Review Acer Aspire One 721 Notebook


Netbook with subnotebook performance, round two. Like the recent

good application performance; usable graphic performance; quiet; nice input devices; communication equipment (3G and Bluetooth 3.0 optional)

reflective display; limited display brightness; relatively short battery life

Pine Trail is too week, we can refer you to the Nvidia Ion, such as in the Samsung N510 or small subnotebooks.

Acer Aspire One 721-3574


If you've lusted after Acer's TimelineX 1830T ultraportable but don't have $700, you can get much the same experience from the company's $430 (as of 8/25/2010) Aspire One 721 netbook. The two units are outwardly identical, but the 721 substitutes a far...

Smooth video ; Very portable

Lackluster input ergonomics ; Sluggish application load times

If you're not expecting great performance, this is a nice step up from a netbook.

On the surface Acer's 10.1-inch Aspire One 521 and 11.6-inch Aspire One 721 appear to be fairly run-of-the-mill netbooks -- or ultraportables for those

Very thin design ; Great HD and Flash playback ; Extremely affordable

Less than four hours of battery life ; Keyboard is too flat ; Loose screen bezel

Acer Aspire One 721 review


Acer sent me an Aspire One 721 to review, and the specs are quite similar to those of its smaller cousin. But the case is bigger, the display can handle more pixels, and the laptop comes with a more powerful version of Windows 7. On the other hand,...

Acer Asire One 721


This new Acer Aspire One 721 is a pretty interesting unit. It sits between the Aspire One 751 running the low-power Atom Z520 and the Timeline 1801tz running a dual-core Pentium ULV. Check our full review after the jump.

The Aspire One 721 is selling in stores for a suggested retail price of Php24,900 - almost the price of a regular netbook but a performance of an ultraportable. It offers a compromise between system performance and battery life but at that price point,...
