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.

Review Acer Aspire One 725 Notebook


One more time. The Acer Aspire One netbook series has a new entry

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

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

The relatively high case temperatures during high processing loads. This is actually uncommon for netbooks.

Acer Aspire One 725 — A Decent Netbook, But Only Just


Fairly priced for the hardware and software, but lacks in performance and battery backup.

Small and lightweight; Great build quality; 11.6" screen with 1366x768 pixels; Well-priced; Good software bundle.

Poor performance; Cramped keyboard with small keys; Mouse buttons a little hard to press; Average battery backup; Can't play 1080p movies.

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...

Good Quality for Buck


After dropping an SSD and crunchbang linux followed by a few SSD tweaks like moving /tmp and ~/.cache to RAM and using a non-journalized ext2 filesystem to reduce writes to disk, this thing flies. Boot to desktop is about 10 seconds. Even though it's...

Lightweight Small Good resolution Solid Video Performance First netbook I've had that could run Windows 7 Low heat Runs circles around Atom based netbooks I've owned.

Didnt come with SSD Only 2GB of RAM, I had installed 4GB before I even booted first time.
