Acer Aspire One AO532h


First things first: This is not a revolution. Although the Acer Aspire One AO532h boasts Intel's new Pine Trail processor, the Atom N450, it's no game changer. Instead, think of it as a highly polished evolution of the standard netbook.

Well-crafted; decent performance; excellent battery life; roomy hard drive; inexpensive

Still just an Atom-powered netbook; mushy keys; fingerprint magnet

Bloatware notwithstanding—and we definitely recommend you run PC Decrapifier on this machine as soon as you get it—the Aspire One AO532h is a well-crafted, refined, inexpensive netbook. As such, it is near the top of its class. But with the rise of...

Acer Aspire One 532h-Intel's Pine Trail Platform


This one is a brand new netbook by Acer, a brand that has the credit of being one of the earliest adopters of Intel's new Pine Trail system, which, in the case of netbooks, mainly comprises the new Atom N450, and a new chipset called the Intel NM10. In...

At a price of Rs.19,776, this netbook comes at a very slight premium to the price in this category, but since it’s a new technology with weighable improvements in battery life, and also slight improvements in CPU heavy performance tasks, we can...

Review Acer Aspire One 532 Netbook


The „One“ and Only? Aspire One 532, the newest netbook from Acer,

Stylish design; Price; Model variety; Multi-in-1 cardreader; Intel Atom N450 processor; Long battery life; Matt display; Free mini PCI-Express slot

Hard-to-access USB ports; Meagre delivery contents; Keyboard, sensitive display cover; Restricted full resolution

All new netbooks with Intel Atom N450 Prozessor, integrated GMA 3150 graphics and 10.1-inch screen, among others, e.g., the Asus Eee PC 1005PE, the Eee PC 1008P, the Samsung N220, MSI U135, and the Dell Mini 1012 netbook.

Acer Aspire One 532h-2588


When the Apple iPad shipped, pundits noted that netbook sales declined. In fact, the iPad had little to do with the decline in netbook shipments--the decline had already begun well before Apple's tablet arrived in the hands of enthusiastic users.

Inexpensive ; Very compact

Display resolution is too limited ; Keyboard and touchpad are frustrating

In the 532h-2588, Acer has produced a very average netbook at a relatively low price, with all the drawbacks and strengths of the class.

Acer Aspire One 532h-2326


Acer is looking to stay ahead in the netbook market with its Aspire One 532h. Though it's not a tremendous upgrade over the previous Aspire One models, the 532h is a solid, decently priced netbook. Acer may have skimped a little on the keyboard and...

Machine has a sturdy overall feel ; Inexpensive

Keyboard very slippery and hard to type on ; Touchpad/mouse buttons poorly designed

The Aspire One 532h is reasonably priced, but the keyboard and touchpad could use a makeover.

Acer Aspire One 532h-2326


Acer has become one of the most successful purveyors of Netbooks by relying on a simple premise: price beats everything. While HP, Dell, and others give lip service to low-end models while upselling you toward $500 Netbooks, the Acer Aspire One series...

Solid Netbook for less than $300; great battery life.

Few frills; lackluster touch pad.

The Acer Aspire One 532h-2326 is just as good for basic tasks as Netbooks costing $100 more, making it a solid sub-$300 option.

Acer Aspire One (532h-2326)


The Acer Aspire One (532h-2326) boasts nearly 10 hours of battery life and new and improved keyboard, but looks weigh this netbook down.

Almost 10 hours of battery life with new platform. Keyboard is now 93% of full size. Wider touchpad than its predecessor. Very inexpensive. New, lighter AC adapter

Lacks design appeal. Mouse buttons need tuning

Acer Aspire One (AO532h-2268)


The Acer Aspire One (AO532h-2268) is still one of the most inexpensive netbooks in the business and Costco is selling this model with a 2-year warranty and over 9 hours of battery life.

Over 9 hours of battery life with new Intel parts. Keyboard is now 93% of full size. Wider touchpad than its predecessor. Very inexpensive. New, lighter AC adapter. Two-year warranty

Lacks design appeal. Mouse buttons need tuning

Sleek two-tone design, Long battery life, Relatively large, textured touchpad, Above-average audio quality

After playing a Hulu video at full screen for 15 minutes, the touchpad on the 532h registered 92 degrees Fahrenheit, the space between the G and H keys was 91 degrees, and the middle of the underside reached 97 degrees. While we don't consider any this...

Acer Aspire One 532h review


Acer's maintained a steady lead in the race to sell as many netbooks as possible in the past year. That's largely because the Taiwanese manufacturer

Very affordable ; New Intel Atom Pine Trail processor ; Well-spaced keyboard

Unacceptably glossy lid ; Cramped touchpad ; Poor viewing angles

Product Specifications

Email, blog, chat and surf all you want! Aspire ONE 532H features a processor for netbooks that handles Internet multitasking easily, delivering better performance than previous-generation processors while lowering power consumption to extend battery life. The large-capacity hard disk drive stores tons of music and videos, while the multi-in-1 card reader enables convenient transfer of photos from a digital camera or other mobile device. The Aspire ONE 532H is the size of a small folder, yet the keyboard is 93% standard size with large keys for better typing. The compact design features a battery that fits flush into the chassis, further streamlining the netbook's look. The multi-gesture touchpad gives you total control over your documents and photos with simple two-finger motions, and the anti-slip microbead texture of the touchpad offers more precise control and a nice feel.
