i bought this for my mom back in may 2009 because all she needed was something small and light to watch her video news on youtube. this little acer fits the bill. though it only has an atom processor, it does the job that she needed. the battery last 7 hrs streaming videos, so it would easily do the 9 hrs doing other stuff. the fan, though, has started making slight grinding noise. i hope it's just a simple replacement.
Good things in small packages5/26/2010
Love, love, love my "Barbie computer" -- I'm disabled, and bought this for days when I can't get out of bed to reach my desktop model. It suits the purpose admirably. It also fits easily into a hotel room/cruise ship cabin safe.
computer failed 11 weeks after purchase with very little use. i have to send it in for repair before warranty expires. BEWARE!
Sleek & Compact & Sharp =100% Beauty5/11/2009
I couldn't be Happier with my New 10.1" Acer Netbook!!! It's light & fits easily into my zippered portfolio, as well as any number of purses I use!! While it does not have a cd/dvd drive, it does provide plenty of USB ports for all my gizmos when I do presentations on the fly. The Keyboard is also Excellent!! Since it is not totally flat one can type easily without the fear of your fingers sliding onto another key. The Battery lasts super long-I got the 6 cell. I strongly recommend it!!
love this computer!5/10/2009
this was my first purchase from buy.com. the computer arrived much faster than I expected and I love it. I am not into technology, but his computer is very easy to use. i am sure I still have a lot of features to learn about. I bought it to travel with, and just returned from a conference where everyone wanted it. Lightweight, good keyboard. I am now working on finding the right bag for it. I highly recommend it.
I absolutely love this device. My only complaint is that I was unable to purchase one with Linux preinstalled. The keyboard is nearly full sized and is very usable. I am currently developing python with my Aspire 1 to give some example of how usable it really is
My research paid off and I'm very happy with this5/4/2009
I was looking for a portable machine for email and some web surfing and after lots of research, decided this was a good machine for my needs and budget. Battery life is as specified and I was also pleased with the software included. I have had no performance issues with the device. I tried the additional software included such as Carbonite and McAfee and am very pleased with both as well. In my opinion, Acer spent some time thinking about the end user and coming up with useful hardware and software. You could give this machine to someone who lacks technical skills and they could use it very successfully.
Perfect traveling machine.4/15/2009
My mother has the 8.9" Acer but I needed the ability to put up to 2G of RAM in so I bought the 10.1". I love this machine. It is very easy to use and much lighter then my behemoth work laptop. For those who are not sure about the color (it does not photograph accurately) it is a nice deep red but not as dark as a burgundy. It is definitely not candle apple red if that is what you are after (I wasn't).
Much more powerful than I expected4/12/2009
The hd size of 160gb and 1ghz cpu with an extremely cool shell and a very high quality screen makes for an extremely pleasant user experience. There are two things to get used to with a small computer - although 10.1 inches makes for a pretty decent small screen - first, because the keyboard area is necessarily small (which is great for working in small areas) you need to get used to not inadvertently touching the touchpad and moving the cursor to another part of the page. Second is getting used to a keyboard that requires you to change your hand positions to touch type. Video/Hulu/movie files all present beautifully.
March 2009. This is my first laptop and I really like it. Good size, lightweight, love the color (Ruby Red). Good size keyboard and screen is a bit bigger than the 8.9". Acer was recommended tome by several other owners and so far I am very satiafied with it.
I love this machine!!!4/6/2009
Wow! My boyfriend loaded Windows 7 on this machine and it is running with no problems whatsoever. It is so fast and light I can carry it with me in my purse and I almost forget it is there. I use it for all my school work and skypeing with my friends (gotta love the webcam). The only thing I could complain about is that there is no PCMCIA slot to use with Clearwire but they should have a usb card like Verizon so it's really not the end of the world. Thanks.
Acer 10.1" Netbook is Great4/5/2009
This is approximately my 20th laptop computer. I purchased the 8.9" Acer a month ago, and wanted to upgrade the memory to 2gb and the harddrive to a 7200 rpm unit and found it was almost a total teardown to do so. This unit is built right and you can bump the memory to 2GB (all supported in OS) by opening a panel on the bottom of the computer. Hard drive also can be replaced by opening up another panel. This is probably the best laptop I have ever owned. Coming from a Toshiba and Dell background, I am thoroughly impressed with this unit. Only complaint I have is the 1024x600 resolution since most websites are based on 1024x768 or higher. When they get the next one at 1200x800, these will be perfect. I develop software for a living, and this one has plenty of power to run Visual Studio and the various database engines. I love the Ruby Red color and the larger layout keyboard on this new model. The quality and feel of the keyboard is fantastic. I work in several offices, and the WIFI connects perfectly in every location on Wireless G. You won't go wrong with this machine if you are looking for a compact laptop that is close to being fully functional as a desktop. Why lug around 15 lbs when this only weights 3 lbs?
Very Good Value4/4/2009
I was impressed with how fast XP ran on this netbook. The battery sticks out a bit but the over all size, weight, and shape are great.
We purchased this unit for my wife, who was constantly borrowing my laptop "for a couple of minutes." We looked at several competitors and chose the Aspire based on the specifications, features, and overall value. I must say that it has exceeded our expectations. After removing the contents from the packaging, it took about eight minutes to customize the computer with Firefox and add files from the other laptop, using a flash drive. The keyboard on this unit is much more forgiving than those on the 8.9" units she tried. The size and weight, along with the long battery life will enable my wife to take the computer with her around town and on vacation. Buy.com has come through again with another smooth transaction and I highly recommend them.
