Review Acer Aspire One 725-C7Xkk Notebook


Refresh. Acer updates the Aspire One 725, fitting it with the new

Matte display; Very quiet, even under high load; Reasonably priced warranty extension available; Low heat generation; Acceptable battery life

Weak system performance; Low-contrast screen

Despite a very economical APU, battery life is not much better than that of the competition.

Very quiet; Wide opening angle; USB 3.0 port; Bluetooth 4.0 module

Reflective display; High temperatures developed; Combination port for microphone/headphones

Acer AO725-0884


While the AO725-0884 may not be the best-performing netbook in our lineup, it certainly is the most portable. If you want a portable computer that is lighter than most, look no further. The small form factor and sleek design won't disappoint you. But...

The AO725-0884 is small and lightweight, which provides outstanding portability

The battery life is on the short side

If portability is what you want, you'll get it with the AO725-0884.

A nice, mobile, cool netbook


Linux: I am running Fedora 18 (XFCE) on this netbook. The heaviest tax I've ut on the APU is streaming 720 videos for work - which it handles without any problem. For everything this netbook is and can do, I think it is fantastic. In terms of score, I...

Bios disables features


It would be a perfect netbook if manufactur's software was better.

It's fast, light, and runs longer on battery than most netbooks

AMD C60 processor has all the features a current desktop chips would. While slower to save battery, it does have many of the features removed from the alternative Atom chips. However Acer has disabled AMD-Virtualization in the BIOS with no means to enable

Acer AO725


A nice little unit. Full 1366x768 screen in a very portable package. Windows 8 stinks, so I am running Linux Mint 64 and am very happy with it. I wish the manufacturers would dump windows and save us the cost of a lousy operating system.

Good Value, Easy to Use, Lightweight, Performance
