Product Description

Acer redefines mobile connectivity with the Aspire one, a netbook packed with fun and powerful computing features in a diminutive 8.9" form factor. Aimed at business professionals, students and world travelers, it offers a choice of operating systems, wireless connectivity, Internet access, built-in webcam and the storage space needed for digital photos. It's time to simplify your life with the Aspire one.

A great choice for students, this affordable ultra-lightweight Acer Aspire One (AOA110-1137) weighs just over 2 pounds and includes the familiar Windows XP operating system and 16 GB of storage--an 8 GB internal NAND flash memory drive and an included 8 GB SDHC memory card. It has a vibrant 8.9-inch CrystalBrite WSVGA LED backlit display, integrated webcam for easy video chatting, and Intel's latest mobile processor--the Atom. Offering a cool onyx black chassis, the netbook's smooth surface is comfortable to touch, and it's accented with distinctive details, such as the attractive orange hinge ring.

A great choice for light-packing business travelers, it comes with Windows XP Home, 16 GB of total storage, and a 3-cell battery for up to 2.5 hours of battery life.

Weighing just 2.17 pounds, the stylish Acer Aspire One goes anywhere with you.
Designed especially for mobile devices, the 1.6 GHz Intel Atom processor uses a brand new design structure new hafnium-infused circuitry, which reduces electrical current leakage in transistors to conserve energy and gives you more time away from the wall outlet--up to 2.5 hours with the included 3-cell battery. Other features include 1 GB of installed RAM (1.5 GB maximum), 54g Wi-Fi networking (802.11b/g), multi-format memory card reader, multiple USB ports, and built-in email, web browsing, and digital media applications.

It comes preinstalled with the Microsoft Windows XP Home operating system, which offers more experienced users an enhanced and innovative experience that incorporates Windows Live features like Windows Live Messenger for instant messaging and Windows Live Mail for consolidated email accounts on your desktop.

The Intel Atom processor uses a brand new design structure that packs in 47 million transistors into a single chip sized at just 22mm (0.87 inches), and it uses just 2.5 watts of power--less than 1/10 of the 35 watts used by an Intel Core 2 Duo processor--for excellent battery management. This 1.6 GHz Atom N270 processor also includes a power-optimized front side bus of 533 MHz for faster data transfer on demanding mobile applications and a 512 KB L2 cache (which temporarily stores data).

This version of the Aspire One comes with 8 GB of NAND flash memory solid-state drive (SSD), which is adequate for students and those who want to use the laptop primarily as an email and web surfing device. Faster and more reliable, flash memory provides a rapid boot-up and quicker access to applications while improving battery life. Flash memory is also more reliable than hard disk memory, mainly because there are no moving parts. Since data is written to stationary flash memory instead of a spinning hard disk, you have less risk of hardware problems with the hard disk when you're on the move. It's an ideal feature for a travel notebook where knocks and sudden movements are par for the course.

In addition, this Aspire One comes with an 8 GB Secure Digital High Capacity (SDHC) memory card--great for storing digital media. The Asprire One has one dedicated SD memory card slot for the included SDHC card as well as a second multi-in-one card reader that's compatible with five different types of memory cards--Secure Digital, MultiMediaCard, Memory Stick, Memory Stick PRO and xD-Picture Card--for maximum flexibility. The additional SD card slot seamlessly integrates with the internal NAND flash module as an added storage device. The ability to have both a multi-in-1 card reader and a SD card reader at the same time allows you to download photos from the multi-in-1 to share with others and store to the SD card as an internal storage device simultaneously.

The 1 GB of installed RAM (512 MB onboard memory and one 512 MB DIMM, 533 MHz) can be expanded to a maximum of 1.5 GB of RAM,

DVD/CD Drive
Because of its size, the Aspire One does not come with an integrated optical drive, but optional CD/DVD read/write drives can be connected to the laptop via one of the three USB ports, enabling you to create your music mixes, burn movies to DVD, and more.

This Acer Aspire One notebook has an integrated 54g wireless LAN (Acer InviLink) that's compatible with 802.11b and 802.11g networks and offers Acer's SignalUp technology for enhanced antenna efficiency. This notebook provides the following connections:

  • 3 USB 2.0 ports for connecting a wide range of peripherals--from digital cameras to MP3 players
  • Secure Digital (SD) card reader, also compatible with MultiMedia cards (MMCs)
  • Multi-in-one card reader supports SD, MMC, Memory Stick/Memory Stick PRO, and XD Picture Cards
  • 1 VGA monitor port

  • RJ-45 port for 10/100 Fast Ethernet connection
  • 56K modem port (V.90)

Screen, Video and Audio
The 8.9-inch screen has a WSVGA resolution (1024 x 600) and support for up a 262K color depth. Video is powered by the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950, which uses shared video memory with the main memory. Acer's CrystalBrite display technology guarantees the best possible visual experience by preventing the diffusion of surrounding light and internal ray. Compared to normal TFT LCDs, Acer CrystalBrite technology is able to read color coordinates more accurately, thus minimizing distortion and creating high-fidelity colors in all environments.

This notebook includes an integrated audio card with Microsoft DirectSound compatibility, and it includes two stereo speakers.

Customer Reviews:

  • Good value, great size
    As other reviews have said, the initial setup process is SLOW. Be patient, and put the laptop aside until it is done. Once the install was done, then the ubiquitous Windows Updates (28 in all for me), take their pound of flesh, er, time. Once it finally is ready for you, it boots and runs reasonably well. After a few days of use, I removed the McAfee antivirus 60 day trial that was included with the PC and installed Avast! free antivirus instead. Response is noticeably quicker with this lightweight antivirus compared to the bloated McAfee.

    Overall, the laptop is great value and very convenient size. Performance is about what you would expect with such a slow processor, but it's quite useful for web browsing (I use Firefox) and lightweight word processing. It wouldn't suit many people as their only PC, but for those trips when you want to pack lightly, or a day on the road or at a remote office, it's great. The 16 Gbytes of memory in the hard-drive-free version doesn't sound like much, but the installed applications take much less than half of this, so it's pretty reasonable unless you want to load a huge Itunes library or lots of videos.

    For it's intended application as a super-portable web browser, it's a perfect fit.

  • Aspire

    I'm a Mac, but I've been impressed with this little guy--who seems to be able to do most of the same work as my former PC's. For the price, for the portability, and for the little-fingered people, it's good machine. ...more info
  • Great netbook for what I do
    The Acer Aspire One does what I need it to do - I check my email, read the newspaper online, google while watching tv. Nothing fancy. The keyboard is a little tight but it works well with practice. I see this netbook as a replacement for my Blackberry web service - larger screen and more functionality. ...more info
  • perfect size
    I like the notebook, and wanted something small. Didn't realize that I needed to purchase a modem to make it work. Did that and it works very well for my purposes....more info
  • Can't beat the price
    I had a ASUS 701 eee previously. Good quality, I like the two SD slot feature. I will probably but a 6 cell battery eventually for flights. ...more info
  • satisfied with its light weight
    the description is true. However, remember it;s 1GB, which means it can be slower than expected and doesn't allow you save much in the PC....more info
  • Excellent Mini Laptop PC
    I absolutely love this mini laptop. I bought this brand because I have a desktop pc by Acer as well. I also choose this brand since it's got the Windows XP and since I'm comfortable with that, I stick with that. There were some other mini's that had Linux which is a mac, or mac type anyway, and I didn't want to have to learn how to use another kind of computer. I just wanted something I could open up and use right away, and this fits the bill perfectly. It runs fast and the keyboard doesn't seem too small. I've made very few typos because of the size but I'm getting used to it quickly and that's not a problem at all. I have an old neck injury and this is so nice to be able to lay back on propped up pillows and rest my neck while checking my emails and surfing the net and doing some web design and my ebay store. "This is the life!" I really believe anyone that buys this gem will absolutely love it, I can't imagine why they wouldn't unless they're just into Macs and there are other mini laptops that have that type, I think Asus or something like that. Do a search and you'll find them as well. Seems the ones with Linux are a little bit cheaper too. But I am 100% happy with Windows XP in this Mini PC! IT'S TERRIFIC!!!!!! APLUS++++++++++++++ A GREAT PRICE TOO!...more info
