"Acer is Ace!!!"

I only recently got this product, but so far i have found it a really good quality netbook.

I am a student so for me it is important to have a laptop which is samll enough and light enough to carry around to lectures and seminars, and this one is a first class netbook.

It is made by Acer, a well known brand. It has an 8.9" colour crystal brite LCD screen, 512mb mamory, and 8gb flash hard drive, and runs on Linux lite operating systems.
It also has a built in card reader, and a built in webcam.

It comes in a variety of colours (i have the blue one), and retails for around £199-250 depending on where you bbuy it. I paid £199 for mine from PC world, and i have to say that it was money very well spent.

Not only is it extremely compact and light (it weighs less than 1kg!!!!!), but it is so simple to use and the initial set up is easy as well.

I am aware that Linux Lite operating systems aren't as well known as the windows operating system, but i have to say that i personally prefer the linux system. It is so much simpler than windows, and there are less updates requried which is also good, as i for one hate having to spend hours updating my computer all the time.

The battery life is around 3 hours, and the battery only takes about an hour and a half to fully charge up, something else which i particularly liked.

It comes with a range of built in games, great for those students who get bored in their lectures!!!!! and also comes with a complete open office package already fully installed and ready to use.
Open office is the equivalent of microsoft word, and you can do everything you can do on word. I found this a blessing that it came pre-installed, as i then didn't have to go and buy a separate word package.

It is also wifi enabled, and although it doesn't have a disk drive, it has plenty of USB ports and 2 different card reader ports. You can also plug in an external disk drive or hard drive, if you ever did want to install anything, or if you needed the extra memory space.

The computer itself looks attractive and and also loads up very quickly.

Ovrall i really like this product, and would recommend it to anyone looking to buy a pportable laptop, i would especially recommend it to students as it is fairly cheap, alongside other laptops on the market at the moment
