Excellent NetBook Performs Better Than Expected

  • Jun 1, 2010
Rating:
+5
I got the Acer Netbook primarily so I wouldn't have to carry around my large laptop when all I needed to do was check my email or browse the Internet. I didn't really expect much considering the size and price of the Netbook. However, my expectations have been exceeded. Instead of a long review, I will just list my thoughts about the Pros and Cons for you.

Pros
-Price is reasonable
-Unit is small enough to carry anywhere comfortably
-Keyboard is decent size, not hard to use
-Built-In wireless makes connecting at Hot Spots a cinch
-Large Hard Drive to hold plenty of data
-USB port so you can use a thumb-drive for storage as well
-USB port can also be used for wireless device such as AT&T Wireless Connect
-If computer is ever lost or stolen, you are out only a few hundred instead of several hundred to thousands


Cons
- Battery life is not very long
- Keyboard is smaller than average
- Screen is a lot smaller than you may be used to
- Not meant to be powerful so don't expect to run Photoshop or Huge games smoothly!
- Lifespan probably won't be as long as a normal computer

These are my observations after using the unit now for quite a few months.
I found the unit to be more than I expected, thus I am a happy customer.
However, if you are expecting a powerful little laptop that does everything well, I'd suggest looking elsewhere...
