The processor is an energy efficient 1.4 GHz Intel with ultra-low voltage that uses only 5.5 watts of energy--less than 1/10 that of a normal desktop processor--for extended battery life. This is augmented by the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD with up to 1700 MB of shared video memory and support for DirectX 10 games.
Control is provided by a multi-gesture touchpad, supporting circular-motion scrolling, pinch-action zoom, page flip and more, whilst the thermal-efficient cooling innovation ensures the notebook achieves comfortable skin temperature during use. You can keep in touch using the Crystal Eye webcam, which supports Acer PrimaLite technology. This consists of a premium sensor, firmware and lenses to provide superior video performance under low-light conditions.

The 11.6-inch LED-backlit display (1366 x 768 pixels) presents true 16:9 aspect ratio with high-def resolution and fast 8ms (millisecond) response time for high-quality media playback as well as increased readability in low-light conditions. And the LED backlight technology is 33 percent more energy efficient than standard CCFL LCD screens. Video is powered by the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD, which uses shared video memory (providing up to 1700 MB of video memory as allocated by the system memory). This graphics card is built with Intel Clear Video technology, which delivers clearer, more detailed images by eliminating many of the jagged edges and video artifacts seen when viewing interlaced content and features powerful color control to ensure videos are not too dark, overly bright, or washed out.

I wanted something easy to carry round, that didn't need a mains supply, just in case. This Acer has proved ideal, I own a software company and this has allowed me to do several presentations in a day without a charge. It works great with my projector and the sound on external speakers is very good.
The fact it has no optical drive hasn't been an issue and the screen is very good. I tend to use mine with a mouse as I don't like track pads, but this one seems better than some I have used.
I highly recommend this machine if you want something small and light, yet able to run all the business software I have thrown at it.
Out of the box, this thing really impressed me. Good build quality, very sleek. I am managing to get around 6-7hrs of development time (quite disk intensive) out of this per charge. When I just edit documents I'm getting even longer. At one point I got around 10+ hrs. Basically, I can take it out for the day without taking the charger. Very impressive. I find I don't alway have to recharge every night. I have to keep reminding myself that even when the battery is down to 20% or so that I've still got a couple of hrs left.
I've found the performance to be very decent. I'm not doing anything too intensive though. The dual core cpu helps, can't remember the speed, but in practice it's decent -- many times better than my netbook. In fact, it's so decent that I'm toying with retiring my current desktop. 3gb of RAM -- i've not had any problems running Eclipse (a java IDE) with a fairly hefty project that I created for my phd.
Windows 7 on this thing is a joy. I'm a linux developer by preference, so I'm normally a bit biased, but on this laptop Windows hasn't given me any trouble at all. Resumes very quickly (between 5 and 20secs), never had any problems with it. The Windows 7 interface is quite minimalistic and sparse -- a great improvement over vista. The windows version included is 64-bit -- it's actually much more convenient and seamless than I had anticipated. It runs my 32-bit apps (including the JVM + Eclipse and syncbackse) without problems.
Anyway, that's my experience with this laptop.Read more ›
1) extremely light (near weight of most netbooks and similar to macbook air)
2) far faster than a netbook with atom processor and only 1gb of ram
3) good battery life (scrap that, unbelievable battery life)
4) good quality screen (borrowing a friends netbook i couldnt get used to the 10inch screen with 1024 by 600 pixels. The 1366 x 768 of the acer is much much better)
5) excellent design (even when compared to my mac and hp hdx 16)
6) HDMI and SD card slot (excellent additions)
Area to improve
Though this is an excellent laptop if I had to change on thing it would be the keys. I have been using my HP HDX 16 so long and have fallen in love with the quality keyboard. If Acer could put a version of that keyboard on this laptop I would have to find some way to give this product 6 stars.
Note: The keyboard is of equal quality of anything in the same price range I have looked at.
My only gripe is that the Acer chassis is slightly twisted and doesn't sit on all 4 feet when on my desk (it's not a twisted desk - checked that). I didn't spot this until a few days after I bought it and I guess this would be treated as something I did. However, it doesn't spoil the overall enjoyment. If you want a small, light and quick machine for business use, you won't be disappointed (just check it sits flat on your desk before doing anything else).
Oh, and I shouldn't forget Amazon, great price and service - as usual
This little machine is a million times better. Everything is faster, snappier. I'm not kept waiting around, and even with Aero on full nothing lags. In terms of size it's literally the same size as the Asus 1000H - you can use the case and indeed the slipcase I bought for my Acer was a 10", despite the fact that the machine has an 11'6 screen. Portability and battery life are both excellent and the keyboard is pretty good too. I don't know yet if I've got flex, but so far I'm inclined to think not.
Just out of curiosity, I ran the PassMark benchmark tests on both my Acer 1810tz and my Vaio AR51m. The latter is relatively old now, but has a pretty good spec: a decently powerful C2D processor, an nVidia 8400GT graphics card and 2GB ram since it came with Vista. It now runs Win 7 extremely well. This little Acer did not trump it - except in 2D scores, where it did signficantly better. I can see that for myself in day to day use. All the other scores were just slightly less than the Vaio's, except obviously for graphics where the nVidia card left the Intel 4500 well and truly in the dust. Overall scores were less than a hundred points apart: the Acer got @480, whereas the Vaio scored @540.
All in all, a great purchase and one I intend to keep until it falls apart!
