with device recognition. Read morePublished on February 16, 2012 by Mike

I never purchased an ACER product before and wanted to give it a try because it looked like a great buy. Unfortunately, this wasn't a good purchase. The netbook is extremely slow. Read morePublished on September 29, 2011 by For Mommies
