Review Acer Aspire One 531 Netbook

 

Heir to the Throne? Acer already landed a direct hit with the fir

Attractive but subtle design; Very slim case weighing just 1220 grams; Good workmanship; Multi-touch touchpad; Bright display with good illumination; Low system noise in office use; Good sound production; Excellent battery life

Small numeric keys; Reflective display is problematic in use outdoors; High heat emissions possible under load

Everything that has the guts to be called a netbook, or not: Asus Eee1002HA, Samsung NC10. Rather less: Acer Aspire One D150.

Acer Aspire One 531 notebook - Pocket-lint

 

Acer has impressed on several occasions with its cut-priced netbooks, but its Aspire One lags behind rivals when it comes to quality and usability. The

Thin and neat design, build quality, bright screen

Keyboard could be larger, not revolutionary, average battery life

The Aspire One 531 doesn’t offer anything genuinely new, but it’s one of the nicest netbooks available when it comes to styling and quality. Although it comes in at the top end of the Aspire One range, it’s well equipped, with the option of 3G/HSDPA,...

Acer Aspire One 531 Pro review

 

Acer's latest is an austere looking netbook – but is there more to the 531 than meets the eye?

Functional rather than fun, but one of the best netbooks available for the price

Acer Aspire One 531 review

 

The original Acer Aspire One has proved one of the best selling netbooks, we hear, helped along by its competitive price circa-£200. That first model had a 9in screen and ran a friendly graphical Linux operating system; now we find Acer has kept the...

Unlike the original Aspire One, there’s less to get excited about by this me-too Windows netbook. But while it offers the usual roster of netbook facilities, there is the just-higher than average netbook speed performance, and the distinction of two...

Great little computer is a mini size.

 

I got this for my wife as a replacement for the one she left behind with family in Russia. I was very impressed with the screen clarity. I was able to read it from a good distance and had no need to squint. The only drawback was a drive to load...

Best Deal

 

I just received the laptop and....it's great!! I'm used to huge laptops (17inchs) so this one threw me off little. But as I played with it a little I grew to love it. Great product for a AMAZING PRICE!

Great little computer at an awesome price!

 

My little Acer One was stolen from me today, and I'm planning to buy another to replace it. I never had any problems with it, and it was light and easy to carry in my backpack. I had a 3-cell battery, which was barely adequate, so I suggest the 6-cell....

Great Netbook!

 

This is my second Acer Aspire netbook, we loved the first so much my daughter took it away from me. This time got the 6-cell battery, but her's was long lasting even with the 3 cell. It's an excellent choice for on the go use. Tight keyboard can be a...

Excellent Netbook!

 

Purchased 2 units. Both arrived without blemish. Excellent performance for a netbook. Everything functions as good as expected or better. It drives a larger monitor without problem. Antivirus software furnished, pesters you with popups and it is...
