Gary, Kent Often on the move

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I bought a refurb model saving a ton and it is fantastic the best tech purchase I've made in years
The only downside was a dodgy V Key which it looked like the refurb guys had tried to bodge but ebay to the rescue
I bought a replacement from pennies and haven't looked back I take it everywhere and it has been invaluable in finding a new job
Bad points:
my only criticism is I cant find a way to adjust the sensitivity of the mulittouch pad and with the pad having no obvious scroll line it can be a bit annoying

gee, Inverness Business user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Light and stylish - I put off buying a netbook because of the slow processors and screen resolution but I love this little thing. Battery life is very good - I don't need to carry the charger provided I recharge overnight. The screen is good and bright enough for most situations. Although I don't much care for trackpads this one is pretty responsive. Video playback is good and I haven't had any stuttering at all. The keyboard is a good size and it didn't take long to get used to the layout and feel. Wireless internet hooks up seamlessly and seldom drops the signal. Lots of USB's and the card reader is a real benefit. Runs signal to a high def TV without problems.
Bad points:
I had a little trouble getting video playback to be bright enough when I just copied avi's over - but that could just be the difference in settings between my desktop machine and the Acer. Also the screen display is a bit blue by comparison, but once again -I haven't had a comprehensive look through the settings yet. As with most laptops sound is 'adequate' but if you want good quality sound, use earphones (I use earbuds).

Mary, Norwich Often on the move

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Battery life is 6-8 hours.
Will happily run Ubuntu Linux.
It's compact and very light, while packing a decent punch in the cpu department - in all a very neat and usable netbook.
Bad points:
Would have been useful to have windows 7 starter disc instead of the acer backup software (you have to make your own discs.)
Keyboard is a tiny bit flimsy, but still perfectly useable.

Ernesto, London Business user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Best machine for the money - only reason for not giving 10 is that perfection does not exist (exccept, of course, the wife!)
Bad points:
Casing shows fingermarks and no wheel or similar scroll arrangement

not 420 retailers nor anyone on eBay,
but please don't worry even if it hurts,
you can look for alternatives or
