Asus VE228H 21.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: -1080
-LED backlight

Cons: -Not the greatest quality speakers
-Switching between inputs could be better
-Majority of the monitor is glossy black

Other Thoughts: This monitor is fantastic looking. Unfortunately mine has a dead pixel. However aside from that this monitor is simply fantastic. Everything looks clear and bright. Colors look good. The speakers aren't that bad but that that great either. They are adequate enough for say playing a PS3 on it. Overall this monitor is great for the price.

Intel Core i5-2300 Sandy Bridge Quad-Core 2.8GHz (3.1GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W BX80623I52300 Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 2000
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Fast
-Quad Core

Cons: -No Overclocking
-No Hyperthreading
-Intel's pushpin heatsink

Other Thoughts: Quite the fantastic CPU. Granted this isn't the sought after 2500k but this one still does the job. Moved from an e5400 and the increase in speed is nice. After installing Battlefield 3 ran so much smoother. Also doing video encoding has become simply amazing. So much fast than my old dual core. Overall if you know what's its missing and you still opt for this CPU you won't be disappointed.

Acer Aspire One AO522-BZ897 Diamond Black AMD Dual-Core Processor C-50 (1.00 GHz) 10.1
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: - AMD Fusion
- 1280x720 Resolution
- Ability to do some gaming
- Hi resolution video playback

Cons: - Windows 7 Starter
- 1GB of RAM
- Glossy finish + glossy screen
- Mono speaker
- No easy access panel

Other Thoughts: Well I needed a netbook for school work but was also looking to do some light gaming, and wow I was in for a surprise. I picked this up with a 2GB RAM upgrade and I upgraded the OS to 7 Home Basic. This thing can playback both 720 and 1080 video with no lag. Also I was surprised how well this netbook can game. So far I've tried:

-Killing Floor
-Civilization 4
- Magicka
- Counter-Strike 1.6
- Half Life
- Minecraft

All of the above are playable with the exception of Minecraft, but if you wait for the level to generate then it become playable. All of this and I'm still trying out other games.

I would recommend this in a heartbeat. Even with all the cons they are easily looked past when you see the performance of this netbook. Its quite the powerhouse for a 10 inch netbook.
