There are only two USB ports (one 2.0 and one 3.0), but fortunately, it has bluetooth built-in, so you can use it if you have bluetooth mouse or keyboard.
It comes with 4GB DDR3L (2GB on board and 2GB on a slot). It was upgraded to 10GB (2+8GB), but if you plan to upgrade to 10GB, make sure you get 1.35V DDR3 or it won't work. Both battery and RAM are easily accessible with a philips screwdriver.
The unit is very light and easy to carry even with one hand and the screen is open. The touchpad is a bit too sensitive for me and I had to adjust a bit to make it works normally.
As the CPU is only 1GHz quad-core, it works fine with Office, E-book reading, internet browsing, and video watching up to 720p. Tested with 1080p youtube and it looks OK with occasional hiccup. You can use HDMI with mini display adapter, which is used for MacBook Air, to connect to TV.
Now I have to tell there's a major software flaw with AMD Vision Center, and Acer must read it and investigate and fix. DO NOT adjust your internal screen with Vision Center, but you should use Windows Color Setting instead (or just use FN+left/right to adjust brightness). Failure to do will cause dark screen for incorrect Gamma and you have no way to fix, and gradually you have to do factory reset (factory renew and system restore don't work).
I called it "netbook" because the performance is on the top of the category (good screen, quad-core processor, up to 10GB RAM), but it is basic in performance as a regular laptop. If you're looking for a unit with balance of lightweight, performance, and price, this is a right one for you.
This little notebook is far better then some of the earlier Intel Atom based Netbook's but its not on par with what I consider to be more then minimal performance. Acer puts far too much junk software on this little machine. The trial Security suite pretty much brings it to a standstill as it scans. Once you remove the suite the PC becomes much more responsive. Why these PC makers continue to reduce the user experience with poorly matched software is beyond me?
Once I managed to remove all the junkware and trialware. I found the Acer to be a much more acceptable small notebook.
My only disappointment is the second battery is not available from Acer. Without it, the battery life is about 3 hours.
1. Serving as a decorative, high-tech sculpture on your desk
2. Throwing things at, or maybe throwing up on if no sink or toilet is nearby
3. Tossing into a nearby river or stream, or, in absence of a large body of water, a trash can
Things this laptop is NOT good for:
1. Word processing
2. Saving files
3. Conducting simple Internet searches
4. Sending or receiving email
5. Maintaining battery life or simply remaining ON during any critical moment of its use
Two stars for its sleek little shape and size and the fact that it's very, very lightweight. It was fairly inexpensive, but not inexpensive enough for its many problems. I'd say I've never hated a computer or piece of electronic equipment more than this one. And don't even get me started on Windows 8. #epicfail
This computer is so slow it is almost unbelievable. It cannot reliably perform even the most basic functions. I have recurring problems with receiving and sending e-mail. Sending an order to my printer to print on both sides of the paper works every time with every computer in the house except mine. With my computer, it will obey the command to print on both sides maybe every 4th or 5th time. The rest of the time the document prints single-sided wasting paper, toner, and when I need to cram a lot of information into a notebook I can carry everyday it also wastes space and makes my backpack heavier.
This computer cannot even be relied upon to malfunction in the same way consistently. Drop down boxes appear and disappear fairly much at random. If I find a control that works for me, the next time I want it, finding that control again will takes an inordinate amount of time.
This computer resets its default settings on its own. If I set it to default to my actual printer, it may stay that way for a few days, but then one day,I after running to the printer two or three times trying to figure out what is wrong with it, I will realize the default setting has magically changed to that silly-ass, useless OneNote crap.Read more ›
