4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent mini laptop can do everything the expensive ones do, 6 May 2009
This review is from: Acer Aspire One D150, 10.1 Inch Netbook (Intel Atom N280, 1.66 GHz, 1 GB RAM, 160 GB, XP Home, up to 7 Hours Battery Life, Bluetooth, White) (Electronics)
A friend recently bought a mini-laptop and got me thinking about replacing my old Dell Inspiron(well not so old but broken). A search of reviews online found the Acer Aspire 1, which seemed the most reasonable for the specs and price. At the same time I bought my father a HP model, quite a bit more expensive .

I'm a heavy computer user so I was worried it wouldn't cope with vigorous use and heavy apps I'm running. So far it's handled everything I've thrown at it, everything I used to do on my 'regular' laptop. The HP one and my flatmate's new Samsung mini have the exact same specs, they just look a bit more stylish. I'm happy in saying that I have the same laptop as them just 150 quid less expensive.

I should add that I've started using the Aspire One a lot more than my old laptop. It's portability and battery life make it brilliant for bringing around and I dont feel like such a fool pulling it out on public transport or bringing it to a friends place on the weekend. I can bring it away when I leave the country also - the old one was a bit too big for that.

Plus the wireless range is longer than that of any other machine I have, even my PC with an external aerial I paid e50 for!

Pros - Long battery, portability , extremely long wireless range, can do anything a bigger laptop can.

Cons - Not as stylish as it's rivals, mouse button a bit lame (all the others I've used are the same or worse tho), could do with larger keyboard buttons like the new Samsung
