5 out of 5 eggsOutstanding Netbook

Pros: Solid well-built netbook. Larger display (11.6" vs 10.2") vs standard netbook and greater resolution (1366 x 768 vs 1024 x 600). The screen provides a bright clear display. Two memory slots capable of holding a total of 4GB. Processing speed is more than adequate for its intent (homework, note-taking and internet at college). Wireless device easily identified and connected to my home network. Built-in webcam is capable for Skype. Readily identified and connected to a Liteon eNAU108 external DVD player. Provided enough power to the device that only one of the two USB plugs for the DVD player needed to be plugged in. Recovery media was created quickly and easily.

Cons: None really. I wish laptop manufacturers would include the Windows media with the units since we are paying for a license.

Other Thoughts: Purchased for my son for use at college. Installed an extra 2GB of memory with no problem. Windows identified the CPU as a K145 / 1.8 GHz processor vs. the stated K125 / 1.7 GHz. A search found an article (12/13/2010) that said Acer was starting to put this CPU into this netbook. Acer's website stated that the memory was DDR3 1066. When I went to install the memory that I ordered with the netbook I found that the 2GB that came with the unit was DDR3 1333. I returned the ordered DDR3 1066 memory and purchased DDR3 1333 memory but had to pay return shipping charges and a restocking fee. My son has been pleased with the unit. He has been able to play DVD's on it while using Skype with no problems.

5 out of 5 eggsSuper cool

Pros: Duel core and ati graphics. This snappy little thing is an amazing work horse. Its very thin and still uses a 2.5 inch hdd. other netbooks are uses those tiny hard to replace or upgrade ssd which jack up the price. For the hard ware that matters (cpu and gpu and ddr3) its a bomb for the price.

Cons: Some crappier netbooks run snappier stock. But that's why I said it its a good price. The hdd is slow. you need to upgrade both the hdd and the ram for full potential. I almost think acer tossed the 5400 rpm hdd and the slowest ram with the intent to encourage how you want to upgrade while keeping the price affordable. for 4 gigs of faster ram and 350 7200 hdd I spent 210$ on making a monster out of this thing. The touch pad is a bit lame but hardly a big ordeal. Its works fine but there is better out there.

Other Thoughts: stock fallout new vegas runs the first 10 minutes at low settings at very playable framrate. Thats pretty darn cool for a netbook.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Book

Pros: As of this review, this item is out of stock at NewEgg.

All I can say is, I'm glad I bought it when I did.

It's a good little unit, and I can tell the DDR3 memory and 1.70ghz processor is considerably more horsey than the other Acer notebook I own.

Cons: None, really.

Other Thoughts: I wish Acer would make these with a 12.1 inch screen, otherwise this is a good little computer.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: - The AMD cpu is actually clocked at 1.8. It is fast and can easily match/outperform atom processors.
- The resolution is very nice and crisp.
- The keys are very nice and large enough to not feel cramped while typing
- The ati 4225 is very nice and can actually run some recent games on medium or low settings.
- 2gb of ddr3 1066 ram, and you can add another stick to have 4gb max (which I plan on doing)
-Plays 720p and 1080p and other formats easily, listen to music and surf the internet quite well.
-Windows 7 64 bit

Cons: -The hard drive is slow and sometimes takes a long time to respond when trying to open files/programs. I am planning on getting a 7200rmp WD 500GB instead, or you could go with a SSD if you want. Anything is better then the stock hard drive.
-Tons of boatware. You can just uninstall those, do a defrag and use CCleaner to clean the registry. You can also just reformat if you really want too.
-The touch pad is by far the biggest con, as it is a pain to use due to it not being sensitive, and sometimes to sensitive. You end up hitting the wrong buttons or double clicking when you don't mean too. I would suggest getting a wireless mouse to make up for this.

Other Thoughts: Overall, this is an excellent netbook, with the ability to get a better and bigger hard drive, and some more ram to increase this things performance even further. Roughly an additional 75 bucks and you will still have spent under 500 dollars. This netbook will the tasks you want it to, such as surfing the internet, watching movies, listening to music, or anything related to work, writing papers, etc. Even a little gaming if you want :)

5 out of 5 eggsGreat purchase and product

Pros: Size - great combination of compactness, portability, but big enough screen and higher resolution than a typical netbook. After a fresh install of Windows 7 to remove bloatware and adding another 2 gigs of ram, this baby runs like a champ. Keyboard takes some adjustment coming from a larger laptop, but it doesnt flex much at all and unlike many netbooks, is actually fullsize. The keys don't make a ton of noise. The HD is quiet and everything just works great.

Cons: The touchpad is the weakest component. It is very small and is not very easy to use for someone with large hands. Thats really it tho.

Other Thoughts: Main use is for college and school work, and it handles everything very well that I use it for.

5 out of 5 eggsPoor Mans'c Mac Air

Pros: Great netbook! Multitouch pad works great. Love the keyboard - best of my three netbooks. I swapped the hard drive for a 60gb OCZ SSD and added a second stick of 2gb DDR3. Fot a netbook this puppy flies. The graphics rival my Toshiba notebook and is fine for casual gaming and HD movies. HULU, Netflix and VUDU play flawlessly.

Even after adding the SSD and extra DDR3 it was about 1/3 the price of a Macbook Air and just as capable IMO. it goes with me everywhere.

Cons: Battery life is not the greatest. Realitically I get about 3-4 hours.

1 out of 5 eggsAwful Machine!

Pros: This is my first Windows 7 machine. I liked it enough to install Win 7 Pro on my home desktop. It is also a very thin unit, which is a good thing. The blue LED in the power button is kinda pretty too.

Cons: The flat keyboard is only slightly better than typing on a touch screen. I didn't realize before this, but I like keys that have a shape to them -- with a little concave to them. Second thing is the speakers. While I don't expect night-club level music from a small unit like this, even streaming voices at max volume are hard to hear. My iPhone is louder.

The big issue is the touchpad. I have no idea why Acer decided to make the surface of the pad the same as the rest of the unit. It seems to suffer from loss of sensitivity. The grainy brushed aluminum feel is not conducive to good cursor control. This machine has a feature called "multi-gesture," so you can pinch and spread like an iPhone. MULTI-GESTURE DOES NOT WORK! The cursor goes all over the place during operation, even with some phantom hyperlink activations. There is very sporadic control of the cursor on this computer, making it nearly useless, and possibly dangerous. Mine is going back to the store.

Other Thoughts: Yeah it's cute, but control of the cursor is a must. It's like having a nice car with bad steering and brakes. I have had to find the jumping cursor three times during the writing of this review!

5 out of 5 eggsSurprising For a Netbook...

Pros: Keyboard: Great feel. Isolated (chicklet) type makes for good accuracy despite it's small size; no flex.

Display: Crisp and vivid. It doesn't feel as congested as 10" flavors with a slightly higher native resolution too. HDMI Out performs flawlessly. Performance still solid even at 1920x1080 (1080p).

Audio: Excellent. Also. the HDMI audio pass through to your TV is not as touchy as other implementations. Not distorted or low at all at reasonable volumes.

Performance: VERY Surprised. This is a single core implementation and it manages web browsing, good response times and HD video!

Construction: Solid feel and well laid out. The front below the keyboard is brushed aluminum that's pleasant looking and for the fingerprint freaks won't cause them to have a stroke. The top half will smudge though around the power button and the display bezel. The lid is textured and sturdy.

Weight: Extremely light with a small, very portable AC adapter. No brick here.

Cons: Can't find much wrong with it worth mentioning. It does it's job exceedingly well. For what it is, I'm very impressed.

Other Thoughts: It offers little in the way of multi-tasking. You will rather easily hit a wall. I'd imagine a dual core version of this would be absolutely phenomenal, but for a single core (considering it's clock speed) I'm floored. You're not buying this as a workhorse, you're buying it as a convenience and it delivers. For word processing, media and web browsing it's a joy!

The CPU is bottle necking the GPU it seems. Netbooks are pretty application specific so you wouldn't get this for gaming anyway.

Battery life is reporting just over 3 hours, but I haven't tweaked it yet for that. If you're taking it to class, usually there's somewhere you can grab some juice before your next gambit and it does charge pretty quickly so It'll supply you with a class or two's worth of charge. Could be better, but not enough to knock an egg off considering what it does for you.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Netbook - Great PC

Pros: Very light ~3lbs
Very Thin ~1inch
VERY Good build quality.
Very Bright screen. (LED-LCD is bright, vivid and 720p)
2gb DDR3
250Gb HDD
Wireless N
1080p 7.1channel audio output via HDMI

Only $400.

Cons: Still a single core cpu. Although I am probably the definition of a power user and I'll tax it to %100 occasionally; let me tell you...This thing's got WHEELS for a netbook.

Battery life is about 3-4hrs when going Crazy (1080p movies, surfing, installing apps, photoshop, etc. with the screen set to maximum brightness)

Other Thoughts: I've got a 6core 4ghz, ssd, dx11 monster at home and this thing does not feel slow. (I did a clean install of W7 HP)

I purchased this to download drivers, diagnose networks, etc while doing on-site PC repairs. I find myself using it constantly and showing it off to anyone who will look. I love it! Best value for $400 that I ever could have asked for. Buy it, love it
