Acer Aspire One 522 review

 

A graphically capable and highly usable mini machine, plagued by a terrible battery

Excellent integrated graphics ; Sharp, bright screen ; Slender and light chassis ; Strong usability ; HDMI port

Terrible battery ; Lime green might not suit all tastes ; Typical limited netbook performance ; Reflective display

Although tablets are fast overtaking netbooks in terms of popularity, especially with the recent release of Apple's hallowed iPad 2, the humble netbook still has a lot to offer the average consumer. For one, the presence of a physical keyboard makes it...

Acer Aspire One 522 review

 

The Acer Aspire One 522 (model BZ897) delivers a good, classic netbook for a very reasonable price (£309 as of March 24, 2011). Petite and slim with a handsome 10.1in widescreen LED-backlit display, a 250GB hard drive, an integrated 1.3Mp webcam and a...

Overall, the Aspire One 522-BZ892 seems perfect for no-frills netbook use - the type of portable you can easily toss into a handbag or backpack and pull out to browse the web, watch videos or make video calls. Its great battery life and modest price...

Acer Aspire One 522 Netbook Review

 

Let's not try and deny it: the netbook market is painstakingly boring. At the start, it had some imagination. Expensive Windows licenses were pushed aside for custom Linux distributions which were great to try out, but of course Microsoft came along...

Acer Aspire One 522 review

 

Acer's Aspire One 522 netbook is based on AMD's C-Series Fusion processor line, which integrates a graphics accelerator on the same chip as its application processor cores. Sadly, the end result is a me-too system with little to make it stand out from...

Good keyboard, decent 1,280x720 screen, weight just over 1kg

Poor battery life, sluggish performance, basic version of Windows

Acer's Aspire One 522 is a perfectly serviceable netbook with a decent screen and keyboard. The three-cell battery pack leads to a relatively short battery life though and the integrated GPU failed to deliver on expectations.

Acer Aspire One 522-BZ897

 

The Acer Aspire One 522 (model BZ897) is a good, classic netbook with a very reasonable price ($330 as of March 18, 2011). Petite and slim, with a handsome 10.1-inch widescreen LED-backlit display, a 250GB hard drive, an integrated 1.3-megapixel...

Excellent battery life ; Great display and good multimedia features

Type can look small on the 10.1-inch display ; Very poor benchmark performance

Compact and attractively priced, the Aspire One 522 delivers great battery life and multimedia performance, but doesn't have much raw computing power.

Acer Aspire One 522 Netbook Review

 

We have Acer's new Aspire One with us today based on the AMD Fusion platform. This 10.1-inch budget series netbook is targeted towards anyone looking for a trendy and compact netbook under 20K.

The end user price of the Acer Aspire One is Rs.16994, which is fairly decent for a netbook capable of playing back 1080p videos. If that’s all you care about and don’t mind the overall sluggish performance of Windows, then I’d recommend it. However,...

Review Acer Aspire One 522 Netbook

 

AMD refresh. The Acer Aspire One 522 is the latest netbook from Taiwan and, at the same time, the opponent of the available D255 netbook with an Atom N550. The refresh contains the AMD C-50 APU including AMD Radeon HD 6250 graphics. Is this, together...

Acer Aspire One 522 netbook review

 

The netbook’s keyboard and touchpad are also not the best I’ve ever used — so if you really want a device with a higher resolution screen and a full sized keyboard, you may want to consider a notebook with an 11.6 inch display. But in my opinion,...
