In this review we will learn all the pros and cons of the Acer Aspire One, and see how it attractive for a buyer.
specifications Acer Aspire One:
Design and build
the design of the Acer Aspire One is very organic — smooth body with rounded edges and glossy surface, this laptop is very nice to hold in hands. From glossy plastic is made from the upper lid of the netbook, as well as the area around the LCD display. Sometimes in a brightly lit room frame around the screen starts to blikovat, distracting from the screen.
the Quality of the material is very good, the netbook seems to be quite durable and resistant to damage, the exception may be the glossy surface, on which, perhaps, is quite noticeable will look even small scratches. Plastic resists well when you try to compress it or to bend and cover the surface around the screen is made especially strong, which is very important to protect fragile LCD panel.
if You are a fan of upgrading notebooks, the Acer Aspire One is not so suitable for this model. The cover shot is pretty hard, and get access to the components like RAM or HDD is not easy. But this step can be justified in the case, if you plan to install Vista, which is very «greedy» in respect of RAM, or you can put a faster hard drive. Another fact for disappointment can be a slot, Mini-PCIe, in which you can put probably only SIM card for 3G connection, but if You can connect there anything else, then You obviously can be called very successful.
LED backlit display, the Acer Aspire One is very bright and the colors look natural and alive. This became possible through the use of a glossy screen, which, unfortunately, increases the reflection and causes glare. In a room with not very bright lighting conditions the screen is readable and contrast, but on the street or in a bright room it becomes difficult to read and uncomfortable to view.
the Angle is above the average. Horizontal viewing angle is very good, essentially, you can watch almost perpendicular to the screen and still see the true color. Vertical viewing angle is also good, but the limit of normal quality is /- 15 degrees up or down from the average position.
Keyboard and touchpad
the Keyboard as much as he could do the dimensions of the netbook. In General Aspire One — 9″ netbook in the housing 10″ model. A small disadvantage of this solution can be called a large border around the screen is plastic, but it is possible to make the most comfortable keyboard. She, of course, not full size as a conventional laptop, so to get used to it you will have to practice before this.
the keyboard Itself feels secure and does not bend, and the stagger. The special arrangement of the received button page up and page down. To scroll through long web pages, especially with mini-touch keys page up and page down keys allow for more accurate and comfortable, and most importantly quickly navigate through the page.
Design the touch pad is unique in comparison with other netbooks and laptops, because the buttons are not under the touchpad and left and right of him. The only other netbook with a similar touchpad is HP Mini-Note 2133. The format is a bit unusual, so initially there may be times when you’ll just pull the body under the bar and try to move then the touchpad, but all this will pass with time. The surface is easily reacts to touch, even at low pressure. If You can get used to the format buttons of the touchpad, the touchpad looks good.
of Course, with Intel Atom processor, this netbook will not show a record speeds, but for everyday use, especially in the Internet its power will be enough. Whether working with text or edited
repair the hard drive should be done when the system often falls(possibly a bad sector) or when the drive is not recognized in the BIOS. In any case, these repairs are best left to the professionals.
