REVIEW: I was looking for an 11"-13" small laptop or netbook that could web surf, blog, and run MS Office. I also wanted to be able to handle basic, on-the-fly photo editing & design using Adobe CS5. Lastly, I needed something that could run for at least 6 hours on battery and had a full-size keyboard. Going with the Acer Aspire One 722 was a good choice price wise and provided a power efficient option that met my needs while on the road. Hopefully, you find this review helpful.
After testing it without any upgrades for a week, it was way faster than the Atom netbooks I've used in the past and faster than my old 11.6" Acer AS1410 Core2 Solo from last year. However, I wanted a bit more grunt power and speed. Upgrading the hard drive and memory seemed like a good decision, and it has turned this entry level PC into something on par with most mid-range desktops. Here are the upgrades I made:
* Crucial C300 2.5" 128GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
* G.SKILL 4GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3-1333 PC3-10600 Unbuffered Non-ECC
Being that this is a review for the Acer Aspire One 722, it's only fair to give you the PROS and CONS without factoring in the upgrades.
* Amazing keyboard - Huge buttons, nice click and very little flex. Buttons are where they should be.Read more ›
The netbook itself is very thin and light and has a good keyboard that is a little bigger than your typical one on a 10" netbook. It has a 250GB HDD, standard webcam, mic, and card reader. Another thing I should mention is that it has two speakers on the bottom (left & right) and is louder than other Acer netbooks I've had that only have one speaker.
I wiped the HDD when I got it and installed Win7 Ultimate x64. I liked that it came with 2GB RAM as most netbooks in this price range only come with 1GB, but even then, this netbook runs even better when you upgrade to 4GB RAM. The CPU may run at 1GHz, but don't be fooled as it handles well, has great benchmarks, and is comparable to other netbooks I've had with Intel Atom CPUs that ran at up to 1.66GHz. That's mostly because it has the killer ATI Radeon HD 6250 video card that can play any video or flash game I throw at it with no hogging up a lot of the CPU (be sure to install proper codecs like k-lite).
The screen is a good size at 11.6" (not too big, not too small, I think) and is really bright and vivid with 720p resolution (1366x768) so you don't have to deal with cramped up desktops and web surfing like on other netbooks. It outputs 1080p video perfectly and I am able to watch a show or movie on my TV via HDMI output and be surfing the web or be typing a document at the same time with no noticeable lag.Read more ›
1) Cosmetic: The appearance is actually kind of nice. The ripple effect on the case is actually quite attractive, all my friends who have seen it(I have the espresso black) really thought it was interesting to look at versus the standard flat black cover most netbooks have. My only issue is the slick shiny plastic they use is somewhat of a finger print magnet, but nothing a simply cloth wiped crossed once or twice wont fix. It is also extremely light and easy to carry will fit in most backpacks and slingbags with ease.
2.) Functionality: It comes with Windows 7 64bit so pretty much it is a fully functional little laptop, it will run just about any movie or YouTube out there, currently I have been watching HBOGO and other movies on it. I cannot speak of it for gaming even though it is DX11 compliant, I have not installed any games on it since that was not the reason I purchased it. My only issue so far is the 2 Gigs of ram that it comes with installed. Acer installed Windows 7 64bit which will allows the Operating system to recognize more then 3.5 gigs of rams at one time. That being said, I'm not sure why Acer did not just install a 4gig stick of ram from the factory. I realize this might have raised the price by $20 to $30, but imho it would have been worth it.
Overall a really great netbook for the price, I would have loved the extra ram and would have really loved for Acer to release a netbook with the C-350 APU chip instead, but for the most part this will handle pretty much anything I need at the moment and is comparable to most 2-3 yr old laptops that you might have now.
