Unique Aspire One Interface

One of the neatest features of the Aspire One is the unique operating system which is created on Linux Linplus. This simple-to-use system is based on clear icons, similar to a mobile phone system, which are launched by simply clicking on them, which makes it intuitive to use and simple to master.

Easy to Use Easy to Use
One of the key aspects to any Netbook is the keyboard size, too small and you can’t use it properly, too big and the whole system needs to be made bigger. Acer has managed to get a 95% keyboard into its 8.9 inch netbook, one of the largest for the size, making this netbook a pleasure to type on. 

Connectivity Connectivity
Connectivity is vital with a netbook, both to the internet and to other devises. For strong internet connectivity Acer has both wired and wireless internet connectivity options. To connect to other devises there are 3 USB ports as well as VGA output and sharing data between devises is easy with the built in multicard reader.

Verified Purchase
I ordered one of these for my mum's birthday, going for the Linux version over Windows XP purely for the difference in price (I can always install XP later, a fairly simple task for me). The machine was booted up and on the internet within about 3 minutes, which is the fastest out of the box set up I've ever seen.

As far as software goes, it has almost everything you need for web browsing, msn, email, documents etc, and the interface is easy to use. I would say that it needs Skype and a different media player installed (the pre loaded one can't play DivX encoded video). This is where the choice of operating system is important - if you are NOT technically minded, familiar with Linux, or don't have someone who can install new stuff for you, GET THE XP VERSION. Installing new software on the Linpus Linux is a pain, generally requiring use of the command line, and I would say that the version installed by Acer is aimed at people who don't want to do much more than what the present applications cater for.

The hardware is lightweight but feels fairly sturdy, and looks really nice too. The keyboard is fine for every day use, but the trackpad may take a little getting used to as the buttons are situated at either side rather than underneath. The screen is crisp and clear, no dead pixels, and the VGA output still looks decent on my 32" TV. The built in camera and mic work great (tested with Skype), and the speaker sound quality is fine for general use although a little lacking in bass (remember, it's a netbook!!). My only real gripe would be battery life - the 3 cell battery provided only lasts for 2-2.5 hours, but it also charges up pretty quickly.

Overall I'd say its a great little machine, very cute and dinky looking, incredibly light weigh, easy to use and definitely suited to its purpose.

I decided I wanted a smaller lighter laptop than the one I had already and was debating whether to go for Linux version or XP which I was more familiar with.
Decided to take a chance and have been well impressed with the simplicity of Linux interface. Very easy to configure wireless network and email accounts which were my biggest concern! It comes fully loaded with all the basic applications - I'm a new convert to OpenOffice after using it on the Acer Aspire One. Its fab, does everything I need it for and even fits in my handbag! A great peace of kit - Would highly recommend!

I bought this netbook on Thursday 25th June 2009. Included in the box is the netbook itself, mains charger (with UK plug, of course), a sleeve/slip-case for the netbook (which you don't often get included with a netbook; nice surprise), the battery (which is a 3-cell battery, good for about 2-3 hours on a full charge), assorted manuals and warranty information, and a recovery DVD you can use to restore the machine to its original configuration if you ever need to.

The netbook is incredibly light (even with the battery attached), and runs only slightly warm when in active use - nowhere near the heat generated by a full-size laptop. The screen (glossy) is very bright and clear, and everyone I know who has bought one has not encountered any dead/stuck pixels. The native resolution of the screen is 1024x600, which is a little bigger vertically than some other similar-sized netbooks like the Mini 9.

The included operating system is Linpus Linux Lite, which is a cut-down distribution based on Fedora 8. It includes various standard apps including Firefox (2.x, but you can readily install 3.x pre-packaged for this netbook from Acer's own site, or get it yourself if you're comfortable doing so), OpenOffice and so forth. Linpus boots very quickly; I'd say about 15 seconds at most. Closing the screen of course puts the netbook into suspend/sleep mode, from which it can be awakened by pressing any key. You're entirely free to put another operating system onto the machine, a process you should find very straightforward. Windows XP runs brilliantly on it, Windows Vista runs tolerably well, the current beta version of Windows 7 is surprisingly smooth too, and if you prefer Linux when I can recommend the "Netbook Remix" version of Ubuntu, or whatever your preferred distribution is.

Originally bought this for my 4 year old daughter because she's using my main laptop a lot, and a few of my friends recommended Acer Aspire One. The machine has totally exceeded my expectation, in fact, I like it so much, I'm the main user now :)

The Aspire One A150 Aw I bought has 1GB RAM and 120GB hard disk, enough to do all the things I'd usually do on my laptop (an IBM thinkpad). The startup time is no more then 20 seconds, and 10 seconds from sleep mode, so very convenient. Admittedly I'm a Linux software developer, so was very comfortable with Linux (in fact, prefer), however, the Linpos Linux is so easy to use, I didn't even need to teach my daughter how to use it - she just picked it up straightaway, so I think novice windows users will be just fine with this netbook. The only tricky part for non-Linux user is to install new software, however, it's in fact quite easy and straightforward to install most common softwares available on Linux by using yum (or rpm, this is a simplified version of fedora). Anyway, for me, the whole package is so good that I can't find any reason to use my old laptop anymore!

the only complaint I have is the mouse pad which is so near to space bar that it's easy to accidentally touch it and move mouse around or even click things. However, given how small it is, this is probably a reasonable trade off.
