Acer Aspire One 531 Pro review

 

Acer's latest is an austere looking netbook – but is there more to the 531 than meets the eye?

Functional rather than fun, but one of the best netbooks available for the price

Acer Aspire One 531 notebook

 

Acer has impressed on several occasions with its cut-priced netbooks, but its Aspire One lags behind rivals when it comes to quality and usability. The Aspire One 531 looks set to change this, with a highly attractive design, decent mobility and good...

Thin and neat design, build quality, bright screen

Keyboard could be larger, not revolutionary, average battery life

The Aspire One 531 doesn’t offer anything genuinely new, but it’s one of the nicest netbooks available when it comes to styling and quality. Although it comes in at the top end of the Aspire One range, it’s well equipped, with the option of 3G/HSDPA,...

Acer Aspire One 531 review

 

The original Acer Aspire One has proved one of the best selling netbooks, we hear, helped along by its competitive price circa-£200. That first model had a 9in screen and ran a friendly graphical Linux operating system; now we find Acer has kept the...

Unlike the original Aspire One, there’s less to get excited about by this me-too Windows netbook. But while it offers the usual roster of netbook facilities, there is the just-higher than average netbook speed performance, and the distinction of two...

Review Acer Aspire One 531 Netbook

 

Heir to the Throne? Acer already landed a direct hit with the fir

Attractive but subtle design; Very slim case weighing just 1220 grams; Good workmanship; Multi-touch touchpad; Bright display with good illumination; Low system noise in office use; Good sound production; Excellent battery life

Small numeric keys; Reflective display is problematic in use outdoors; High heat emissions possible under load

Everything that has the guts to be called a netbook, or not: Asus Eee1002HA, Samsung NC10. Rather less: Acer Aspire One D150.

Acer Aspire One 531 (Windows 7) (Netbook)

 

the good points are: its lightweight, portable, keyboard is fairly big to use, webcam is quite clear, and has sound for such a small machine it has everything a laptop and desktop has apart from the cd drive.

the battery life isn't that good as I thought when i purchased it that it would last for 7 hours as stated and infact it lasts for around 4 which is a bit dissapointing, other than that its a lovely little machine

Acer Aspire One 531 (Netbook)

 

Size and performance

Screen resolution means that if I am e-mailing with an attachment, the line on which I am typing is so narrow that it is hard to see. I think this is a screen resolution issue but I haven't worked out how to resoolve this.

Acer Aspire One 531 (Windows 7) (Netbook)

 

- Relatively light weight, good design - Easy to set up and get up and running - Good battery life (c4 hours)

- Performance seems a little slow although I guess this is to be expected on a smaller machine? - I know it's a necessary evil with netbooks but the screen is small!
