    Acer Aspire One Netbook


    (Page 1 of 4 )

    Smart phones are great for quick computing and web browsing on the go, but sometimes you need the power of a full-fledged computer. That's where laptops come in, but most of those are a little too big and expensive to take everywhere easily. And that is where ultra-portable PCs, also known as netbooks, come in. In this article we'll review one of the first and still most popular ones on the market, the Acer Aspire One.

    Introduction

    Surely, there isn't a person alive who wouldn't want an incredibly affordable, efficient and compact laptop. Unfortunately, even laptops on the cheaper end of the spectrum can retail for around $600, thus squashing the laptop dreams for many of us trying to budget and save during this worldwide financial crisis. There's no reason to feel too discouraged, however; there are other options that are much more affordable, but a little on the smaller side ...

    Netbooks, which are small to medium sized, light-weight, low-cost and energy efficient laptops, are the next best thing for those of us looking for something a little more affordable and in line with our needs. Let's be honest, a majority of folks don't have a complete handle of what their expensive laptops are capable of doing even after months of use. Netbooks are generally optimized for Internet-based services, such as web browsing and e-mailing, so if you're in the market for something simple to take along on coffee runs or while out of town, then netbooks are for you.

    Acer's Aspire One, though being called a laptop, is essentially an incredibly affordable and reliable netbook that is receiving some rave reviews from users fortunate enough to have already snagged one. With recent entries fromAsus, MSI, Sylvaniaand models fromDellandLenovoon the way, the Netbook field is becoming increasingly crowded, though Acer's Aspire One is still easily the best option at under $400- $379 to be exact.

    None of this is to say that the Aspire One is perfect, though it does have excellent features and a great design at its price range. Some of the computer's pitfalls include a mere 512 MB of RAM, which limits its performance greatly, and a very unappealing battery life of only two hours, which is very disappointing for such a mobile machine. Like all things in life, you must take the good with the bad, so let's delve into theAspire Oneand find out exactly how much bang for your buck itreallyprovides.
