Purchased this for our 11 year old daughter and it is perfect for her needs. The keyboard is suited for her small fingers and it is light enough for her to easily carry up and down the stairs.

Overall, I am extremely pleased with this netbook. It's light, small and speedy. It does its job. I installed Chrome as my browser and it's much faster than explorer.

This netbook exceeded my expectations in almost all ways. It is fast and versatile. My only complaint is the pre-installed software. Windows Starter is a lite version of Windows Home. It is missing a lot of the features of Windows Home Edition. And it gives you to option to buy the full version but you have to put out more money to do so. I got the Bubbles design on my netbook and it is really cute!! I call her Baby Lappy! I feel anyone who is even thinking about getting a Kindle or Nook should look real hard at a decent netbook. They have way more to offer and are in about the same price range. And with the HDMI hookup you can watch anything you like from any online rental company and see it on you TV!!

This netbook is amazing before I got this netbook I had read many reviews that said it was fast and some that said it was slow so I really didn't know what to expect. I love this netbook overall it is so amazing and fast and has a long enough battery life to meet all of my needs. The only thing is the keys are a little on the small side but still usable. Overall I would definetly give this a five star rating and would reccommend this to a family member a friend or just someone on the street the is an amazing netbook and if you are looking for one for a cheap price this is the one to get!

  • A. Netbooks don't have CD drives. You can buy one separately and then attach it to the netbook by USB cable. I suggest Apricorn, which I use with my Acer -- BUT BUT BUT Windows 7 negates a lot of existing hardware. So you might have to go to MS Answer forums and ask what DVD Writer (the thing you really want) goes with Windows 7 Starter.

  • A. No, it does not. External drives are cheap ($50-70), but make sure you WANT one - if you can copy the content onto a Flash drive using a real laptop or desktop, that's even cheaper, and more convenient - and make sure you get one that's powered from the USB port, and doesn't require a wall plug.

  • A. No, and no netbook will. You can purchase an external one that connects to the netbook via USB for fairly cheap though.

  • A. There isn't a built in drive, but you can add an external dvd player/recorder using a USB connection. I've seen them on sale for as low as $30 and up to almost $100 depending on manufacturer and seller.

  • A. Not quite a full keyboard. But it's comfortable. Also, if you'll type in a lot of numbers, get a dedicated keypad. I think Walmart sells them. Get also a PS/2 to USB adaptor, as the Aspire doesn't have PS/2 connections, but the numeric keypads are usually PS/2 (at least, mine is).

  • A. I don't know :D The actual key tops are larger than the key tops on my 14-inch Lenovo, but there's not much space between the keys. If you have your hands in the home position, it's easier to type, but your hands can get out of the home position more easily on this keyboard. I hope that helps!

  • A. Yes and no. If you mean "full size" as in like the standard keyboard used with desktop computers, then no. However, most netbooks and laptops don't. The only difference is that it does not have the Numpad -- the numbers to the right on standard keyboards. Besides that, it's all there. I do a lot of word processing on this netbook with ease, even though the 10" sounds small it is very comfortable. Here is a photo of the keyboard if that helps.

  • A. Yes, you can. Get the SD card made by SanDisk, 32GB. You can get bigger sizes, but I don't recommend it. You can also get a microSD card of the same GB, but be sure to also get the SD adaptor. A microSD card says 'micro' on it, and is very small, about the size of a pinkie fingernail. I prefer SD. With the Acer, when you insert the card, do it slowly and gently. It will only go in one way (curved side-in). If you are having trouble inserting it, try inserting it so you can see the gold lines going in (I'm not sure if your model works as mine does.) If you're doing it right, you will need to do a little push at the end, and it clicks into place. It will seem to be hard to get out. Gently rock it from side to side as you slowly and gently try to remove it. Pretend it's a flower petal, that kind of gentleness. I love those cards in my Acer Aspire One. I get two of those slots, but your model apparently has one. (My Acer was almost the same model, but cost me $350 at Walmart in 2008, and had only 80GB, and was single-core, but had two SD slots.)
