Acer Aspire One AOD250 impressions: Android gone bad

“We admit, we were pretty stoked when we first saw the Acer Aspire One AOD250 running Android in dual-boot mode. What could possibly be bad about it? Fast start-up, Google apps… other good things that aren’t coming to mind at the moment… what could go wrong? Turns out, just about everything. See, the Aspire One […]

Acer Aspire One D260 review

“Weighing just 2.6 pounds and measuring 10.2 x 7.3 x 0.9 inches, the lithe D260 feels feather-light. Unlike Acer’s larger notebooks, the branding on the D260 is much more overt: the upper left-hand corner has Acer’s logo in dark gray, and “Aspire One” is emblazoned in chrome across the middle. The light matte gray finish […]

Acer Aspire One 521 and 721 review

Joanna Stern at Engadget has run the new AMD powered Acer Aspire One 521 through its paces and it is almost everything we hoped it could be. The 1.7GHz AMD cpu and ATI Radeon HD 4225 gpu combination packs a punch that knocks out any comparable netbooks with Atom processors. Here are the benchmark results […]

About the Acer Aspire One A110

Acer Ferrari One – 11.6in Netbook Review

Most unusual, though, is support for ATI’s XGP technology. XGP, for those who don’t know or recall, was announced last year. On paper it’s a very cool technology, enabling the use of external graphics solutions to be connected via the propriety port. Since it uses its own port, XGP isn’t limited by the bandwidth of […]

Acer Aspire One 751 Review

“Acer Aspire One 751 is intended toward users that find standard netbook resolution insufficient, but also like better keyboard, that allows comfortable typing. If you recognized yourself in previous sentence, than Acer Aspire One 751 can offer a lot. On the other hand, this model is not perfect and has few minor problems, but let’s […]

Acer Aspire One 531 review

The original Acer Aspire One has proved one of the best selling netbooks, we hear, helped along by its competitive price circa-£200. That first model had a 9in screen and ran a friendly graphical Linux operating system; now we find Acer has kept the bankable Aspire One name and followed the crowd with a 10in […]

Acer Aspire One AO751h reviewed

When we reviewed the latest 10-inch Aspire One, we complained about the tiny touchpad. With the A0751h’s slightly wider footprint, however, comes a wider touchpad (2.5 x 1.6 inches), which was a pleasant improvement over the AOD250’s 2.0 x 1.5-inch pad. It’s still fairly short, though, especially compared to the NB205’s (3.1 x 1.6 inches) […]

Acer Aspire One D250

Review Acer made a significant impact on the netbook market last year with its hugely popular Aspire One A110. It recently released a selection of new netbooks in its Aspire One range, and the D250 we have here is bizarrely similar to the D150, which was only launched a couple of months ago The D250 […]

Acer Aspire One 751 11.6in notebook-not-netbook

The new Acer Aspire One 751 has a screen that measures 11.6in on the diagonal with a resolution of 1366 x 768 and that’s mighty big for a netbook. As it happens, we were told a few months back that Intel has strict rules about the sale of Atom N-series processors to avoid cannibalising the […]
