Netbooks are so slow, but remember when they were also small and cheap?

I miss those days.

i have had one of these for 2 years. they are slow and many have told me that they are also hard to work with (small keyboard and mouse pad). but this is a very light laptop and the battery lasts much longer than regular notebooks. its ideal for trips when you use it only to check emails or browse the web.

@insomnotek1: i do not think so, notice they do not even have a CD player, so if you need to install something you need to do it online or use a flash/external hard drive.

It's going on two years and I'm still very happy with my Acer netbook. It's not blazingly fast but it's great for travelling and has survived several drops by airport security. It's been my main computer for months at a time while I've been on the road and it hasn't disappointed.

I actually like netbooks, I am using one now. I would love to replace this one but the price is just a little too high for me to pull the trigger. May check out this website anyway and see what they have to offer.

my bad , it does seem to have an HDMI port, mine is an older version of this which does not.

I have the AO522, which has nearly the same specs but is the 10" screen version. I can say it's an enjoyable device. Has that nice cross-section of features in that it's a netbook with long battery life, has a high resolution for its screen size, and has a gaming-capable graphics chip. It can just barely handle some Starcraft II for instance.

If you're going for Linux, I can say that it works pretty well, except the AMD/ATI proprietary drivers are conflictilicious and will kill suspend/hibernate functionality in recent kernels. Other minor problems have Google-able, documented solutions.

I've had my Acer going on 3 years, paid the same price on a Woot off. It's a trusty little thing survived several drops,tough handling from TSA agents and small children.I plug in a keyboard and mouse at home.

I'm writing this on the Acer Aspire netbook that I wooted 2.5 years ago. It's had plenty of use, and I've been very happy with it.

My only problem is that the newfangled, fancified woot 4.0 just doesn't fit on it anymore!!! (Are you listening, woot developers?)

How come Secondipity doesn't include screen RESOLUTION in their product descriptions?

vote-for1vote-against

What is the screen resolution? If not at least 1366 by 768, it's useless in my opinion. I looked but could not find the resolution using Google search.

Oops, jcharpentier beat me to it.

There was a class action on this type of Acer Netbook that I am part of, check here.

I love my Acer Aspire. I don't have the One, but in all my experiences Acer makes reliable machines.

vote-for3vote-against

@richretzlaff: The screen resolution is 1366 x 768.

Does a battery come with it? How many cells?

@guraboy: I'm curious... what the hell are you doing that airport security would have any reason to handle your computer?

vote-for2vote-against

@fixitnate: they like to handle all of your junk, why not your computer?

vote-for1vote-against

@fixitnat: TSA agents need to handle laptops for the same reason they need to throw away your bottles of water and perfectly harmless lotion.

@kovo: Hah! Kovo beat me to that one. :)

@kerowyn: In years of flying with a laptop, not one time has anyone but me touched my laptop

One can only presume that his laptop wouldn't be dropped if he wouldn't try to smuggle cocaine in it.

I have this exact netbook model. Came here to say it's a great deal for the price. The 1366x768 resolution and 11.6" screen make it surprisingly usable. I upgraded to 4 GB of RAM and use mine to play DJ sets. It can also play 720p video and, coupled with the HDMI output, it is a very flexible portable media device. I only crave a higher clock speed, though the lower-clocked dual core is very nice for multitasking.

@fixitnate: Just recently flew to NY and TSA insisted on wiping down my laptop in search of gun powder. They never explained why it was necessary.

3+ good years on my 8.9" netbook. I believe these 11.6" models have full-sized keyboards and pretty normal screen rez [at least 1024x768]. HDMI is a huge plus.

So, this is only like $20 or $30 more than a tablet or touchpad?
Def a deal!
