An Awesome Little Laptop

Customer review by Cheerbabe

I was looking for a laptop that would suit my age and needs. Netbooks suited both perfectly, when I purchused mine I found it to be very helpful. Though it has a very small built in mouse it came with a regular computer mouse which was very helpful. I am very happy with my choice and setup took less than 5 minutes, I recomend it for people who are always on the go and need a light laptop because it only wieghs 2 lbs. it's also great for kids. It has a built in web cam which I have yet to try but I am sure it will work as well as the computer.

The Little Netbook That Could

It's true that good things come in small packages. And this little baby is no exception. If you're tired of lugging your regular size laptop around, here is your answer. You can get the same internet on here that you can get on a regular laptop and have a lot less to pack. It's also good for light resource games, but don't expect to play games which are graphic intensive because you won't be able to play them. And if you're a movie buff. this is also good since you can also watch movies on here with no lag or slowdown. Copy all of you DVD movies using DVD copy software to your big home computer, then buy a few USB sticks and copy the files from computer to netbook and you're set. I just watched a hour and a half movie on the Acer and still have 30 minutes of battery left from the standard 3 cell battery. Buy a 6 cell battery and you might be able to watch two or more movies. If you're looking for some light and easy internet device that can also be used to do a paper or two or are a casual gamer, buy this at once. You'll be glad you did.

I bought this computer mainly because we live in a rural area with no cell phone reception so my black berry wouldnt work. I wanted something to keep next to my bed that way if my husband came on line( he's over in Iraq) I'd be able to talk to him. I love this laptop. It does everything I want it to do. Allowes me to access facebook, email and my messengers without any problems. Its worth the money in my opinion.

  • A. Thank you for your question. No, unfortunately this system does not come with a DVD ROM drive. You will not be able to play DVDs on this machine at all. There are external optical drives (DVD or Blu-Ray drives) available that attach to the system via USB cables.

  • A. Buy an external disc drive. You will want to look for an USB external disc drive that can read DVDs or Blu-Ray discs since so much now comes on DVDs instead of CDs.

  • A. Netbooks are built to be thin and light. They do not have an internal optical drive. If you need to read/write CDs or DVDs you need to purchase an external optical drive which plugs into any 1 of the 3 USB 2.0 ports. Walmart.com has these. The netbook does have 3 USB 2.0 ports and a media card reader. These let you use thumbdrives and media cards to copy files, pictures, music, etc to the netbook harddrive without an optical drive.

  • A. It is true that Window XP ccome preinstalled but its not the trial version. I've do not know of any computer that comes with a trial offer for the operating system, If it did, I'd be going for the free options from lynix or others that do offer it for free. but you do want to be careful of the microsoft tricks they try to pull, you do get a free trial version of microsoft office student version, but I didn't even bother to us it, I use the Sun Microsytems "open office" for free and its better the Microsoft.

  • A. Thank you for your question. This unit does not come with recovery disks. You will need to create your own disks. In order to create restore disks, you will need to use either an external optical drive, or an optical drive shared over a network to the netbook. If you are not able to create them via those methods, you should call technical support within 30 days of purchase to obtain recovery media. Additionally, every Acer computer comes with a recovery partition that allows you to restore your computer without the need of disks, by pressing a key combination at start up and completing the resulting menus.

  • A. To clarify some of the questions and answers given, I do not know about previous versions of this netbook (not laptop or notebook), but the acer aspire one you can purchase now, is loaded with windows 7 starter, not xp. It is genrally thought that windows 7 is an energy hog, but with the specially designed intel atom proccesssor ( designed for netbooks), and the fact that there is no cd/dvd drive the battery (now it comes with a 6-cell battery) will last 6 hours is you are using wi-fi and 7.5 - 8 hous if you turn the wi-fi off (Fn+F2), and are playing games and such. There is a way both to backup your files and to make a recovery "disk", you can utilize a sd card or a usb flash drive ( I use a 2gb sd card just for weekly file backups). This netbook is perfect for someone who wants to surf the net using wi-fi or a hotspot. It does not have a built-in modem(for use with a phone line), but if you do not have a home wireless network or access to a hot spot, it does have both an internal lan and an ethernet port to hook up to a broadband/dsl isp. This computer does have a vga port to hook it up to a tv or a projector that utilize this port (the vga cable is not provided). The stereo speakers are fine for using as a music player,provided you don't mind the tinny sound (no bass at all from these speakers). I have not hooked my netbook up to external speakers, and although I'm sure there will be some improvement, almost no laptop/netbook computer has a sound that will rival an ipod or home stereo system. The 1mb ram is what the computer uses to proccess information, as a rule of thumb, the more ram the faster the computer will run. I have found with most applications, the combination of the proccessor and 1mg ram make this run with the speed of my 3mb laptop. The keyboard is almost full size,( but without a dedicated number pad, only the large 17.3" laptops have those) All in all it is a great computer to have, both as a second or third family computer, or even as a primary family computer, If you don't require the use of a dvd drive. Yes you can purchase an external dvd drive, for this netbook for approx $60.00, but there are cheaper laptops available with more memory, a bigger screen, bigger hard drive, and a cd/dvd drive for approx $400.

  • A. The Acer netbook comes with restore files partitioned on the hard drive. So you can restore your netbook to factory settings right from the hard drive. However if your hard drive gets corrupted with a virus it is possible it will also corrupt the restore files. When you first boot up your netbook it will prompt you to create restore disks. It is recommended that you do this but you will need an external optical drive to do this since a netbook does not have an internal optical drive.
