As far as value for money, portability and features are concerned, this mini laptop strikes the perfect balance considering its capacity for extended battery life and multitasking capabilities.

It's screen size measures 10.1 inches diagonally, as with other 10.1 inch model mini laptops. Its WSVGA CrystalBrite LED backlit LCD with 1024x600 resolution ensures a sufficient LED brightness level. The keyboard is spacious, making convenient to use albeit a small trackpad. However, with its 3 USB ports and connector line-up, this netbook can accommodate the use of a mouse as well as external components, making for a cleaner desktop setup. A Multi-in-1card reader supports a variety of storage cards, serving as a fitting complement to the rest of its external capability features.

Notable Features and Highlights

Power. The Acer Aspire One Mini Laptop boasts a battery life of 3 hours of normal usage on the light 3-cell Li-on battery pack. The Aspire One can achieve double the battery life on the sturdier, though heavier, 57.7 W 5200 mAh 6-cell Li-ion battery pack . Even though it packs on a bit more weight, the 6-cell battery pack beefs up this mini laptop for portability, making it great for traveling or leaving on standby mode. It also helps the laptop achieve incredibly low idle power consumption, making a 7-hour battery life possible.

Connectivity. Featuring Acer InviLink 802.11b/g Wi-Fi network connection, this mini laptop comes with Acer's SignalUp wireless technology, a jewel in Wi-Fi access. It is ideal for boosting signal strength especially when you're mobile or in transit. It's also equipped with Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR (Enhanced Data Rate), which is supported with other formats commonly found on advanced mobile phones including GSM, GPRS, EDGE, and 7.2 Mb/s HSDPA and 2 Mb/s HSUPA.

Audio and Video. The 0.3 megapixel camera is standard, but carries the notable CrystalEye label. The built-in microphone is good enough for standard communication and along with the two built-in stereo speakers is powered for high-definition audio support.

In Conclusion

Those who want extended power for their laptop will find this model an affordable and fully-featured option. It's dependable enough, and runs the Windows XP Home Edition on a 1.60 GHz Atom Intel processor. (The processor's 512 MB RAM can be upgraded to 2 GB RAM.) Recovery software from Acer, along with a Microsoft Office 2007 Trial Edition and a 30-Day Trial McAfee Internet Suite, are included for first-time users. Overall, the Acer Aspire One Mini Laptop emerges as a budget-friendly, multi-featured laptop for the seasoned user or the “aspiring” beginner.
