Review Acer Aspire One 721 Notebook


Netbook with subnotebook performance, round two. Like the recently tested Aspire One 521, the Aspire One 721 shows up in 11.6" format with Athlon II Neo, DDR3-RAM, ATI HD4225 and HDMI and goes head to head with the Intel-based netbook competition.

good application performance, usable graphic performance, quiet, nice input devices, communication equipment (3G and Bluetooth 3.0 optional), The performance plus the AMD basis in comparison to Atom netbooks

reflective display, limited display brightness, relatively short battery life, A stronger battery for longer runtimes, a brighter display

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.

Acer Aspire One 521 and 721 review


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 721-3574 Review - A Review of the Acer Aspire One 721-3574


Sophisticated, sleek design, Comfortable full-size keyboard, Bright and crisp display, Plays mainstream games and HD video

Battery life way too short, Small touchpad, Mediocre webcam

After streaming Hulu for 15 mintues, the 721 remained fairly cool, reaching 91 degrees Fahrenheit on the touchpad, and 92 and 95 degrees, respectively, between the G and H keys, and 95 degrees underneath. The only part of the machine that got...

Acer Aspire One 721-3574


For just a little more than the cost of an Atom-powered netbook, the Acer Aspire One 721-3574 ($429) sports a larger 11.6-inch display, a more comfortable keyboard, and a faster AMD Athlon II Neo processor paired with ATI graphics for HD video...

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,...

Netbook Review: Acer Aspire One AO721


As is often the case with products that seem to bridge gaps between existing product lines, the AO721's biggest weakness is that it doesn't quite know what it wants to be. There are manufacturers, after all, who market similarly sized 11.6-inch systems...

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,...

Outstanding Netbook


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...

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...

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