Acer Aspire One 532h-2Dr - 10.1in Netbook

Acer Aspire One 532h notebook

 

The Acer Aspire One 532h represents an incremental step-up over the company's Aspire One 531 netbook launched in the middle of last year. As such it doesn't make any substantial changes to the netbook line - this isn't a netbook that brings with it a...

Long battery life, good keyboard, newly designed lightweight powerpack

Design not very exciting, 1GB RAM could be improved on

The Acer Aspire One 532h is a capable netbook, offering the sort of battery life to make it a practical all-day device. Recent models have seen a step forward in endurance and this basic spec device delivers that, suggesting a bright year for the...

Acer Aspire One 532 review

 

Acer upgardes the Aspire One series with a new Atom CPU with integrated memory and graphics controllers

Battery life ; Improved performance

Very reflective screen ; Sensitive touchpad

This machine will not set the world alight but it is an affordable netbook that doesn't pretend to be anything too clever. If all you need to do is surf the web and read some documents then this will suit you fine

Acer Aspire One 532h review

 

The Acer Aspire One 532h is a decent netbook in isolation and has a pretty good screen, but it's too expensive and is outperformed by cheaper alternatives.

Acer Aspire One 532h review

 

Not only is the Acer Aspire One 532h slimmer and trimmer compared to the Acer Aspire One D250, has a near-full sized keyboard, but it's also significantly cheaper than some of its 10in competitors.

The Acer Aspire One 532h's clincher is its price. For around £290 this is a very good netbook. Not only that, the Aspire One 532h has a better keyboard and touchpad, offers respectable performance, very good battery life and great value for money. We...

Acer Aspire One 532

 

A solid but somewhat uninspiring netbook, and we expected more in the way of battery life from Acer's debut 'Pine Trail' machine.

The Aspire One 532h is by no means a bad netbook, but there’s nothing particularly jaw-dropping about it either. Battery life is unspectacular, while performance can’t quite keep pace with last year’s netbooks. The awkwardly-designed touchpad also...

Acer Aspire One 532H-2DB

 

The Acer Aspire One 532H-2DB Netbook packs mobility alongside notebook innovation, style and power and the brand new Windows 7 OS.

The Aspire One 532H-2DB features the next generation processor for netbooks in the form of the Intel Atom N450, built-in Wi-Fi, optional 3G and more all encased within a petite chassis that is less than one-inch thin and weighs around 1kg

The screen is incredibly reflective and the touchpad is extremely sensitive causing the user to accidental open or close programmes running on the notebook

Big things do come in small packages illustrated clearly by this 10.1" inch Acer Aspire One 532H-2DB which features numerous technologies and hardware all packed in a petite case that's less than one-inch thin and if ultra-portability is what you’re...

Acer Aspire One 532h-2588

 

When the Apple iPad shipped, pundits noted that netbook sales declined. In fact, the iPad had little to do with the decline in netbook shipments--the decline had already begun well before Apple's tablet arrived in the hands of enthusiastic users.

Inexpensive ; Very compact

Display resolution is too limited ; Keyboard and touchpad are frustrating

In the 532h-2588, Acer has produced a very average netbook at a relatively low price, with all the drawbacks and strengths of the class.

Acer Aspire One 532h-2326

 

Acer is looking to stay ahead in the netbook market with its Aspire One 532h. Though it's not a tremendous upgrade over the previous Aspire One models, the 532h is a solid, decently priced netbook. Acer may have skimped a little on the keyboard and...

Machine has a sturdy overall feel ; Inexpensive

Keyboard very slippery and hard to type on ; Touchpad/mouse buttons poorly designed

The Aspire One 532h is reasonably priced, but the keyboard and touchpad could use a makeover.
