The Aspire one is great for getting things done: whether you're checking your mail, managing your online bank account or chatting with friends, the Aspire one offers a simple, intuitive Linux interface that clearly organizes everything you need to surf, work or simply have fun. The pre-installed software is separated by functions and presented in 4 distinct areas on the screen - Connect, Works, Fun and Files - that is so simple it's impossible to get confused: the easier it is to get things done, the simpler it is to enjoy life.
Ergonomics and reduced dimensions do not mean the view isn't spectacular: the Aspire one has an 8.9" CrystalBrite LED backlit display with a resolution of 1024x600 pixels. Integrated in the top of the screen is the unique Acer CrystalEye webcam for live video streaming, video chats and conferences.

Amazingly clear screen and once I got used to a touchpad instead of a mouse, it was a breeze to use.
The Linux version was incredibly fast to start and run. Everything worked perfectly (except the IM client would not recognise googlemail as an email address as it wanted gmail!). It is so light and neat and yet the keyboard is almost full size and the slightly small screen didn't take long to get used to. You can do everything you need on the internet so having a limited (8Gb) disk was no concern. I just connected to my network or used google docs. I will probably never buy a full size laptop again.
