Acer Aspire One Happy 2

 

The Acer Aspire One Happy 2 only has a 3-cell battery as standard, which makes it a less than ideal travel companion

While the Acer offer reasonable performance, its price and limited battery life mean you’ll get more bangs for your buck elsewhere.

Acer Aspire One Happy 2 N57DQ

 

Great size and weight, took only few minutes to set up and was very simple to do so just had to follow the on screen prompts. Doesn't slow much when downloading a big file.

Can be a little slow of you try and do to many things at once. Can get a little bit hot when playing on the games.

acer ASPIRE one happy

 

Its been one year when i bought my happy one, I needed something small and compact to travel with. I didnt have much time to do the research or shopping around when i came across this netbook. Its my first netbook and i found it bit hard to get use to...

very light and compact compare to the laptop. it runs well in all kinds of environment. I use photoshop and it runs fine, when i dont work with huge size graphics.

only 1G memory but i just learned how to upgrade it. hoping to run more graphics and movie editing software. i dont really like the pink colour, lucky i am a female.
