Acer Aspire One (XP-Based)


Acer's first Aspire One mini-notebook was a Linux-based model that impressed us despite its modest components. Now the Windows XP Home version of Aspire One is here, packed with a larger hard drive and more RAM. Though it isn't superswift, the latest...

Spacious keyboard for its size ; Great value price

Poor battery life ; Maddening mouse pad buttons

Considering its bargain-basement price, the Aspire One is a steal. That is, until you realize you need the six-cell battery.

Wonderful, functional product for someone really ON THE GO who just needs to 'get the job done'.

Extremely portable, 5 hour battery life, really nice and easy to work with keyboard, hooking up to wireless NEVER a problem and internet performs well even with low connection, has a battery saving shut-down/sleep mode I love, really great screen...

That you ever have to charge a battery all. Not sure if its a weakness, but the lack of any CD drive

I bought this just because it was a decent deal at first place. After using for almost 3 month it actually becomes my main laptop and mobile reader. It's much lighter than my 15-inch toshiba lappy, around 2.2lbs with 3-cell battery and about 2.8lbs...

Mobile without noticeable compromising

Original 3-cell battery lasts only 2 hours

This 2lb 8.9" laptop is fabulous. the screen is good sized and the LCD brightness quality is adjustable from dim to bright. There's a plentiful 3 USB ports, VGA out, mic in and audio out. This netbook comes with a webcam and mic so you really won't...

this is a fabulous little netbook

3-cell battery life is weak, lasting about 2.5 to 3hrs. not sure what could be draining the battery so much for such a small laptop. maybe the hard drive
