Review of Acer Aspire One A110


Netbooks seem to be the most fashionable gadget to have around. It started out with being as simple as a netbook can get and now, there's a whole different package with multi-features and different designs to pick from. Meanwhile, the …

On the whole, Acer as the brand has rarely been labeled as a ‘let-down’. That said, Acer Aspire One A110 is a basic netbook with basic features and the keyboard is great to be used so go for it if you don't mind a simple gadget on hand.

Refurbished Acer Aspire One AOA 110-1722 Netbook


Most netbooks are less expensive than larger laptop computers, but many of us may still be deterred by the price of certain desirable netbooks. There are a fair number of ...

Great value for your money ; Nice keyboard with friendly layout ; Linpus Linux is remarkably fast, even with 512MB of RAM ; LED-backlit display

Glossy surface attracts lots of fingerprints, especially on palm rest ; Trackpad and button design is odd ; Less than desirable specs, including 3-cell battery, 8GB storage, 512MB RAM ; Performance not quite as good as competitors ; Provided protective...

That said, I was quite pleased to see that the contents of the box were well protected with soft foam inserts rather than with the standard Styrofoam that you find everywhere else. Since you don’t get any formed Styrofoam, however, the contents of the...

Acer Aspire One AOA110-1295 Notebook


The OS shell is both functional and lame. This netbook is very suitable for travel and easily running common apps, such as web, email, Open Office, some games and IM. Die-hard linux fans would probably override the native linpus linux with gnome or...

Fast startup, >30 seconds,true 8G SSD drive, not a hybrid ssd/sd-ram,OS + apps take only 3.5G,expand user storage space w/sd-ram card,easy wi-fi connect, webcam OK, keyboard OK, not too cram

Per Acer, does *not* accept sdhc cards,battery life >3.5 hours w/dim screen,no network browsing,OS shell does not accept new apps, no desktop icons,system RAM upgrades must be done by Acer.

Great net gadget


Screen is just small enough that the new Facebook profiles shift down instead of being 2 columns, making you have to scroll past the left column to see content. I still think I like it better than the other brand Linux netbook I bought my daughter.

Small, easy to use, very customizable if you know how to tweak - based on Fedora Linux. Has external ports for anything you might want to do

Battery life, somewhat weaker wireless than a good full sized notebook. Processor just slow enough that full screen doesn't quite play smoothly

Flimsy LCD, Worse Service


My Acer LCD panel broke while I had it as carry on luggage. It never left my sight and the case was pristine. Acer wanted to charge me $199 to repair it. They said it could have been the air pressure or turbulence on the plane, and they were not...

Thewtex, I think I love you


I have had this notebook since August 2008. In October I put a bios and hdd password on the little bugger - I've been trying to get back into my machine ever since - when I finally found the review written by 'thewtex' I managed to get my computer back...

Although I set the passwords myself, they did not work. Finally I managed to get into the BIOS and clear both the BIOS and HDD passwords...will not be setting them again...Acer tech support is the pits

Rock Solid


Small, Stylish, Linux = great. In fact I have stopped using my desktop and just use it most of the time

Installed Ubuntu Netbook Remix and it just flies. Keyboard just feels right. Screen is nice and crisp. Speakers work good enough. It is great to take to conferences. It gets a lot of looks

No bluetooth. Linpus Linux by default. Under Ubuntu and Cheese, taking pictures is fine, but recording video does not work
