The One is one of the best devices in its category and represents great value for money. In some respects, the Acer Aspire One is better than an Eee PC 901. It has an excellent keyboard, solid performance and is highly portable. The Eee PC 901 still has the edge in terms of battery life and mouse input, so it’s a close call between the two machines.

For those looking for an even lower cost budget netbook, the Acer Aspire One is a worthy candidate to think about. This computer has solid build quality to handle being tossed around in a backpack or purse, and modest performance to handle common software applications with ease. Starting as low as $349 it is no question that it blows the socks off the current competing models, which are priced at $499 and up.

Offering great performance and usability. It isn’t quite perfect, but the Acer Aspire One comes damn close and is definitely the most attractive subnotebook we’ve seen since the Eee PC 701 first landed.

If you want the cheapest 8.9in netbook out there with the second-best keyboard, the Acer Aspire One is currently the one to go for – though the Asus Eee PC 901 offers better value if your budget stretches further. if the 120GB HDD, 1GB RAM version of the One becomes available with a six-cell battery, at a price that still undercuts the Eee, Asus will have a serious battle on its hands.

I was delighted to see three USB ports and a 5-in-1 card reader (SD, xD, MMC, MS, MS Pro). It even has a second SD slot for storage expansion, paired with a unique feature called Smart File Manager. This feature allows any storage space from the SD card to merge with the primary SSD, appearing as a single drive rather than two separate ones. The Acer Aspire One is banking that performance will shine with an Intel Atom processor, while the customized Linpus Linux configuration is solid and intuitive.

OK, so the machine isn’t perfect. The important part is that Acer gets more than enough right to hit the mark for basic use. And, considering the low costs to own this li’l laptop, you could get a lot of mileage out of the Aspire One. If you have simple needs, this is your notebook.

Attractive, slim design and a big keyboard for such a small system, and also affordable. The Acer Aspire One is easily the best of the current under-$400 Netbooks, but its meager allotment of memory and tiny battery limit its appeal.

The Aspire One feels like a well designed product and a pretty good start into the netbook arena for Acer. The Acer Aspire One A110L is an attractive netbook with a great keyboard, and all the ports and features you would expect, unfortunately there are similar devices out there that can get better battery life. I still think the Aspire One is a great deal for $450, and would work great for someone who is purchasing it because of its low cost and not for mobility.

The Acer Aspire One is the current pick of the breed. Figure in the curvier styling and shiny colours, and Acer moves to the top of the list, especially at the attractive price of £220.
