Many people reading this may have already had a look at the Asus eee PC. Although it's a little unfair to draw comparisons, it's difficult not to, as the Aspire One probably wouldn't even be here if Asus hadn't started the ball rolling.

The Aspire is a very good looking little laptop, and amazingly compact. It's about half the size of a standard laptop. With an 8.9" screen, it's easy to think you'll be straining your eyes, but it's just not so! The screen is a dream to look at, with vibrant colours and absolute clarity. I'm not suggesting you should watch all your Hollywood blockbusters on it, but it certainly does the trick quite well when out and about or commuting.

Power wise, although it's pretty much the same spec as it's main rival (The Asus), it does seem a little quicker. Perhaps that's the software, but quicker is still quicker. The keyboard is also slightly bigger than on the Asus. It's obviously not full size, but it's certainly that bit easier to use if you're using it over long periods. The trackpad on the other hand, while responsive, seems akward to use to me because the buttons are placed either side of the pad instead of underneath.

The battery life.... Hold on, I just need to find my charger...
The battery life would be fine at the 3 hours-ish if compairing this to normal laptops, but I've used the Asus Eee, and it's batterry lasts about double that. (In the 6-cell models) I just don't understand why Acer couldn't do the same.

Final verdict: The Acer Aspire One is in many ways the best choice if you're looking for an ultra mobile laptop. I only wish the battery life was better. If Acer sort this out, it will definately be the king of the ultra mobiles.
