Acer Aspire One Review: The Little Netbook That Can
Our 2 year old Acer Aspire One is light weight, inexpensive and easy to pack.
Just three of the many reasons why we really like our little Acer Aspire One netbook computer. We’ve been working with it now for over two years now and it’s only natural to bring it along with us no matter were we’re off to. One of the features that we enjoy while posting our blogs on the Acer is the ability to transfer photos from our camera right to the computer.
The memory card slot allows us not only to upload our pictures easily, but also to edit them right away.
There are USB slots on both sides as well as input jacks for both a mic and headset. An output video monitor is also an option, as well as a built in web camera.
Our Acer Aspire Netbook has never crashed and we’ve never had software issues. The keyboard and mouse on the other hand can sometimes be pretty annoying. As I sit and type this now, I have to move the cursor off the page so I’m able to type. If I leave it anywhere on the browser it will eventually select or ‘click’ what it is hovering over. As a result of this I’ve moved onto other screens or deleted things off the page that I still needed.
If you’re checking e-mails or catching up with your social media pages you’ll be fine. If you’re writing a term paper or report I would suggest sitting down to a more traditional desk top computer or regular laptop. The Acer is just way too fickle to tackle anything bigger than lightweight Internet surfing.
If we were to get another small laptop I would probably stick with the Acer line of netbook computers.
Even with its faults the Acer is still the perfect plug in and go computer for a fraction of the cost of other laptops or netbooks.
Do you have a netbook that you would recommend? Lets us know by leaving a comment below.
Have a wonderful day,
