    We have been using this netbook for just over a month now and we are very happy with our purchase. We had a Gateway before and it was good but it died on us so I did a tonne of research before we bought this one.

    This one had everything we wanted; HDMI, dual processor, full Windows 7 etc. We think it works very fast, especially compared to our old laptop which we thought was pretty fast. The size of this one is perfect too. I wasn’t keen on the 10.1 inch ones because I thought they were too small and our last one was a 15.6 inch which was a little too big to be portable.

    We love the HDMI output, we hook it up to our TV to watch stuff from Hulu and Netflix. I also like how it seems to auto-adjust when you plug in the HDMI cable, we always had to fiddle with the settings on our Gateway to get it to display correctly on our TV. All in all I am glad we went with this one.

    good little laptop, November 12, 2010

    this laptop is decent…the speed is could be better but what can you expect from a laptop at this price and this little…it is I warn you a little slow in processing a few things at once…if you have one internet explorer open and open another one, it takes a few seconds to load everything up…but this is coming from me a guy who custom builts his own desktop soo…but try it out..perfect for students..faster than most netbooks…

    PROs:
    – its faster than most netbooks at this price range.
    – battery seems to last ok, about 3-4 hrs on power saving mode.
    – not heavy at all
    – top of screen is mesh…no finger print identity stolen or shall i say not a finger print magnet
    – thats all i can think of at this moment

    CONs:
    – the key pad seems to be not a regular or triditional key pad but wider in length…if you are used to
    the normal key pads you will need to get use to this one beacause everything is spaced a little wider
    – it does tend to get hot with only one fan blowing out the hot air on the left hand side where the
    plug goes into. (major con; as it produces more heat there when charging and close to the cpu)
    – dont be freaked out if the resolutions for your games are smaller not abling you to play with comfort. so
    far i havent found a fix to this but the resolution changes into a traditional square like resolution,
    not wide enough to fit your screen. I’ve tried everything i can find online but no fix.
    – i dont know if you consider this a con but the screen and side of the screen scratches very easily.

    thats all i could think of right now as amazon send me so many emails just to review this product…hope this helps a little and good luck…ohh and i bought mine when it was selling at $424…that was about 3 weeks ago and it was the best deal i can find after much shopping online and on the web. Also looking at and researching the benchmark the many cpu for these netbooks this one had the best cpu for the price…64 bit processor i would say this is the best for the price…i dont mean to sound bigoted but if you are just an average user and havent owned or experience a fast comp, get this laptop…its comparable to my bros 2 years old vostro 200 desktop from dell…well thats it ill leave things here…good luck on your search

    This review is from: Acer AS1551-4650 11.6-Inch Notebook (Personal Computers)

    Bought the computer to use at school for a class on excel and a class on microsoft access. Been using it for over a week now and I’m satisfied with my purchase and would by no means take it back or request a refund. That said, I know that the item description gives a lot of the pros and not any cons so I’ll try to do my best to show where it could be stronger.

    Cons:
    The mouse “swirls” a little too often when I put some simple functions into excel. Could probably use to have the extra 2GB RAM slot filled. (But that’s fairly cheap and easy to do).
    (This should do the trick, Crucial CT25664BC1067 2GB 204-PIN PC3-8500 SODIMM DDR3 Memory Module)
    The Office 2010 suite was a little hard to install because of downloading issues that could have been avoided with the use of an optical drive (i.e. DVD-ROM)

    Pros:
    Okay so I lied, I’ve gotta add some pros to this sweet little machine because honestly its just as good as I could have hoped for if not better.
    The battery life is OUTSTANDING. I can be surfing/ doing homework on and off for an 8 hour day without the power cord anywhere near me. Works perfect because I can pull the computer off the charger in the morning and roam cord free all day.
    Super light weight. A benefit of losing the optical drive but its all give and take.

    Overall I’m really happy with the purchase and would recommend it to anyone, that is unless you’re doing heavy gaming or video processing. Great little guy for on the go basics and you can’t beat the price.

    UPDATE:
    I’ve had this computer for about a month now and I’m really impressed with its resilience. I haven’t dropped it or anything (knock on wood) but I’ve left it out in the car over-night in sub-zero weather (with minimal battery life left) on multiple occasions and have always been able to pull it right out of my bag, plug it in and go to work. Even after all this stress I’m still able to go a full day on a single charge (if I remember to bring it in and charge it at night).
    One month later… still VERY pleased with my purchase.
