Acer Aspire One 751, 11.6-Inch HD LED Netbook, Intel Atom Z520,1.22 GHz, 2GB RAM, 250GB, Vista Home Basic, 9 Hours Battery Life, Webcam,Wifi (BLACK)

Okay, seems like a great deal with the 2gb Ram and 250gb HD and 9 Hours Battery.

Also available in stock in white, see amazon.

I was looking at this one and the Medion E1311 and I decided on the Medion as better processor but not so good battery life. Hope I made the right descision as this one seems to have some great reviews on amazon.

The Medion E1311 comes with XP which gives much faster performance. The lower battery life is due to the faster processor. However, choosing between Medion and Acer isn't great. I'd go for something more decent like Dell. That's just my opinion of course.

Dell decent?

This company chargers ridiculous delivery charges. They expect you to call non-geographic numbers for support (yet in USA their customers get freephone support: they are saying UK customers are not valued as Americans).

Their laptops have poor specs... unless their is a webcam, a microphone is not built in to their laptops (how primitive).

Off the comparison...
Look how they downgraded specs on larger 17" latops.

Vostro 1700 (2 years ago) -v- Vostro 1720 now.

No dialup modem build in now (£30 extra)
No TV-out now.
Basic HDD still just 160GB (after 2 years)
Centrino processor as standard as opposed to Core Duo before.
Higher price than 2 years ago.

Also, you have to wait weeks for delivery.

At least £50+VAT delivery is now £20+VAT per machine.
But, £20 is too high. It should be no more than £10+VAT.

Having had both, I'd rate Acer's reliability and service far higher than Dell's. Dell remains cheap poor quality imho.

Who wants a modem in their laptop? I haven't used one for years and I'd rather the few that did want to use one paid a premium instead of me.

Same with TV out. Anything I'd want to connect my laptop to has VGA or HDMI.

It's a business laptop - you rarely need anything bigger than that.

Processors that qualify for the Centrino label include i7 and i5, as well as the Core Duo. It's not actually the name of a processor.

The processor in this is 1.22GHz but the older Atom processor was 1.6GHz...

How does that work? (I'm not saying the newer processor is crap or slower before some smart says it... i'm just asking a simple question)

Has Dell got HDMI? No!
Not all hotels have a television with HDMI
Sometimes, a businessman goes to a location where there is no broadband.
They reply upon dial up (believe it or not).

Fine, remove them, but then decrease the price and not hide this.

The CPU present on this model of netbook is the Intel Atom Z Series from what I can remember - they are better for running on reduced power but the CPU performance suffers a bit but owners have managed to find various settings & software packages to get it running at a better throughput (it won't be as fast as the Intel Atom N Series.

Intel Atom - Z Series - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intel_Atom#Atom_Z_series

A good place to check it out more would be the Acer Aspire One User Community & Forum - in addition to that installing Windows XP onto the netbook is fairly straightforward to do as well either via an external USB optical drive or via USB memory stick.

You may be better off getting the XP model from Asda and upgrading yourself. It's £197, sold out online, but may still be available instore. Upgrade to Windows 7 (e.g. through a student software offer), swap in 2GB RAM and you have a better machine. This comes with a 5200mah 6-cell battery.


[FONT=Verdana]The only problem there is the cost involved with obtaining cheap memory and a larger hard disk - memory just now is especially expensive at this time.

You maybe better buying this one, at least they (Amazon UK) have them in stock, and all you would need to worry about is downgrading to Windows XP if you wished to.

Cheers, Scotty Boy! :thumbsup:[/FONT]

This has been posted several times at prices as low as £200 and I wouldn't recommend it even at those prices due to the horribly slow Z520 processor and Polubso chipset - even a simple thing like opening a browser window takes minutes...

If the TV hasn't got VGA or HDMI, then you'll get a better picture quality on the screen.

I know people rely on dial-up. They are a minority, and I don't want to pay for it.

I've got a laptop with a HD webcam in it and one with a much lower resolution one. The lower resolution one works much better in low light and shows colours more accurately.

It's the market price of the item. They've pulled out features that few people will use, and found they can charge the same amount. Dell is big enough to do that.

The processor in this is 1.22GHz but the older Atom processor was 1.6GHz...

How does that work?

Basically Intel is afraid that the Atom may be too good for too little money, and it could affect the much more expensive ultra-portable market. So the new version is seriously restricted, and it can be slower than the old one (or marginally faster, depending on what you are doing).

I for one am not impressed, with any of the netbook stuff. Now that they fixed the power consumption and the graphics the CPU stinks. AMD has difficulties in that segment, too, and VIA is just too slow. Gigabit is also still missing - funny for a *net*book.

Vista on a Netbook = Painfully slow


[FONT=Verdana]It's possible as long as you install the latest service pack, post-service pack hotfixes and make a few changes to the OS configuration - if I remember correctly there was a guide over at the Acer Aspire One User Community & Forum, which covered it for this model.

Alternatively replace it with Windows XP, Windows 7 or Linux - unfortunately this model can't run Mac OS X due to the integrated graphics card that it comes with (GMA500 if I remember it correctly).

Having read a few reviews on this machine it is considered good in some ways but the processor is very slow for even fairly basic stuff. This has a big impact on the battery life because the processor is working so hard most of the time, in the tests I have read the battery life in normal use is actually between 3 and 4 hours. Both Medion and Asus with the same processor achieve much better battery life but no better performance.

Shame because it looks good on paper, the screen is good and personally I like Acer.

Common Sense - you have none of it.

What an uninformed post. Let's see...

Dell decent?

This company chargers ridiculous delivery charges. They expect you to call non-geographic numbers for support (yet in USA their customers get freephone support: they are saying UK customers are not valued as Americans).


The costs for running an 0800 in the UK are not exactly cheap. Why should I subsidise the idiots who purchase laptops in this country (speaking as a former retail sales and customer support person, some people just shouldn't be allowed near laptops).


Their laptops have poor specs... unless their is a webcam, a microphone is not built in to their laptops (how primitive).

I've never used the microphone on my laptop (or a webcam for that matter). The quality offered by any built in microphone is often poor, I far prefer a separate one.


Off the comparison...

Vostro 1700 (2 years ago) -v- Vostro 1720 now.


Oh I'm loving this.


No dialup modem build in now (£30 extra)

Haven't used dial-up for the past several years. Thanks Dell for saving me £30.

No TV-out now.

True, however, Vostro is a business machine so not unexpected.

Basic HDD still just 160GB (after 2 years)

Vostro is part of Dell's business line, specifically their entry-level business line (it's not offered to home users). Most businesses do not require more than 160GB. It helps lower their costs.

Centrino processor as standard as opposed to Core Duo before.

LOL! Core (2) Duo is the name of the CPU, centrino is a marketing name - it was previously a marketing name for Intel GPU, CPU and wireless card: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Centrino. All Centrino laptops had to include a Core (2) Duo processor (once they were released).


Higher price than 2 years ago.

That wouldn't have anything to do with the really rubbish £ - $ exchange rate, would it? Back on 31 March 2008, HMRC said the rate to use was $2.0080 (http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/exrate/usa.htm). Last year it was $1.4334. Right now, you're looking at $1.60 approx. Hmm... I think that about covers it.

Two years ago I got a great £900 deal on a Dell laptop. My insurance company recently paid out more than £1000 so I could purchase an equivalent spec - prices have gone up, but, it's the exchange rate that's causing it. That's why you should vote for change.


Also, you have to wait weeks for delivery.

At least £50+VAT delivery is now £20+VAT per machine.
But, £20 is too high. It should be no more than £10+VAT.

Depends on the model, some models can be delivered very quickly. Shipping at £20+VAT is perfectly fine in my opinion.

Thanks tickedon for pointing out the obvious errors and nonsense in common sense's post. A Dell is good machine, superior in build quality by a long shot.
#26
I was wondering when someone would rip that post to shreds. Too easy.

Although centrino definition a bit off.

Historically, for a laptop to be centrino badged, it needs any intel cpu, and any intel wireless card. It doesn't imply any specific CPU, it's just used to try and push atheros, broadcom etc. out the market for wifi cards.... Dell, Acer etc. wouldn't want to lose out on all the centrino marketing already done by intel by saving a few pence on another brand of wifi card.

However, wikipedia says now (and wikipedia never lies!) that the marketing platform was dumped (only a couple of weeks ago), and intel have just renamed their wifi adapter line to "intel centrino wireless" instead. Beats calling them 3945ABG or something :)

Microphone quality is often poor on some laptops, particularly cheaper ones like netbooks. I'm not sure about this Acer, but it's quite bad on MSI Wind I have.

On the other hand I never had any problems with mics on Apple laptops. My unibody MacBook Pro has really good recording quality and it can be used not just for Skype etc. but for more serious stuff.

The Centrino rules did actually specify specific types of CPU's - see the wikipedia article, from 2006 onwards Core Duo and then Core 2 Duo were mandated. Pentium Dual Core and Celeron processors weren't eligible for the centrino branding ;)

HELP PLEASE for a computer illiterate!!!

Any help appreciated

How does that work?

It's even slower than a regular 1.6GHz Atom !

These use different video chips - it's an Intel GMA500, and does have some limited support for hardware video decoding.
It won't play games, and won't run Aero any better than a boggo GMA950 netbook - but then this comes with Vista Basic and that doesn't include Aero.

I'd steer clear - it's a very slow processor by modern standards. If you can budget an extra £100, you can pick up an Acer Timeline AS1410 - comes complete with a "proper" processor (64-bit capable Celeron 743, massively quicker than the Atom), modern video capable of HD decoding (Intel X4500 - won't play games !), 2GB of memory, Windows 7 Home Premium, and a 6-hour battery life. Form-factor is the same 11.6".

If you really need the 9-hour battery life, then choose it with the quickest Atom you can find - there are plenty of models around for a broadly similar price to this.

It does still come on a CD - the easiest way to install is to use another computer to copy the contents of the CD onto a USB Memory Stick (a 1GB stick should be enough). Then plug that into your Netbook, and install from there.

Thanks Nom. Another stupid question. When I put the cd information on the usb stick and put it into the netbook, will it automatically start installing Office or will I have to go to the 'install new software' icon and search for the appropriate .exe file on the usb?

You'll probably need to open the USB stick and run the SETUP.EXE file - but it'll run automatically if your PC is configured for autoplay from USB :thumbsup:

Personally I'd look at a refurb last generation business class sub notebook, 12 inch ish. Picked up one of these:

http://www.trustedreviews.com/laptops/review/2006/09/21/HP-Compaq-nc2400-Ultra-Portable-Notebook/p1

for £219 I think it was from Big Pockets. Much faster and more competent than most netbooks, whilst not being much larger and costing about the same. It's also a lot more durable (has a metal screen lid, less chance of breaking the TFT from the outside, and even squeezes in a DVD writer, lol.

Alternatively there's always good deals on lightweight IBM thinkpads and other models, from a few different outlets for refurb, ex lease business machines. A business sub notebook from 3 or even 4 years ago still kicks any Atom based stuff out of the water, performance wise.

If you buy one of these can you get an upgrade to Windows 7 free (or just P&P)?
