Review Acer Aspire One 531 Netbook

 

Heir to the Throne? Acer already landed a direct hit with the fir ...

Attractive but subtle design ; Very slim case weighing just 1220 grams ; Good workmanship ; Multi-touch touchpad ; Bright display with good illumination ; Low system noise in office use ; Good sound production ; Excellent battery life

Small numeric keys ; Reflective display is problematic in use outdoors ; High heat emissions possible under load

The Acer Aspire One series is just like the Asus Eee PCs ? dozens of models are currently flooding the market and how they are differentiated is in part unclear

Acer's Aspire One 531 keeps the netbook ticking over nicely

Long battery life ; large keyboard ; build quality

Colours look washed out, Android is unnecessary

Expert review by:

Acer Aspire One 531 notebook review

 

Acer has impressed on several occasions with its cut-priced netbooks, but its Aspire One lags behind rivals when it comes to quality and usability. The Aspire One 531 looks set to change this, with a highly attractive design, decent mobility and good...

Thin and neat design, build quality, bright screen

Keyboard could be larger, not revolutionary, average battery life

A high-quality and stylish netbook. Battery life could be better, but it’s still highly recommended

Acer's latest is an austere looking netbook – but is there more to the 531 than meets the eye?

Functional rather than fun, but one of the best netbooks available for the price

Acer Aspire One 531 review

 

The original Acer Aspire One has proved one of the best selling netbooks, we hear, helped along by its competitive price circa-£200. That first model had a 9in screen and ran a friendly graphical Linux operating system; now we find Acer has kept the...

Unlike the original Aspire One, there’s less to get excited about by this me-too Windows netbook. But while it offers the usual roster of netbook facilities, there is the just-higher than average netbook speed performance, and the distinction of two...

i like everything about it except the battery, and i wish theres more memory

i like the screen and the simple layout of the keyboard, but i hope there would be a bigger scree like 10.50 inch

i wish the batter has more capacity and more memory

Small, efficient, usefull

Smaller screen and not much RAM

Consumer review by:

not as advertised

 

Don't get caught up in this scam. Obviously these were not moving on the open market and so now they are offering them to get people to sign 2 year contracts and your still paying too much for the unit. Bogus deal!

There is nothing I like about this product

Price is not 49.99 they are selling 2 year contracts and paying 49.99 and a monthly fee. This computer is the slowest version out there and clunky. The worst deal you could buy

Consumer review by:

Great little computer is a mini size.

 

I got this for my wife as a replacement for the one she left behind with family in Russia. I was very impressed with the screen clarity. I was able to read it from a good distance and had no need to squint. The only drawback was a drive to load...

Great Traveler

 

This is a great little product and a wonderful traveler. Easy to set up and configure, a wonderful replacement for your desktop on the road. Add a USB CD/DVD burner, a wireless mouse (not too thrilled with the pad - just me) and you're ready to go. One...

battery life, bright screen, easy to use, Memory, size & weight, value for money
